Default Trouble sighting in



Advertise Here

I have a PSE and Iíve been working to get it sighted in at 10 yards so I can set my next at 20 yards. But Iím always shooting to the right, so I move the sight box to the right... But I now I donít have any more space to move it. Iím about six inches to the right and I have no space left to make adjustments. If I move the sightbox any more, or itíll be completely falling out.

Any ideas?

are you using a release, or fingers, do you have a arrow rest, are you shooting right or left handed, what brand sight.

Isn't it opposite? You might try moving the sight to the left to shoot right.

Right handed with a release. I have an arrow rest. Iíll have to check the brand when I get back home later.

I tried it and looked it up to be sure. If youíre shooting to the right, move the sightbox to the right, and itíll pull the sighting to the left. I just have no more room to move the sightbox without it falling out.

Yeah. The arrow rest should be adjustable L - R also. Its been awhile and I don't have my bow here to look at and remind me.

1. Are you using the correct spined arrows for your bows poundage?
At that short a range, seems more than just sights off.

2. Nothing (fletching, etc.) is contacting the bow?

3. Not familiar with what your calling the sight box. Usually within the sight you make adjustments to the individual pins. Try to move the (sight box) further left and then adjust the pins right.

4. Try shooting at 20 and see how straight the arrows fly and impact the target. Are the nocks up or down, left or right. Not as they are referenced to the target, but are the arrows hitting the target at an odd angle?

Ok, I didnít think of that. Iím not an experienced archer at all, but when the sightbox is good and all, I do really well. So I want to get it straightened out again. Iíll try that tomorrow and see what comes it.

The entire sight housing is what moves left and right, and my pins all move up and down.

Nothing seems to be hitting the bow anywhere. These arrows are definitely good for this bow.

Actually, yes, some of the arrows do appear to be impacting the 10 yard target at an angle that isnít straight on.

you using spruce or carbon fiber arrows, dependeng on the poundage of the bow, to lighter spine arrows, will warp on launch all do to a point, at shorter ranges it is more evident than at distance, arrow has time to true in flight so to speak.
see how the arrow flexes and thats carbonfibre
depending on what rest you have you need to tune it

with out knowing brands, sounds like your rest is kicking the tail on release........
pic of your set up would help as well.

look up a center shot alignment - try checking your box to see if you are even close - archery shop an do it quick an easy - the faster a bow gets there is a lil magic in the setup

Can you shoot to 20 yds, and if so do they straighten out or are they still hitting angled ? Is this with field points or broadheads?

Paper tuning might give you some useful info.
Your rest, string and nock point alignment is critical. On longer shots does the arrow porpoise ie does the fletching makes vertical movements or does it fish tale ie horizontal movements?

Google your PSE model name and add the word problem, unlikely you're the first to encounter the issue.

Sorry I dropped away y’all. Haven’t gotten to go out and try again. A couple family medical issues and then going back to school and stuff. I’m hoping to get back at it and see what the problem is this coming week.

Btw, I have carbon arrows with field tips. I’ll try to get a pic up soon.

If you are missing the target often I recommend judo points. They have spring prongs and keep the arrow from going underground. As a bonus they make a cool sound. They tend to rip up the targets more but save so much time hunting for lost arrows.
