I bought my first bow a few months ago (Chill) and I have really enjoyed playing around with it. It came from the Pro Shop already set up, but I am too much of a tinkerer and I think I messed it up.
When at full draw, my peep sight to sight housing is partially blocked by the strings. I want to get a full view of the sight housing so I want to adjust some things, but wanted to run my thoughts here first.
First, I will move the sight housing to the left until it clears the strings at full draw. And then lock it down.
Second, I will adjust the rest left so that the shaft of the arrow is inline from the nock, through the rest, through the sight pin out to the tip of the arrow.
Third I will adjust the height of the rest (if needed) so that it is not angled up or down…..instead giving it a perfectly straight from the nock through the rest out to the tip of the arrow.
I think these are the steps I need to take, but I am concerned with one thing. If I move the sight housing and the rest too much it will not put the arrow inline with the full thrust of the string direction. Is that bad?
I think I found my answer while researching. The 13/16″ OC really cleared things up for me. Without that little bit of info, I was way off.
I also would recommend check your arrow spine to match your setup. I have seen a few on another forum using too weak of an arrow for this bow and complaining how difficult it is to tune. Using the right arrow makes it so much easier.
