A plunger button will be the optimal for tuning and accuracy.

When setting up a button, you adjust it so the tip of your arrow is a tad to the left of the string when looking down the arrow from the nock to the point. Then you can adjust the button in or out and adjust the spring tension for even better flight and accuracy and it will most likely end up the button depresses into an almost perfect center shot alignment.

I've played that game and it doesn't get any better than that.

Read the entire article, the proper arrow tip segment is further down the page there.

  But does my bow need to be a 1/4" or so past center so the button can stick out and so my arrow is centered??

My bear take down 1971 model.

This is the most simple accurate setup I've ever shot. The flipper rest is magnetic...







My Martin compound converted to and ILF bow. The flipper rest is magnetic.

you can cut the site window down to .700 at the arrow shelf.


I've made some 1/4" past center.
Make your riser blank wider and leave a hump on the right side of the riser for right hand shooters
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means

I here yah Bro...  But this riser is already cut out... 

 I think for this first bow I will go without a plunger...  Maybe my next bow I will cast a riser out of aluminum and go with a plunger...

You been watching that YouTube vid about making a bow out of a coat hanger?   :laughing:

I'm having a De ja vu...    :laughing:

   Laugh now, but when I bring home another Gold, who's gonna be smiling...   :goldtooth:  Yah all said make it heavy...  I am making it is heavy as I can with a lot more weight at the ends of the riser to stabilize it more...  I am definitely a person that's more about function than looks...

   This thing is gonna be bada$$, funky, old western, retro, wild wild west tv show kinda Cool...   :thumbsup: :laughing:

Déjà vu describes that uncanny sensation you've already experienced something, even when you know you never have.

Hope ya have a good one, Rich:)
