    tiller adjustment on a compound

    people usually mess around with tiller as a result of not acheiving the performance/scores they think they should be getting.
    having looked at every other adjustment on their bow, tiller is the last thing to try.
    they forget the old addage that archery is 95% archer and 5% equipment, but they always insist on trying to improve the 5%.
    sad, but unfortunately true.
    do top compounders mess with tiller?
    if they do (which I doubt) they would be the only ones to be able to tell any difference positive or negative.
    it is just human nature I suppose.

    Howi, I think you are right.
    One of the problems is that most of us, and more especially new archers, don't know for sure how much or how little the bow adjustments make to the scores. Sometimes,after a tiny tweak, we get a big improvement and think the tweak was responsible, and we really want to believe it is correct. I know that a 5% improvement is worth having so try the tweaks. That is easier and quicker than working on form. I can work on form later anyway.
    Knowing that form is far more important, doesn't stop me tinkering with settings to try for some free extra points. By the time I was old enough to know better, I was too old to get better !

    A lot depends on the bow you have. As I have already said the Oneida requires tiller adjustment due to the riser mounted cams, Single cam bows are also sensitive to tiller adjustment. Because the single cam bow operates by effectively shortening the cable and string the forces are applied to the riser the same way as in a recurve bow.

    I found this out when I was setting up a 'Mathews Rival Pro'. I was getting a large tail high tear with the nocking point set 2mm high ( centre of the arrow 2mm above the centre of the launcher mounting hole) I measured the tiller using dental floss around the axles and limb pocket to floss.( small idler on that bow) set the tiller to zero and the tail high tear was gone
    just point,pull & click the mouse button
