    Hi!

    First of all :welcome: to the forum
    And good ?
    It could be many things, i would suggest if you have 1 near u take it to a pro shop.
    if not then your gonna have to dig in to your:form,u might have changed something,your rest,might have moved,your nocking point,might not be set right.
    I have archers comeing over with this same problem to find out that after i set there bow up they desided they wanted to shoot a little faster so they cranked there limbs 1 turn throwing there nocking point off.
    With that said, it could be alot of things causeing it!
    Hope this helps and the more information u can give the more we can dig into your problem if it was just an arrow change the spine might be to heavy or light.
    Thanks for your ?
    keepem comeing!:biggrin1:

    I would have to go with under splined if you are shooting over 64#. I believe that at the max dw for those are

    55# @ 30"
    65# @ 29"
    70# @ 28"

    This also depends on if you are shooting 100gr or 85gr tips. just check to make sure that you are over the grain per inch (GPI) for your bow.

    and once again

    the spine of an arrow is the amount it will bend and still acurately and safely be fired from a bow. You did not mention how long your arrows are can you measure one and let us know how long it is? Another thing that will have a impact on spine is the type of cam you are shooting on your bow for example you can get away with a little less spine on a round wheel bow than you can with a harsh radical cam...:amen:

    What kind of bow?
    What arrow length?
    What point weight?
    What kind of rest?

    Has your bow ever been "tuned"? This is moving the rest and/or nocking point to achieve level arrow flight. However this is much easier to accomplish if your arrows are properly spined. Oh yeah, Welcome to the site.

    Just thought of something else. If your arrows are under spined, you could lower your draw weight to help stiffen the spine a little. Sometimes this is a quick fix if you don't want to change arrows.

    i'm shooting a '07 tomcat, 30"arrows,whisker bisquit,100gr.points. Ididnt notice the problem until i cranked up to 65#. i have not added any string silencers or anything but old setting was 55# and the same arrows where shooting straight as ever,but through the chrono max was 248.Since i've got the smooth cam, I think I outsmarted myself by just cranking limbs to gain a stupid number.i would like to possibly switch to a different arrow shaft&vane,but i am more concerned with fixing the problem at hand

    yep

    I think you just answered the ?
    And can solve the problem.
    1:you cranked your bow up
    2:didnt move the rest
    3:noticed the wobble after cranking the bow up
    Your probably getting Up-Down porposing,,nocking point is to high or low!:rockon:
    Set it and your problem is solved.
    If not we will talk about arrows and spine.
    Dont worry about that now you can shoot a heavy spin or light spine if your nock is set right. set it!:biggrin1:

    Also check front of center. around 7% is best IMO
    If it is tail heavy then it could cause it to.

    Let us know how the tuning goes. Should help if not eliminate the bad flight.
