Arrow Grouping

If your arrows are grouping either left or right of the target, it does not automatically mean that your arrows are of the wrong spine. Itis a possibility that your arrows areout of spine but there are so many other reasons for this to happen. Some examples are:

  • Arrows hitting arrow rest
  • Badly tuned pressure button
  • Inconsistent release
  • Bow not tuned

If your arrows are consistentlyleft or right of the target, seek advice.If it is one or two arrows that are off target then it is possibly something that you are doing.
