Bow String is center of arrow and pins are centered with string and arrow shaft and bow shoots 7 inches left at 12 yards

Sounds like your center shot is out of tune.

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.

Are you shooting with your bow hand open so you dont torque the bow to the left? Harvester has a good idea with the second arrow on the bow shelf, never thought of checking center shot that way

My PSE has a line on top of the shelf. U can look down the top of the arrow and tell if it is centered or not. Maybe Diamond bows have one.

Easy fix, check and make sure the arrow is centered over the berger hole and your nocking point should be 1/8th" above square. Next, take a tape measure and measure from the riser to the center of the arrow—that measurement should be 7/8". That is your starting point. From there walk-back tune it—stand at 15 yards and shoot at a point high on the target, from there move back 5 yards at a time while using the same pin at the same point, (I like to go out to 40yds). You should have a completely verticle line of arrows. If you do not have a verticle line, and it is diagonal, then move the rest in the direction you need to get the bottom arrow even with the top one (if the bottom arrows are left of the top, move the rest to the right in 1/16" increments).

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