    I had my bow tuned at the end of last year. it shot fine all last year and so far this year but it has started shooting low.. I have the HHA optimizer lite on it and it is set in the lowest hole it can go.. I haven't changed anything on it, anybody have any ideas?

    String more than likely has stretched. I would check if the arrow is setting level on the rest. If not re-level the arrow either by moving the rest or the nocking point. If that ok might want to verify that your anchor has not changed from last year. Good luck.

    Take it to a bow tech. Likely strings stretched , rest moved, or peep moved. Possibly any combination there of.

    If they are any good , I’m sure they will. Pay them well, take care of your bow techs and they will take care of you.

    Shouldn't need a new one. If it did stretch to the point the bow is out of spec Axel to axel should just need to add a few twists to get it back in spec. Then of course will need to chalk arrow alightment, peep height and alignment and over all tune. Not detrimental. Like Frank said a good bow show should get you back in shape.

    Also dont store your bow in a non conditioned place like the garage. Its rough on it with the changes in temps and humidity. That can lead to stretch and such and worst case de-lamination of the limbs.

    good luck.

    same thing happened to me...twice, once was peep sight (shop didnt tie it in and I didnt ask them too rookie mistake,) once was nocking point shifted (up i think), went ahead and marked it all now so I can tell if its the Indian or the bow screwing up (its usually the indian in my case).
