    I don't know but it might be the rest. Did you check for any kind of cam lean on top and bottom cam? That might be it.

    first off westy, give me all the info with youre set up.

    draw weight
    arrows weight/spine/length
    draw length
    check cam timing
    i would check the cam lean first by putting it in a bow press relaxed and put a straight edge on the sides of the cams and make sure the amount of space between the straight edge and the string is the same amount on both sides. if it isnt then you need to put twist's in the yoke to compensate for the amount of cam lean you have. the qad rests i have fooled around with have been very finicky to tune. start off by relaxing the down cable and putting the activation cord of youre rest in the cable but dont tie it in. now take it out of the press and draw it back, when you get the bow to full draw the activation cord should be close to being timed. all you need to do is make sure when you get to full draw is make sure the marks on the thumb wheel are lined up. then when thats done you can tie the cord into the cable. this should get you a very close reference to where the cord should be timed at. i like the vaportrail limb driver rest cause there's none of this timing issues i have to deal with. hope this helps my friend.

    Good luck

    oh i promise if you do then you will be buying one. for me, it has to be the easiest rest to tune and set up that there is. here is a link to the video and some more info on this rest.

    Yes, be sure to check for cam lean. I purchased a BowTech AirRaid about 2 years ago and couldn't get a clean punch through paper for the life of me. However, the harness was not a "split-type" but a "u-shaped" style that did not permit anyone to compensate for any type of limb torque by twisting one side or the other. I ended up shipping it back to the manufacturer to see what they could do with it. In the end, I had to pick out a new bow (excellent customer service, by the way).

    FYI, my tear was also (right-handed bow) right-to-left. Meaning my fletching entered the paper to the left of the tip. I could introduce a tail high or a tail low by adjusting the arrow rest, but nothing I did improved the tail left tear.

    Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

    Everyone here in Oz with any ounce of knowlage in this area has said paper tune is for the birds and most new hoyt bows won't give you a perfect tear at 3 yards as the arrow has to come around the riser is this correct????????

    westy, what i do is i will stand 6 to 8 feet away from the paper rack and get a good hole. and yes any bow that is right will punch a good hole through paper. then when i get a good tear then i will do the walk back tune method. then when that is done i guarantee the rest is perfect.

    If you have a nock left tear, you should move the rest to the right, not the left. This may be your solution. Its much easier than fixing cam lean.

    start by just eye balling the string down the center of the riser. then put the rest at that position. if its not shooting a bullett hole through paper then, start by checking cam lean with a straight edge on the side of the top cam. there should be a small gap between the string and the straight edge on both sides of the top cam. if not, adjust accordingly. oh, and if you have the rubber grip on the bow then i highly suggest you take that one off cause its very possible you are torquing the bow. Good luck mate
