Default Bow Tuning Books?


Can anyone reccomend any compound Bow Tuning books. I really want to learn more about archery and tuning your own equipment so that I can become truely undependent. I want to understand everything about FOC, Spine, tiller, brcae hieght, etc. and how it effects shooting. I have read everything on HNI I can find on tuning but it is still fuzzy to me with everyones different veiws. Any help appreciated, thanks.

Check out Easton's Tuning Guide. Here's a link.

Tuning and Silencing Your Compound Shooting System by Larry Wise. It's getting kinda old and maybe a tad dated, but it's still a good source.

Thanks for that link RIStrutStopper, great info. I have seen that book on ebay and wondered if it was any good Arthur. I think it was about $12.00. Im gonna have a look at my pro shop to see if they have it.

You are right. It is quite dated. Even his 4th edition that was published earlier this year is not as up to date or as complete as one would hope. But it is pretty good at laying out some of the basic stuff.

Not a book, but there are a couple of pretty fair videos. George Ryals video covers some of the target tuning techniques. Lawler Outdoors also has a pretty good video for the basics.

These are not as complete as they should be, but they will have to do until Len produces his video!

I should check those out too. I didn't think of that before. Heck that would be easier than reading.I think I would probibly understand it a bit better too. Who is Len and when does his video come out? Thanks.
