How many different variations to paper tuning is there?? HOW do you paper tune??

Me if forced too I set up at 8' and adjust from there the nocking point if going up and down and spine or rest if side to side.

Personally I do a Super Tune which is totaly different.

Many folks papertune with field points and are really surprised when they punch a broadhead thru the paper.

Yes indeed, they can be different.

With my hunting bows...

I paper tune for a start. I do it the way most do. (6 to 10 feet from the paper, shoot, adjust, etc.) But, ultimately, I broadhead tune to find the truth, if you will. (The Easton Tuning Guide outlines this.) Basically, I'll take three arrows with field points and three of the same arrows with my broadhead of choice and shoot them all at the same spot on a target 20 to 30 yards away. Minor adjustments are made to the rest and/or nock point to bring the groups of arrows (broadheads & field points) together. At that point when I have broadheads hitting where field points do I lock everything down. Usually, the bow will still paper tune well once this is done. If not, it usually means the arrow is over/under spined or something else is out of whack (like idler lean on a single cam).

Jeremiah how much do charge to do this? Heck you aren't that far from me - couple to maybe three hours driving at the most. If you were any closer I'd be at your door step cash in hand. :yes: :lol:

The super tune I talked about is this..

I start at 20 yards shoot a group on the target, hang a string with a plumb bob down the center of the group. Step out to 40 yards ( or 50 ) and using my 20 yard pin aiming at the same spot I shoot another group. In theory the group should be below the first but often it is not and adjustments are needed to the rest to compensate. Some adjustments are minumal.

After adjusting the rest repeat at 20 and then again at 40 till the groups are one above the other. Then I shoot my broad heads everything has worked out for me doing this. Instead of paper tuning. Last year I had a 3 inch group at 75 yards with the G5 Montec 100 grain heads. Or any other heads I choose to shoot for that matter.

Bowdoc Jim thanks, this I can do myself.

I use a Rip Cord fall away rest that is fairly easy to adjust. So you say move the rest and not the sight for tuning in better grouping of target points and broadheads.

In the past I have made minor moves on my sights for hunting or broadhead shooting. Your method ought to eliminate that if all else is correctly in tune.

Rowdy Yates Yeah it works well for me doing that way, it is a differnt way of tuning But works well when done correctley and then you don't have to re-adjust between broad heads and field points.
