OHbowhntr,
Thanks for the link to AT...Now, I will be able to BH tune witha lot less trouble than otherwise. I am new to this so links like you gave are a GREAT help.

Andrew,
Not a problem!!! Any time I can help somebody so they don't have to learn the HARD WAY, which is pretty much how I learned everything in hunting and archery over the last 17-18yrs, I'll readily do it. That's one of the best step-by-step walk through's I've seen and I put it out there because it is such a good one for someone to learn on.

First, I think you need to check fletch clearance!!!! Then I'd start looking to see if you need to bump the rest. If you have a clearance problem, you NEED TO FIX THAT FIRST, before you even consider anything else. Once you are COMPLETELY sure you have NO fletching contact, then start looking elsewhere.

No problem Seth, I know how frustrating it can be, and this little thing we call the internet can help us solve so many problems and pick the brains of so many. I wish it had been around 15-20yrs ago when I was trying to learn how to hunt, then trying to figure out how to shoot a bow, etc. Hell, I shot 2212's with 125gr BH's out of a 70# bow with fingers pulling 31"!!!! And let me tell you, I destroyed those things in short order also. I hit a target at 3D shoot one time and the rest of the arrow snapped off and went sailing through the woods. Maybe 18 targets in, I'd destroyed ALL 6 arrows I had with me. After the people behind us saw the first couple snap, people started "flinching when I drew the bow!!!! Nobody ever told me I was shooting an arrow meant for a bow with about 25# less draw weight. I'm surprised none of my buddies or myself were ever injured!!!!
