    to tape or not to tape?

    Hi folks, sorry I know these potatoes have been boiled already - but I would welcome your views... (and sorry it's long) For donkey's years I tuned bare-shaft vs fletched without tape to replicate vane-weight - it worked well enough. But more recently there is advice to add tape to simulate...

    scaling down a target face size

The vertatune system...
