Arrow jumping while coming to full draw.

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I'm hoping that someone can tell me why my arrow is jumping in the rest while coming to full draw? When it bounces, it makes a noise an that is no good. Last year I put on moleskin to help deaden the noise and maybe I should put a little on again or, i was thinking of dropping my poundage down. I did not notice it much shooting standing up but since going to my blind I have notice it more, while sitting on a chair. Thanks.

What type of rest do you have? and are you shooting with fingers or a release?

I've had that happen when my drop away launcher grabs the arrow out of the arrow holder on the shelf. If the arrow holder is too tight in holding the arrow when the arm picks up the arrow and lifts it out of the holder the arrow jumps. Simple fix if this is the case.

To me it sounds like the poundage is turned up to much. If you turn it down a little you should be able to come to full draw smooth with no bouncing.

If I had to guess, it sounds to me like string pinch.. Are you shooting a release, and a D loop?.. You may need to serve in 2 small spacer knots to make sure it isn't pinching.. its common with short ATA bows.

Sorry guys, I should have listed what I was using!

Yes, I shoot with a release and a D loop.

My rest is your standard v from NAP. products

I shoot a MQ1 Mathews and its only set at 62 which has never been a problem. Do I have to take it in or can I fix it at home?

Thanks Guys.

Since you live in Waconia I would drive down the street to Cabin Fever and have them check it out.

    • Put an L behind his name with the exact same contributions and Carlos would be silent.
    • I understand everything you say.  I'm just sorry you think anything you post is intelligent or has an original thought.  But hey if you have the need to feel important do I have a job for you.
    • I put those in there so that you COULD understand what I was saying and you confirmed it works. Sometimes we just have to try harder to communicate at a level you are comfortable with. 
    • Del, i do believe the chiropractic approach to healing an injury is significantly better then painkillers and muscle relaxers. Which may create the need to visit MD again to get something to loosen the stools from the pain meds. He's now billed for multiple office visits and services, you know, running a business. Stop being so naive.
    • I'm thinking the same thing.  
    • He is so outside that he only managed like 18 million in contributions in 24 hours from the biggest names in the political and financial elite but yet you think he is an outsider. Jets owner, Hollywood producer, Wall Street titans helped drive Trump’s $18M day http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/29/jets-owner-hollywood-producer-wall-street-titans-helped-drive-trump-s-18m-day.html Looks like a real outsider to me lol.
    • I would say 1x4 is over kill for furring strips aside from where bunks and cabinets are located and 1x1 is under sized for the studs.  Personally I would run 1x2 to have enough room for insulation.  Couple bucks extra up front. It saves you from hearing your furnace as often and spending as much down the road on propane.  
    • I use 1x4's as furring strips, which will give me another 3/4".  Then having it spray foamed. My last house I used rigid foam boards for insulation in the walls and ceiling.  I've never had anything spray foamed before, so if that's not enough let me know what you think.
    • Sounds like just another party hack blaming others for the fact they are fielding a terrible candidate instead of just owning up to the fact.
    • Did you even read what I said?
