Bare Shaft Tuning

Gold Tip recommends bare shaft tuning for any setup shot with a finger release. In order to use this method you will need two fletched arrows and two bare shafts. Follow the illustrations below to fine tune your setup.

This diagram depicts optimal tuning for the bare shaft tuning method. Bare shafts and fletched arrows should have very similar impact points.

Optimal Tuning
Stiff Arrow
Possible Corrections:
  • Use a longer shaft
  • Use a lighter spined shaft
  • Add weight to the insert using Gold Tip weight system, or by adding a heavier weight point
