I don't know where the BT's like to center at but I always START at 13/16 from the riser and I will never use a lazer for center shot,atleast not one that mounts to the riser.

Greg, 13/16" will get you going and ready to walk back tune. I don't believe I've ever had to vary off of that over 1/16" on any of my Allegiances. I usually just eyball everything up intially, check with my laser tool, and walk back tune.

yep, everyone's right. Mine is pretty close to that mark as well. I've always set rests up to be centered on that curved trough in the middle of the shelf. It seems pretty close there to start. Of course arrow spine has a lot to do with it too.

Todd's right about the 13/16...and you can usea riser-mountedlaser with complete confidence on your BowTech because they make the riser straight. [8D]

But is it square. And is it square at full draw. Ok,I quit,no need in starting this debate again.

I always set centershot with the center. Put an arrow on the rest and look at its tip in reference with the cams.

When you tune it, your going to move it anyway.

I always did that as well, but was looking for a shortcut.

If a Eze Center chot tool isn't available, another easy thing to do is to center your arrow in the center of your 'stabilizer'. This is just a starting point.
When the paper tuning begins, 9 out of ten times your rest position will move off of center shot a tad.
