Had a buddy of mine from work who couldn't get good arrow flight from his bow he'd just bought. I told him the other day at work to bring it on out this morning. I set the bow up, which was way out, and then starting shooting the bow thru paper. It would not tune. After further research found he was sold a bow and aluminum arrows which were way underspined for his bow. I happened to have some XX78 superslams 2315's from my old PSE Mach 8 setup which were spined correctly for his set up and cut to length. After only a few shots he was shooting bullet holes thru paper, he was also way overdrawn with his set up which I adj to fit him. It is somewhat disturbing to me how little time many bow shops will spend getting a customer set up properly. One of the main reasons I bought the equipment and tools to do my own work for many yrs now...

Also FWIW, the bow would shoot incredibly different when I shot it thru paper compared to him. Any of you local fellars need some personal help let me know. I hate to see a fellar archer and hunter struggle with a bow set up problem.

Wish you was closer Bobby cause I am trying to start to do my on work. while I know how to do somethings and alot of things I am still trying to understand. I am the type that can read something and not quiet understand it but if someone shows me one time I have it down pat. I am having a little trouble right know getting perfect broadhead shots. I can shoot a 3 inch group out to 40 yards with field tips. My broadheads I just can't get them like I want them which I might just be trying to be to perfect with them. Some arrows with ST are shooting good and some are shooting just OK.
