Paper tuning a compound bow
Paper tuning is when an archer shoots an arrow ( field point installed ) through a piece of paper in order to study the rip created. The rip is a "snapshot" of the arrow's flight at that distance ( around 8 feet ) and, depending on results, lets the archer know what he has to do to perfect his arrow flight.
Paper tuning is the best way to ensure you are acheiving your best possible
arrow flight. Many things can influence results, so lets make sure we
eliminated the majority of them prior to beginning.
If you answered yes to all seven of those questions, we can move on, but if not....... revisit those specific links on this website to correct them. If you want paper tuning to be a rather pain free experience, it is best to eliminate all variables which we can control.
Standing with your feet roughly eight feet from the paper, draw back and level out your arrow. Shoot the arrow with good form and study the results. If necessary, make adjustments and repeat paper tuning until you acheive the desired rip.
