Default Tuning a monster

i have had an XLR8 for around a year, i wanna tune it to make sure it's perfect, because i had to switch everything to a hunting setup, and now i've put everything back on for comp, i wanna make sure my centershot is good, i had it put on a hooter shooter last year, and the rest seemed to like to be closer to my riser, also, is there any secrets i dont know, maybe they shoot better with a limb bolt turned out a quarter turn or something weird like that, and advice would be appreciated.

You got a lot of bow there. Start by making sure it's in spec. & the easy thing to do is walk back tune. This will get you grouping great at all ranges with you arrows. The walk back is a very effective way to get your bow & arrows working together.

Good advice,



I didnít mean to give you a bunch of weird ideas Ė just things I have done. There are plenty of folks here that have the proper knowledge in bow tuning, maybe someone will chime in.

I apologize for info, didnít mean to stir you astray.


Hopefully you can hook up with someone sharp on the Mathews
