That might indicate it. Paper tuning is kind of hard with trad bows. Strip off the feathers of about three arrows and shot them about 15 to 20 yards. Shoot them the best you can.Then shoot three fletched arrows from the same distance. If your bare shafts are hitting higher than you fletched,yournock is too low.If they hit lower than you fletched, your nock is too high.

My bare shafts are tearing nock end high and to the right. Does this mean my spine is still to stiff or to weak?
