Pro Tips: 3D Bow Setup and Tuning

Posted by Daniel Fowler on Feb 19, 2019 9:00:00 AM

When it comes to bow setup and tuning you can get so advanced that you end up working on your bow more than actually getting out and shooting it. I prefer the KISS Method.  Keep It Simple, Stupid!

I am currently shooting a Ritual 35 27.5” draw length at 61lbs, AAE Pro Blade, CBE Vertex Micro 3D Sight and scope, and Bee Stinger bars. After initial setup of the bow I choose the largest diameter arrow that gets me into the ball park of 290fps, then I start my tuning method, which I keep very simple. 

I start by setting my centershot at 13/16” with the cable stops hitting at the same time. Take a few shots through paper to see what the arrow is doing out of the bow and make very minor adjustments. Once I get an acceptable tear, I move to a walk back tuning method where I want my arrows falling on a perpendicular line from 10 to 60 yards, making small adjustments along the way. 

Once I get my arrows falling perfectly on that line and happy with the overall arrow flight, I lock everything down tight and begin to sight the bow in and work on aiming drills and judging targets.  Since I began dealing with Elite, and the ease of setup and tuning their bows offer, I have been able to devote more time to shooting and working on judging targets.
