Found this on the net. This is how I do it.

Hang a weighted string from a nail on a target.

Stick a round sticker on the target face so that the string splits the sticker. Use your existing 20-yd pin, step back 20-yards from the target and fire at the sticker.

Don't worry about where the arrow hits.

Walk straight back to 30 yds, and using the same 20-yd pin setting,
fire an arrow at the sticker.

Repeat at 35 yds and at 40 yds, using the 20-yd pin and firing at the sticker.

If your arrows look like this pattern " / " or “\”,
then pick a direction and move your arrow rest 1/16th inch.

If the pattern gets straighter (more vertical), then that is great. Keep adjusting in that direction.

If the pattern gets more crooked, then adjust in the other direction.

Keep firing arrows and keep adjusting the arrow rest position until you get a vertical pattern of arrows.

Eventually, your arrows will hit in the target is a straight up and down line like this " | ".

LOCK down the arrow rest setting. Your centershot is perfect.

Only thing I'd add...

But, your vertical pattern of arrows may not be hitting the string. If not, and the arrows are say, six inches to the left of the weighted string, adjust your windage on your sight ring until you can nail the string at all distances.

Lock down the windage and lock down the arrow rest. Windage and center shot are now perfect.

Ok I understand what your getting at here, but what is the purpose of the string? Is it just to be more precise?

Also another dumb question, but what kind of string do you use, wouldnt you cut it if your shooting right?

Sorry for being so ignorant about the subject just trying to picture it?!?

The string is simply used as a reference to compare the pattern you're getting from your arrows... And if you cut your string -- especially with more than one shot -- you don't have anything to worry about.

I start closer when walk back tuning. First arrow at 10 yards, second at 25. Make adjustments as needed, 10 & 25 again. Then to 20 & 35, make adjustments as needed. Back to 10 and 35. If all is good then I go to 25 and 50.

Yeah, well Greg had a shorter version that I had printed off for reference that came to mind. I also have your thread printed off as well. Both are very helpful. Thanks
