Well, I finally got my buddies bow all squared away today... We were having a little trouble with his drop away rest. We used chalk on his vanes and finally figured out that his rest was not getting out of the way fast enough. Once I got the timing down< low and behold we got the bullet hole in the paper that we were looking for.

Thanks for the advice Dave. I tried shooting carbons off one of bows with a drop away and I could not get it to hold a pattern. Tried everything but the chalk. I will keep this in mind as last week I put the stabilizer I got from you and some sights on my newer bow and I put the drop away I have on. Just need to get my carbons and a new release and I will be tuning away.

Glad to help... the blue chalk showed up great on the black felt which cover the drop away arm, easily showing us that the launcher arm was not getting out of the way fast enough.

You can also use your wifes lipstick (of course bright red works best), put it on the edges of all vanes. You can also put white masking tape over the things that the vanes could potentially come in contact with. The red lipstick will show up great on the white tape.

Just make sure you don't put any on scratch or we might need to have another talk...

Glad you got everything straight. i just had my new Vapor Trail string and cables put on my bow and had my Carbon Express Mayhems cut down. We paer tunned at the pro shop and BANG no adjustments needed on my rig. Hopefully we can get some shooting this week and get Snivs straight to.

Walkback tuning is the only way to go. Can't just depend on paper. Cam timing BH/ATA are important.

I have been bow hunting for 19 year and have never paper tuned my bows. Always wanted to but never did. I shoot pretty good in my mind, about a dessert plate at 50 yard consistant.

My Question is how do I paper tune my bow? should I do it myself or go to a proshop?

Thank for the help in advance.

If you don't have the frame to paper tune you can use an old pict frame, and go to a hobby shop and get a roll of paper or in a pinch you could use news paper. Paper tuning is mainly for arrow rest adj, cam timing, brace height, and axel to axel are just as important. I mainly never paper tune, walk back tuning is the best way.

If your arrows are flying straight and your good with what you see, then if it ain't broke don't fix it.
