Watched this video the other day. It is excellent. A short synapsis: Basically there are two schools of thought when broadhead tuning. When fieldpoints and broadheads are shot together and are not grouping together, one school of thought says to move the rest in the direction of the field point. So if broadhead hits to the left of your field point, then move rest right.

The other school of thought is to do the opposite, treating the rest movement like you would a paper tear. So if broadhead hits to the left of your field point, then move rest to the left as you would a normal nock right paper tear.

This video tests the theory using a well-tuned bow that is taken out of alignment to show the result.

Trying to get the broadhead to hit with the field points (rather than vice versa) is how I learned to do it.

Me too. It was an interesting test wasn't it? The test confirmed that, but also left room in the equation for the unexplained situation where the opposite remedy works. I appreciated seeing it demonstrated though.

Intellectually though, it would seem that the paper tear method (steer fp to bh) would be the method that would effect the proper change.

Who really nos all this stuff anyway?

Always good to be reminded that when the "usual method" doesn't work, try the opposite. I've had a couple of bows like that.
