Default paper tuning and d-loop

have been read bow tuning, well after i read paper tuning and they talk about adjust the nock and arrow rest for better tune, but i wonder if they do that with d-loop and adjust ??

i have been reading and hope to do my own tune up my bow and arrow for next season,

Not real sure I understand your question but....

I set the top of the rest to the center of the berger hole, then I move my D-loop for paper tuning. Once I get a good tear I put knock sets on my string, then I broadhead tune. Any adjustment that need to be done after putting on knock sets I do with the rest.

The D loop or nock point is adjusted up and down depending on the paper tear.

If the tear is nock high, move the nock point down.

If the tear is nock low, move the nock point up.

Note: Check at three distances before moving the nock. Sometimes an arrow will bounce off the rest if the nock is low but it will tear the paper as if it is nock high.

As always with bow tuning, if moving it this way doesn't work, move it that way, even if it's not logical.

Keep your changes very small.

If moving your rest left and right doen't help, check for bow hand torque or cam lean.

I hope this answers your question,
Allen

yes if limbs are tuned correctly and the paper tune is off the compensate by moving the rest or d loop according to the tear.

is it waste time to remove or loose the d-loop everytime it need tune or adjust ? my d-loop is just locked like tight from new brand ? do i have to had a loop tool and a string ready to install on string ?

how will u going to shoot with loop when paper isnt tune, and loose the loop again and over ?
my bow is single solocam and i measure riseer and limb to string from top and low they are equal the same measure

well thats a difficult question, ive worked at a few bow shops and usually i move the rest before i change the loop. and yes i usually just retie a whole new loop when i change it. take the loop off and nock an arrow according to what looks straight outa the rest then tie the loop after u check it with a square.

i think they will have to write the note and have bowhunter read in magazine and input post in fourm d-loop and paper tune basic and step to step, but most time i have read and they show a knock on string but not d-loop

i want to do the paper tune wit4h d-loop and make sure my bow shoot like bulletproof,
will have to buy some foot of loop string or rope from archery online store or classifield, i wonder what loop pleir do u use coz i like to make loop to little small to fit me better than long loop
