    After setting centershot with french tune, you don't move it to bareshaft. You then use the split yoke to adjust the bareshaft.

    Alright that makes more sense. I will tinker with it more tomorrow.

    [QUOTE=tfox;620791]After setting centershot with french tune, you don't move it to bareshaft. You then use the split yoke to adjust the bareshaft.


    I French tuned again and this time I went out to twenty and thirty yards everything went good, I also took one full turn out of the bow on the limbs. I shot the bare shaft next, then added 2 twists to the left side of the yoke and 2 twists to the right side. This was the results at 15 yards.

    This is where I was aiming



    Not sure where to go from here.

    Keep adjusting yoke to bring bareshaft over to fletched. I would stick a broadhead on and see if it is hitting high. If it is, adjust rest down. If not you have a slight timing issue.

    Let me add, I believe you have increased the poundage too much. Your spine should have been perfect before. So, if things start to look like they aren't responding positively to your adjustments, that would be my first correction.

    I shot out to 50 yards with fletched arrows to French tune and made one tiny adjustment to the rest and sight. + 2 twists to the left side yoke and -2 twists to the right.



    I am thinking your right with the spine. I will turn the limbs down again, I think that's why the bare shaft is impacting at that angle. Please correct me if my thinking is wrong.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned with the angle of the bareshaft. It might be spine but more than likely it has more to do with an unstable arrow trying to penetrate a hard target.

    Even if I see the arrow flying at that angle shooting from twenty yards? I am going to try a slick trick and see how things go.
    Now if a fletched arrow impacts left or right with a broadhead do I adjust the rest, sight, or the yoke? Vertical I know I have to adjust the rest.

    X2, bare shaft angles can be tricky both in a block and even more so a target bag...be careful and don't put a whole lot of stock in it unless you have other factors or indicators pointing to an issue.

    If the arrow is impacting left or right with the bareshaft hitting with fletched, you have a spine issue, inadequate fletch or your broad heads are not aligned straight in the shaft.


    If the broadhead is hitting high, then your rest is too high or nock point is too low. If it is the same, you have a timing issue per bareshaft impact.

    I actually like to set timing by creep tuning and that usually eliminates vertical issues.

    Broadhead and field point at twenty yards.

    Shot at 30 yards and had to drop the rest. Still needs a little bit more fine tuning. Have to wait till next weekend, getting to shaky with the bow and have some nursing homework.

    Did the broadhead impact right of field point?

    For reference. Bareshaft hitting right is a weak spine reaction. Broadheads hitting right is a weak spine reaction.
