We are really happy, for the first time we have the opportunity to try a professional machinery for issuing arches. We are eager to try all our theories and ideas in which we believed until now. The first thing we do is to pull a couple of arrows. We remain seriously disappointed. The arrows are 1 inch (2.5cm) away at 20 yards (18 meters) away. This is a new set of arrows, so perfect, right? Persiamo loosened something and check all the screws. Try again to always pull two arrows but the result does not change, affecting exactly the same points. The machine and arrows are ok. What went wrong?
We inspect the arrows in the bottom and can not find something that is not good. Then try to turn the corner and change the orientation of the fins. By doing so we change the orientation of nock and 1/3 and try again to pull it. This time hitting a new point about 1/2 “from the initial hole. Let’s try to turn the nock of another 1/3 “and hits exactly the same hole made by the first arrow.
This intrigues us and we try to work on the rest of the dozen. We are amazed that many arrows do not hit the same spot. Only 5 of the 12 are positioned close to each other, at a distance of a coin. The rest are grouped into a range of a tennis ball.
So let’s start the tedious “light-nock”. We discover that simply turning, we can vary drastically affect the points where the arrows. By many proofs, we can place 11 of the 12 arrows in the diameter of a coin. So happy the excellent results obtained, we omit the last arrow that just did not want to. We are amazed that this new set of arrows was not well selected. Strange, because we had bought the best components and we thought we had a line of arrows at the top.
When we take our set of arrows set up and pull a long distance without the machinery, we are equally amazed at how well group. We are definitely the best shooters of what we thought we were and we had never thought about how it could affect our accuracy a series of arrows not calibrated.
From our first experience, we learn a lot about the arrows. We can develop all our 12 arrows. To date, we have not yet found any dozen arrows that without turning the corners can always hit the same point. We have also found that when the arrows are used, should be checked regularly because it can change. Sometimes it is simply a solvable problem by changing the corners or the uni-bushing; the other by simply turning the corners. Sometimes we simply gave up the arrow and left aside.
We believe that because this tuning occurs, must a result of many things. First of all, various componeti can cause a different flight of the arrows. Secondly, the straightness of the arrows has a great effect as an arrow can deflect with respect to another. The spine also has an important role.
There are two types of plugs, static and dynamic and are not necessarily related to each other. Static, you can check with a verifier of thorns. Instead, the dynamic can be controlled only by pulling the arrow and depends on how the arc is used. If an arrow flexes dynamically slightly more or less than the precendente, it can cause different un’impatto.
Try to verify exactly what went wrong with each arrow is unthinkable and not always feasible. So we arrived at the end point that if an arrow does not work like the other, turn the corners until it does. And if it does, we give the archers to our competitors.
When we turn the corners, we try to always orient the same way the fins (all on, all down or all the left), any position that gives less interference. We did not find that particularly an orientation is better than another. But we have found that giving an orientation equal to all the arrows are important.
With popular rest in the fall, someone said it’s not important to pay attention to the orientation of fins. This is a big mistake that will drastically affect the accuracy. The orientation of the fins has its greatest effect in the dynamic shaft spine. When the flap is inclined affects the rod straightness and as the rod flexes when shooting. Care must be taken to that, so the arrows will go out from the arc all equally. All this talk does not take into account the wind, the wrong position of the point Nocking or a bad throw.
In addition, we are aware that some guidance part
