Get some info on here about the bow. The Brute tunes pretty much perfectly by setting centershot and sometimes very very small adjustments. Most of the time I will yoke tune one with half a twist or whole one and its spot on.
What draw length?
What Poundage?
Arrow and Spine?
Arrow Length?

My belief is you can tune the bow to the shooter. If the shooter has consistent form, sometimes the common 13/16 center shot might not apply. IF the shooter is consistent, rest set up might be different than another person.

If they get good hole at various distances starting at 6 ft out to 15 yards, the arrow is flying straight. IMO they can screw on a broadhead and will likely have acceptable grouping with field points.

I like to shoot bare shafts at 20 yards to check tune. Shooting broadheads and field points is good as well. I think they all have their merits and can give feedback on what the shooter needs to adjust.

^^^^^^ listen to him .

UT I'm not arguing . I'm just saying if the OP ( who admits to being new to self tuning ) thinks his arrow is pointing way left to get a good tear , the bow is not tuned to the shooter .

I missed this , I wasn't implying not to tune your bow . Good arrow flight is very important for any bow . Especially in a hunting bow IMO . My advice would be find someone in your area who can help you a little bit and kind of guide you along . If not post up your specs here and we can start ruling stuff out .

lol no worries BH163...I wasn't sure if he was saying after moving the rest his impact was left or if at center shot it is pointing left.

Regardless a good shop is invaluable when it comes to tuning.

What I have gathered and I'm as much or more new to tuning as you... First set your rest and knock dead center/ level with the manufacturer's center marks... Then yolk tune to get bullet holes, then walk back tune to get it perfect. Then knock tune each individual arrow to get ideal flight from each individual arrow...Then your broadheads should fly with your FT's, of not you can broadhead tune, or buy diff heads...

I may not as up to date as others here but i have tuned a few bows myself and my opion on paper tuning.

If you dont like the paper tear, back up 5 ft and usually it will change.

Whats the use of paper tuning and then having to move your rest when you walk back tune in tune your broadheads?

Really? If your shots are 30 yards or less and your hitting where your aiming.Penatration will not be an issue with a small shaft arrow and a good fixed blade.
