On an older bow, paper tune it(you're rest should always follow the "tear" in the paper), dial it in, and hunt. You could be over spined, or have a punching issue. Sounds like TNDeerGuy should be able to get you up and going in a hurry.

And, don't judge how it is shooting by the angle of the arrow in the target. They can hit "hard" and "soft" channels as they go in and do all sorts of crazy things.

It will be much better to have someone stand behind you while you shoot and judge the arrow flight.

You will be well served taking the time to visit TNDeerGuy and watch how he tunes on it. With the Easton paper tuning chart it isn't that complicated, but can get frustrating if you move things too much at once.

It can be a combination of nock height and arrow rest position. Someone that has done it a few times can definately speed your learning curve on it.

it was consistently going into the haybale target at the same off angle, which I seem to have fixed now, so I don't think it was a channel in the target. But yes I will be having Tndeerguy look at it and will learn from it. Right now it's shooting OK and I will take it in the woods but limit my shots, but I still need to get it fine tuned so it's shooting near perfect.

You may be canting your bow during the shoot. If you're right handed and the top limb and cam is tilting to the right you will shoot left. You can even be using an "open" hand to hold the bow you can still cant the bow. Watch how the bow sits in your hand. You want the bow to be on the thumb side of your life line of your palm. More on the fatty part of your thumb. This position puts the bow in the bow to bone position and torque is less likely to occur.

You could check your center also by nocking an arrow and align the string up in the center of the riser. I align the string on the upper and lower part of the riser the best i can to get close to center. if the tip of the arrow is going right or left of center move the rest to get it centered. This will get you very close and then you can make minor adjustments to get it near perfect.

It's like with a Mathews bow, it has a center line mark on the grip, you align the string up with that mark to get close to center.

Kinda smiling here. When I think of all the animals I killed with that bow and how well it shot for me, I tend to think the problem is not with the bow. However, I shoot fingers and CM shoots a release. That is one aspect plus he is shooting a wrist strap (something I ardently hate) and the open hand makes a difference.

The attack one does not let me center the arrow without the vanes hitting the riser. The way it was set up when i bought it from you had the arrow going to the left which it has to in order to keep the vane from hitting the bow. Tndeerguy pointed this out and also showed that I was pulling my shots and the biscuit was causing the arrow to fly crooked.
