    centre shot finder

    This could go in the hints and tips, but I need a bit of help with it first.The idea may be flawed. Comments would be welcome, before I get in a mess.
    Place a clothes peg on the cable guard, at the end, with the string resting against it. The peg can be marked on either side of the string, so the string fits between the marks. When the bow is drawn, the string can be lined up between those marks, like eyeing up the centre of a recurve limbs. This indicates the string path and centre shot will be on that line. Adjust the arrow rest until it is on that line too.

    Yep, I don't see why that wouldn't work.

    Much cheaper than a laser too

    Just to be Devils Advocat, what if the cable guard is coming out of the riser at an angle? (i.e. the drilling into the riser is not staight but angled to move the cable guard at a slight angle out from the centre line of the bow.)

    I'm not saying they are, just a what if.

    How about the manufacturers actually giving all us archers a measurement out from the riser for the centreshot. That'd solve all our problems!

    One of the problems of finding your centreshot is that it varies slightly from person to person depending on how much torque they apply with their hand while aiming.
    Geoffs suggestion is a quick way to find a good starting point. I believe that some manufacturers do suggest a distance measured from the berger hole, but even then it's a starting point only, though many may find they don't need to change it.
