Default BIG difference

I made a 1/8" adjustment to my knockpoint tonight, what a difference. I think I got rid of the porpoising arrows that I was getting. The arrows really hit the target hard now. Who would have thought that that little of an adjustment would make that big of a difference. See LBR, I actually used some of your knowledge, and it worked.

Kip,

What kind of bow and type of arrows are you shooting? I' ve never seen a huge difference with that little of a change. Might be those secret indian carvings on my bow though[>:]

CT, Im shooting a Crusader, with cedar arrows. I had the know set 1/2" above level with the rest, and moved it to 5/8" . I dont know why, but it made a difference. I' ll experiment some more tomorrow and see what happens.

All my bows seem to shoot best at 5/8" . I shoot Arrow Dynamic Trad and Trad Lites.

If the arrows are porpoising, sometimes it doesn' t take very much to get them to stop.
