After a bunch of measure twice, watch this/that YouTube video again, re-read this thread and PM, and referencing Missionís FAQ, Iím finally getting dialed in after moving the rest and moving my sight.

This is all at 20yd. Top group is the first group. Bottom group is after moving the sight.



Iíll work on the walk back tuning later on.

There ya go mister  :tup:  Hereís a really good pack o tuning VIDs (over on that stinky WT forum) that I think, is a good roadmap to bow setup/tuning.

Center shot is different on EVERY bow, so I would not be overly concerned with that measurement.  Every bow tunes differently so I would not adjust anything with that rest unless you are paper tuning or walk back tuning.

You're right, but at the same time one should ALWAYS start out on spec.........

Thanks for all the help, everyone.

I went to Lucky Shot this weekend and Ted looked over my work and didnít see any reason to move the rest. He actually complimented the adjustment, which I appreciated. He worked with me on a few shots to make sure I was dialed in for 20yds and I only needed a slight vertical adjustment.

Today I shot in the backyard and got this group right off the bat at 20yds.



Feeling good about that I then decided it was time to kick it up a notch and get my heart rate up. 10 minutes of playing basketball, jump shots, dribbling, free throws, rebounds, and jog over, pull my arrows, jog to the shooting line and shoot four at 20yds.




Repeat the exercise but, then grab the gear and jog over to 30yds.




While not perfect, it still looks decent to to me.

I would recommend stripping the vanes off a few arrows and look up bareshaft tuning. Shoot one fletched arrow at 20 yards and then two un fletched arrows at the same spot that will tell you how well your bow is tuned or how bad your grip is.

Bareshaft tuning, walk back tuning, french tuning etc.  If you are grouping arrows at 40 yards call it good.  It is almost like starting over each time.

Bareshaft tuning removes the need for walk back or French tuneing. You can have great groups at 40 yards of your a good shot but have crappy arrow flight. You might spin on a broad head in the fall and wonder why itís hitting 1 ft off at 40 now.

There is no spec for center shot. If you look your bow up on the web you will see specs for axle to axle and brace height.  I think that is it.

Not true my spec manual for Elite Impulse 31 has a spec center shot.

"When setting the center shot on 2016 Elite bows, measure from the inside of
the riser from the berger hole to the center of the arrow. This measurement
should be 3/4Ē - 13/16Ē."

So Iíve beat myself up quite bit over sloppy groups for the past couple months and itís paying off. I just need to get those flyers under control.
