Default Bow tuning slick tricks

i doen't have a bow shop to go to b/c the one near me is an old shop and mostly handles guns now. i love the slick tricks but i can't seem to shoot acurate with them b/c they keep gliding up and the arrow would go high every shot what does that mean. is my rest elevated to high?

Pretty much that's what is going on. YES. Do some searching and see if you can get a copy of Easton's Tuning Guide. Use it as your tuning bible.

Tuning is a big part of any setup, but be sure your arrow spine, and FOC are ok. Also make sure all your heads spin true, then you can proceed with tuning.

Tricks are more forgiving of a slightly bad tune as long as everything else is good.

This chart is good, don't get me wrong . . . but it is the last step in a series of tuning tasks. You have to have arrows of the right spine to start with - and you should paper tune the bow with field points before getting into the stuff on this chart.

Yep I agree 100%
It all starts with the arrow...
Then I move on to paper tuning
then walk back tuning
then broadhead tuning (chart above)
Then feildressing..
