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.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
