Why do my arrows fly sideways?
Why do my arrows fly sideways?
If you put any sideways pressure on the string with your release aid (it is easy to do by drawing the bow too far so that your string elbow points too far behind you) this will also cause sideways string travel.
What happens if arrows are too lightly or heavily spined?
If your arrows are too lightly or heavily spined for your bow, the “archer’s paradox” movements will be extreme, resulting in poor arrow flight and loss of accuracy. (It’s better to err on the stiff, or too heavily spined, side.) Arrow manufacturers publish selection charts that match bow weights to proper arrow spine.
Why are my arrows kicking to the left?
If your arrow is kicking left, it means your arrow spine is too weak. To fix a left tear, you have some options. You can go up to the next heavier spined arrow or you can use a lighter point. A reduction in point weight will cause your arrow to flex less, effectively making it stiffer.
Why do my arrows go into the target at an angle?
More videos on YouTube If the arrow flies at an angle, something’s out of whack, and accuracy suffers. First check to ensure you’re shooting an arrow with the correct spine for your bow. Arrow “spine” is its stiffness. The higher your bow’s draw weight, the stiffer the arrow’s spine should be.
What causes arrows to fishtail?
Registered. If by fishtailing you mean moving left and right and not up and down, then it could very well be arrow spine. Either too stiff or too weak. Try putting a heavier tip on your arrows or lengthening them.
Can an arrow be too stiff for compound bow?
Yes – you can be too stiff. You’ll notice that they will tend to fly right (RH bow) or left for a LH bow.
Why are my arrows curving?
You Need To Tune Your Bow If it is not the wind causing your arrows to drift, it could be that your bow needs tuning. If all the parts of the bow are not properly aligned, your arrow will not shoot straight. There seem to be as many ways to tune a bow as there are archers.

Why does my arrow fishtail?
If you are not releasing clean, and following through the same each time, you will get arrows that appear to fishtail their way to the target…
Why is arrow tailing left?
Arrows go left or right due to the wind, wrong alignment of an arrow, torquing, and canting bow. If your arrows go left each time you shoot, most likely, this is the problem with arrow drawing, positioning, and release.
Should I shoot 340 or 400 arrows?
400’s will be fine with 100 grain or 125 grain heads…if you want a heavier arrow than use some point weights and go to a 340 spine.
How many grains is a 400 spine arrow?
That’s why Gold Tip recommends a 400 spine for a 27-inch arrow with a 100-grain point shot from a 60-pound bow, but also recommends a 340-spine arrow if its length and draw weight stay the same, but its point weighs 150 grains.
