    Default More Info Needed...

    What shaft are you shooting, along with draw length and pundage? Sounds like your having spine issues, could be to soft or to stiff.

    Something is not right. It look like your center shot is not correct. When your arrow was in line with your sight how bad where you off?

    Default Problem

    Okay,

    This will get you in the ball park.

    It would be better to get a view of the arrow from the shooters perspective. If you were viewing the bow from behind like you were going to shoot it this is what i would tell you. Sit down, tilt the bow towards the floor and look at the string. Is it in line with the handle and the cam or cams or the limbs and the cam or cams? If you can see this relationship, then keep that picture in your mind and tip the bow up and see that the relationship does not change and look at your rest. I bet it needs to go to the right at least 1/4" or more.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Gray is right, center shot is off. You should be able to move rest right, center it and let er fly.

    Default Once

    Once you get everything settled, mark the alignment with whiteout or sometime just in case you ever have movement. Then you will easily see it is off.

    Default Alignment

    Dave in the bush is right. I use white out on the limb bolts (That is on a compound to all you traditional folk.) and I use a Sharpie to outline my rest mount in case it gets whacked. I can give it a quick visual and confirm its A OK.

    a friend of mine had a center shot tool similar to that.
    problem we had was finding spot on bow that was flat and parallel.
    never did find a spot i was happy with.
    looking for different center shot tool.
