I use bare shaft tuning but I don't cut shafts to tune. I shoot several diffent bows and want the same lenght arrow out of each. I just go up or down in point weight. If I end up between point weights I can tweek brace ht or side plate thickness. With all the different BH and adapters available I can always find a match.

@ khardrunner ok thanks clarifying the whole left/right deal. I don't know how many times I've read about tuning and get confused by the whole if your a lefty do the opposite.
I'm actually right handed but shoot rifle/bow with the left hand cause im left eye dominant.
@ KentuckyJeff honestly I haven't tried shooting a group in a while. I usually take only three arrows out with me and shoot each arrow at a varying unkNown distance at different angles.
@ motherlode I went out to the range with the arrows I shoot my compound with except I had 240gr tip with regular HIT ALUMINUM inserts with 400 Beman MFXs. Anywho I just wanted to see how they would shoot through paper. Well I got a 2 to 3 inch tear left. So after reading what khardrunner said this would be a stiff arrow. So for the heck of it I wanted to see if breaking my current anchor point and drawing further would and putting more power behind the arrow would lessen the tear and it did. It ended up being about .5 to 1 inch mixed with some bullet holes. So I went out side to try this new anchor point It turned out I was hitting way right and unable to hold a group.. So I ended my experimentation and went back to shooting with the fletch at the tip of my nose and everything was spot on again.
But after all the input and khardrunner breaking it down to laymans terms I know what needs to be done and how to do it as far as tuning goes.
Does anyone know if the Martin Mamba accepts a FastFlight string? It came with a Flemish twist, so I'm not really sure what strings this bow will accept.
