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

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

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
