**7. Bow Tuning: **An improperly tuned bow will leave you splashing arrows across the target. Shooting an arrow through paper is the quickest method of diagnosing these mechanical ills. Properly launched arrows should punch near-perfect holes in the target. If the paper tears where the arrow strikes it instead of leaving a clean hole, you may have problems with cam timing, the rest, the spine, torque, the nock or other tuning-related troubles. Unless you have your own setup and the know-how to tune bows, it's best to let a pro shop handle this.
