    I went to the dealer today to pick up my new Chill that I have been waiting for…After all this wait and it finally shows up, the dealer nor I can get it to tune correctly…Everything is in time, center shot was set, sights was close, peep was in correct spot and d-loop was 1/16″ over center….We shot this bow approx. 50-75 times and every shot that hit the target was crooked, stick in the target with fletching was to the left… (Kinda like a bad sever right tear). We moved rest, adjusted to make sure of rest dropped, adjusted fletchings for clearance…Nothing seemed to help…Any suggestions? I know its possible im torqueing the bow but it i just dont seem how I am torquing it that bad as well as the dealers shooting the exact same as me…I need your help!!

    Like to help but the details are in the fix. Give us the specs on your setup, draw weight, draw length, arrow length and spine with point weight. What rest you are using? Did you paper tune it? Any details will be helpful.

    If you run the OT2 software on your bow and setup you will see what spine arrow you’ll require. I ran it for me using a Chill with a 28″ draw and at 70 # and a .300 spined arrow was better than a .330/.350. You might want to look at trying a .300 spined arrow to see how it tunes.

    I own the MR7 and some arrow charts say I can shoot a .350 spined model but I find it does not fly well or tune well.

    They did have issues with the plastic under the limbs what where making them go out of tune, their weren’t holding the limbs tight the way they should. I’d go back to the dealer an have it looked at. I’m betting that’s it. hope you get it shooting better!

    If this is it then your dealer should be able to take care of it and get it tuned properly.

    You’re so far behind.   That was on the very first demo bows sent out to dealers.   NOT a current issue or problem.

    I woud suspect you are under spine.    It appears the Chill likes arrows on the stiffer side, especially if you are going to shoot broadheads with it later on.   It should tune out very nice with correct spine arrows center of berger and straight back 90 degree on the string and very close to 11/16 off the riser to center of arrow.   Now that you have a few shoots on your string and cables check cam timing at full draw.   Verify that they are in sync going into the valley.
    And since you are using Blazer vanes double check for vane contact.  Use lipstick or power coat.
