    Thumbs up Extremely Simple Tuning Aid

    Stumbled on this thread on the Mathews Forum:

    http://forums.mathewsinc.com/archery...-method-85432/


    Thought I was shooting pretty good. Now, I'm shooting BETTER after a short session outlined here.

    Remember to make VERY MINUTE adjustments to the rest when necessary.

    Enjoy,

    Taylor

    Thanks, Mark

    This looks like a interesting way to do it, can't wait to try it this weekend.

    I tried this out and it did help. The conditions weatherwise were 9 degrees above zero and no wind. I shot some groups at 20 yards afterwards using the 20 yard pin, however the cold did emphasize my shots some. I'll try again later as I was cold and those cold conditions wore me out quicker than I was expecting. Prior to the adjustments I was hitting the target high, left, now I am hitting the dimond more often. Also I know that my anchor point was whacked as I worked a little faster than normal because of the cold.

    Walk back tuning is what I do. Quick fast and very accurate way of sighting in. I start at 10 yards and work all the way back to my 50 yard pin..

    Default Best tips...

    One of the quickest, most helpful tips from the forum last year.
    Good winter chore too if you can shoot in your yard or somewhere.
    Thanks!

    Unhappy Backwards

    I tried it and the chart is all backwards. Or, may that is because I am left handed. The lefties need to do the opposite on the left/right moves.

    Default Newbe question

    "Hang a string from a nail so the string splits the x-ring in half"

    Can someone explain the x-ring to me? I just got into archery and am not familiar with that term. Thanks.

    Default Target

    They were using a target with an "X" ring in the middle. It does not matter if you use a target. A coffee cup sized circle drawn with a marker should work just as well. I actually draw a cross with a marker centered in the target as my vertical and horizontal references.

    Default tip

    This is a good tip. I usually don't have to move my pins much once I get them set. I usually make a mark on the pin frame so if the pins get moved accidentally I can put them back even in the field. When I have to move them again, I forgot how I did it the first time and it makes me . Thanks
