    If your spring steel rest is to weak what does your arrow do??
    If it's to stiff what does your arrow do??

    I got a high tear I can't seem to get rid of..:bored:

    What launcher do you have on it now? Usually, if a blade is too stiff it doesn't give enough and kicks the tail end of the arrow up when shot. This could be the problem. Or it could be an underspined arrow or nocking point location. Being as you are paper tuning I assume you have been changing nock setting.

    You do know that the launchers come in 3 different thicknesses, right? Look at TT's website for the recommendation for your arrow weight.

    I believe I have a .10 narrow launcher and shooting ACC 3-60 with 100 grain tip. the lanch arm seems soft.
    I want to set up some "Fat boys" with 150 grain tips in them.

    I am more on a fact finding mission more than a "I use such and such..."

    besides buying all the different sizes lanchers and shoot a arrow to see what they would do...

    what's the sign of a week launch arm??
    what's the sign of a stiff launch arm??

    I would like to know this as well. I am currently using a .008 with a 390 grain ACC 3-49, and it seems to shoot pretty well, even though it is recommended to use the .010 blade. :noidea:

    Me and Josh have the same problem, everyone can tell us what launcher to use, but can't tell us why that's the arm to use.:dizzy:
