I have heard incredible reviews about Shane (ontarget7) up in Windsor, CO, and his tuning prowess. He takes the time to do just about every method of tuning possible..paper, unfletched arrow, walk back, and broadhead tunings. Many who have used him have picked up quite a bit of speed.


I like my new bow a lot and like the shop that sold it to me...but they don't have the time to do a full, comprehensive tuning. I am going to get Shane to super tune my new bow. I'll let you all know how it goes.

I've exchanged several conversations with him regarding tuning, arrow selection etc. he is a very intelligent guy that is willing to go the extra mile for people. He cares about archery and being the best he can at it I will tell you that. I wouldn't be afraid to let him tune my bow.

Yeah, he has quite the reputation on Archery Talk. People rave about his help.

Maybe we could get together and shoot a little. I have only been in Colorado about 8 month now. Actually work in Boulder for the most part. Even did a small job in your neck of the woods in Erie.

Just got back from taking my bow to Shane (Ontarget7) and I am so glad I did. He is a great guy. Super knowledgeable and personable and takes a lot of time to tune each bow as he would his own. I highly recommend his expert services.

Thanks again John for the trip you made. It was nice talking with you and will keep you posted on the progress of your bow being tuned.

This fires me up!!! My bow is looking good and shooting fast! I never thought I would shoot a smooth drawing 26.5" dl bow at 300 fps! Thanks for your great work, Shane. Big props to Shane! If you are not getting this kind of speed from your Spyder, or other bows for that matter, do yourself a favor and consider sending it to Shane. He is a tuning wizard!

I will say bro, yours is officially the fastest one so far. They are generally running 339-342 IBO but you are steady in the 343-345 range.

Thanks again and look forward to you picking this sweet shooter up
Shane

Just picked up my bow from Shane (Ontarget7). Talk about a new bow! The strings and cables look amazing and the bow feels completely different. The draw feels about 10# lighter, and the back wall is rock solid, and the valley is perfect, and almost no hand shock. Bare shaft is hitting exactly with my field points at 20 yards. Taking my bow to Shane was one of the best moves ever!
