You are referencing the vertical aspect, but what bout the horizontal aspect? Do aim up and down of the left blade of the arrow?

I usually aim down the centerline of the arrow. Although out past 30m you will also need to adjust for wind.

So aim the left notch a bit right of what you`re trying to hit?

What is the "left notch"?

The arrow is a cylinder. The centerline of the cylinder is the horizontal alignment.
There is a shadow on the right side of the arrow. The edge of that shadow is very close to center.

sorry, I mean the right notch :oops: I don't believe those are shadows, but the blade of the arrow. The thing the 30 arrow is pointing at. Do you aim that a tad right of what you are shooting?

Spend some time at the range, and you will figure it out.

Ah, ok. The "notch" you refer to is the blade.

What I was referring to is the shaft of the arrow. The right half is shadowed / darker.

Ah, thankyou very much. I will be very sure to put this guide to use. it almost appears as if a 30m shot could be a tad easier. There is never too much to learn
