arrow plate spacing - Willie

how many of you space your arrow plate out to obtain correct arrow windage.i put .097 spacer behind my rest on my pma to get same windage as i do with my longbow. that way it becomes no problem to shoot both ( my longbow isnt center cut and it is a different brand also).what i use so i can be exact is pieces of feeler gauges of different thicknesses. i shoot quick and when i lock in to anchor point the arrow is on the way.i dont look at anything but what i want to hit so that is why i have to space shaft out to hit where i look.

I never thought of doing that, have you paper tuned your PMA?

yes i am a nuts about perfect arrow flight. my pma is not the least bit touchy and i know what you are saying as far as changing spine on a arrow.i do more bare shaft tuning more than paper tuning (up to 40 yards) and can put it in chest area of 3-d deer. once it bare shaft tunes i than refine it if it needs to be with a fletched arrow.long story short i make the bow shoot where i look.my set-up is 62#@28",2315 arrows with 100 grain insert,125 grain point and arrows are 29 1/4" long,and weigh 610 grains. another thing you can do to aluminum arrows to get weight up if you dont want to add nock weight or point weight is to roll paper towels in a tube shape and put inside of shaft,it makes no noise or vibration and you just weigh shaft as you put paper towels in shaft to get the precise weight you want.
