    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 !!!!

    Does this method assume your nocking point is correct?

    tuned to what degree? I thought that was what the walk back did. Is the walk back considered a fine/ micro tune? Sorry for my retardedness.

    :D Sorry ..that should read bow is spec tuned…bow should be Spec tuned than one can run a few arrow thru paper for nock point…paper tune for nock point should only take a few arrows…than you can group tune..
    makes process much faster

    Most folks attribute this method to Gerhard Gabriel and/or Vic Berger…

    There is a difference in that Vic Berger method only uses fletched arrows and assumes a few things… it is what is commonly referred to as walk back tuning and sometimes French tuning…

    I believe the “French” part my refer to the retreat (walk back) part… So it is very likely that the FRENCH would not use that term…

    Here is a brief explanation of both methods.. http://www.public.asu.edu/~roblewis/Arc … g.htm#L242

    By the way… anyone doing a little research can quickly see that the method has been modified, bastardized, shortened, chopped and channeled over the years but the general concept remains…

    Why the weighted string? Couldn’t a small straight line, drawn with a straight edge (ruler) work?

    :D Not without a level…the idea is to have a straight level line..
    if you used a level straight edge marker…much easier to hang a cord with weight and let gravity level it..
