    They all work well if done properly. That being said every bow is different and some don't paper tune that well. But they do when it comes to walk back tuning or another method.

    Paper, walk back if I'm not satisfied with how the bow is shooting.

    That's my thought too. I usually use paper to get "close", I don't even try for a perfect bullet hole, just to get rid of large tears, specifically up or down for my rest/nock set. Then I usually do a walkback to secure my centershot.

    This last time I tried a french tune instead of a walkback, and I gotta say that is was very easy! I tested with a walk back after and didn't have to change a thing.

    Usually before hunting season, I'll broadhead tune, just to be sure that everything is flying the same. They're all just tools in a toolbox and each have their purpose and place.

    My brother in law says its all a waste of time, but I feel that if I run all these "tests" and they pass... my confidence in myself and my equipment is at a high. Especially when that thirty point buck walks in front of my stand!
