How to fix. Nock an arrow, then, with a second arrow put the insert end toward the bow string. Now hold that arrow firmly against the shelf/riser and see how far the nocked arrow is out of align with the one you are holding against the shelf/riser. Adjust from there and get as close as possible to parallel.


Dumb question but wouldn't the reference arrow need to be level with the Berger hole?



The "reference" arrow would be held on the verticle part not on the shelf itself. His right and left is out of tune.

Hows your arrows flying? If your getting good flight with broadheads and FT, it is very common on some bows and with some shooters that the pins end up left of your arrow and string for a right hand shooter (opposite for left hand). It's riser torque caused from the cable guard or roller guard which ever you have. Your pins dont always have to line up with the arrow and string to shoot good.

I have the FLX which flexes when drawed....suppossed to reduce riser torque....finally got it lined up and shot it straight at 10 yards but shoots 8 inches left at 35

Have you walked back tuned that bow? It is not uncommon for a sight to be left of the string and arrow as previously mentioned for a right-hand shooter.

If your feel the bow is tuned don't worry bout where your sights end up. The way A shooters grips the bow as well as some riser torque can play a role in where ur sites end up in relationship to ur arrow and rest. Good arrow flight and hitting where you aim is the goal.

Are you absolutely sure that they are wobbling? If you have widely contrasting fletchings (one green/two white as an example), it can give the appearance of them wobbling, but in fact they aren't. Another possibility is your getting contact somewhere-get some of your wife's lipstick and put it places that are suspect then check your vanes and see if lipstick is on them.
