    …Walk Back Tuning with pictures

    Hang a weighted string from a nail on a target.

    Stick a round sticker on the target face so that the string splits the sticker. Use your existing 20-yd pin, step back 20-yards from the target and fire at the sticker.

    Don’t worry about where the arrow hits.

    Walk straight back to 30 yds, and using the same 20-yd pin setting,
    fire an arrow at the sticker.

    Repeat at 35 yds and at 40 yds, using the 20-yd pin and firing at the sticker.

    If your arrows look like this pattern ” / ” or “”,
    then pick a direction and move your arrow rest 1/16th inch.

    If the pattern gets straighter (more vertical), then that is great. Keep adjusting in that direction.

    If the pattern gets more crooked, then adjust in the other direction.

    Keep firing arrows and keep adjusting the arrow rest position until you get a vertical pattern of arrows.

    Eventually, your arrows will hit in the target is a straight up and down line like this ” | “.

    LOCK down the arrow rest setting. Your centershot is perfect.

    But, your vertical pattern of arrows may not be hitting the string.

    The vertical pattern of arrows may be on one side of the string.
    Let’s say the arrows are say 6-inches to the left of the weighted string.

    Pick a direction to adjust your sight ring windage. Adjust the sight ring windage 1/16th of an inch. Repeat the test. Fire arrows at least 3 distances, and see if the vertical pattern of arrows gets closer to the string.

    If the vertical pattern of arrows is getting closer to the string, then that is great. Keep adjusting in that direction. If the vertical pattern of arrows is getting farther away, then adjust in the other direction.

    Eventually, you will have a vertical pattern of arrows right on top of the string.

    Lock down the windage and lock down the arrow rest. Windage and center shot are now perfect.

    :thumbup I love anything that will makes you dead on accurate. Better you are further away the more options that open up. If your going to hunt out west you need to be good on the longer shots

    OK ,newbie question on this tuning..Is it with fieldpoints or Broadheads??? #-o ,

    I’ve been using this tuning method for years. It used to be called the “French Method.” What I have found is that, with broadheads and field points of the same weight in the same exact arrow, it won’t make much difference at all. If you’re shooting a broadhead of, say, 105 grains, the broadhead is mounted properly and is not particularly subject to planing, it will shoot to the same point of impact as a 105-grain field point.

    The French Method added consideration for a radiused patter, like a “)” or “(“, which indicated that plunger button tension was not set properly. However, if you’re shooting a release and your arrow is at the proper center shot for your bow, there’s obviously no need for consideration of side pressure/plunger tension on the arrow.

    I have been reading this and partially understand it…

    Personally my bow shoots dead on at 20, 30, and 40…. these are the areas where pin gap is pretty consistent… however when i drop back to fifty and sixty yards i get a 5 inch difference between the two to the right…

    x
    x
    x
    x
    x

    kinda like this if it makes sense…. if i move the trophy taker rest that i have which way would you reccomend moving it if i were looking from the strings to the riser from the back of the bow….

    Thanks for your input…

    Hello from France

    I discovered this method yesterday evening, and tried it this morning on my Drenalin:
    That is a great tuning method! :hugs
    No more lateral effect depending of the distance !!! =D/>” title=”Applause” /> Thanks a lot.  <!-- s:thumbup --><img src=

    I am a bit surprised to read that this method is named “the french method” in the USA: in France it is nearly unknowed !!!!

    Regards

    Olivier
