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.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
