I felt my arrow flight could be better, and invested in an adjustable plunger. So far I haven't seen differences in arrow flight with moving the outer tip in and out. Here is my question- Should the arrow center line be inline with the bow limb center line, or should be arrow be a little left of bow limb center line (right handed shooter)? I believe the arrow should be a little left of center, creating a little paradox. If you have experience in adjusting the plunger and care to share I appreciate it.

Bow at brace height, nock your arrow then visually line up the string with the center line of the bow. In this position, the right side of the arrow point should appear to be to the left of the string. This is for a right handed bow. You'll need to find a way to hold the bow (lean it against something) so you can "eyeball" the alignment and see what the arrow point relation to the string is.

Eyeball it as well as you can then take the spring out and replace it with a piece of match so that the plunger can not move. From this point you need to shoot arrows. (3 at a time) Chase the arrows by moving the plunger in or out. Once you are satifided that you are close to in line with were the arrows are hitting; remove the match and replace it with one of the springs that came with the plunger. At this point you are starting the fine tuning by making the the plunger stiffer you make the arrow act stiffer by making the plunger softer you make the arrow weaker.
