Good luck mate
    GiDay Wilco what do you recomend then for the grip????That could be the problem right there!!!!I noticed the other day when shootin this element it felt like I was torqing the bow,did the riser trick with a arrow in the rest and was wondering why i was still getting a tear like this????Checked the cams and no lean,so it looks like a case of operator malfunction It's the first time I've shot 60# in a while and with the weight of the element it almost feels like a kids bow in my hands,the draw cycle is also a simple yank and i'm hitting the backwall!!Tell me more about what kind of grip is best for these bows Old Mate

    Well you can add those people to the list of shooters without knowledge also....

    I do not paper tune....but only because I don't need to. I can count on one hand the # of arrows I have shot through paper in the past 3 years with a target HOYT.....and they have always been either a bullet hole or a perfect nock high left tear that I like.

    But you should have NO PROBLEM paper tuning any Hoyt....you need to twist your yoke to get the tear cleaned up....and or take off those goofy grips that come on the Hoyts. Shoot off the riser and put some tennis grip tape over it. Pull it as tight as you can get it. I just go down the handle with one wrap.

    Go on hoyts web site and buy the side plates it will be night and day difference. i tried the tennis racket tape over the bare riser but it just felt to much like a rubber grip to me and thats what we are trying to get away from

    Try the Hamskea rest way better than a Limb Driver and they hook to the limb too cost alot more worth every cent check them out at Steve's arrows.com they are bilt so much like a rock compaired to a limb driver and will last.
