    I am a first time mathews owner!¬† I have a ZXT 60# 29″ DL with a Whisker Biscuit.¬† I like to tinker so I am starting with the centershot.¬† The rest places my arrow vertically at the berger button.¬† Now, horizontally I have read that I should start with the arrow center 13/16″ away from the inside face of the riser.¬† Done..If I load an arrow with this setting the arrow looks to be pointing slightly towards the riser (right hand bow).¬† If I stand the bow on its cam and look down from the top aligning the limb bolts the arrow does appear to be pointing to the right (or towards the riser).¬† Is this normal???¬† I will paper shoot it tonight.

    Welcome to Mathews family. I have a rh¬†7Z extreme and my centershot is up 13/16″. I have a ripcord red arrowrest on it. When arrow loaded, it looks pointing very slighty¬†to the to the riser. My bow shoots well fieldpoints and broadheads att 40 ydrs.¬†¬†How did your papertune go?

    I have been shooting for 25 years, with good success in the field and the paper tune I just did taught me something. ¬†My grip has more to do with my paper shot tear than my rest does.¬† I can set the centershot to center of the limbs (slightly over 13/16) and depending on ever so slight variations on how I apply pressure to the bow handle with my hand I can get a slight tear left or a slight tear right.¬† I have read all the articles over the recent years about how to grip the bow and I still have an issue with it apparently.¬† I attached a reference to the back of my sight that gives me a visual reference with my aiming pin when I shoot….¬†¬†this allows me to see any torque off nominal while I’m aiming.¬† After shooting with this for a while I should develop a more consistent grip (or lack of grip!).¬† My walk back looks good out to 50 yards, but like many of us on this forum I am searching for perfection! Thanks
