Default Hoyt SatoriTuning Input wanted

So I just am starting to get into ILF. Had a small Morrison riser that I sold and always stuck with my Blackwidow. Unfortunately the grip wasn’t working anymore for me cause of a surgery I had so I decided to get a Satori with a much better grip to me. I really like the idea of being able to swap limbs out and tinker around.

My question is does the adjustable side plate that comes with the Satori okay to use? I’ve read mixed reviews about the quality of it. I was just thinking of ordering a Push Acutune but will hold off for a little while if the stock plate works. Any other advice would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

That sideplate works fine. With the shims you'll have a wide range of tuning options. I would suggest not trying to tighten it much. It's plastic and you can strip the threads easily.

I use and ajustable sideplate on my 3D bows to shoot in traditional classes. I fashion a shef-bump from wood. It costs about a dollar.


Edit: don't know how I loaded that picture of the Satori... sorry.

Sorry. I guess I grabbed the wrong picture in the previous post.

Casto's method is the ticket. I stole his idea and do the same on my Satori. You can make your own set screw if manufactured ones are not available , just hacksaw the end off of an appropriate bolt and cut a groove in the cut end

I use the side plate and it works just fine. As mentioned careful not to strip that stupid little plastic screw, I had to order a new one the first week.

The Satori is my next bow. I plan on trying out the sideplate however, the accutune is a bullet proof solution. I have one on each of my samicks and will probably buy another. While some may consider it pricey, I look at the whole picture. With a quiver full of arrows it’s nearly a $1000 bow so what’s another $50. I can’t imagine anyone would be disappointed in the accutune.

I took the side plate and mounted to the end of the accutune. It worked great. Sold that bow, and just ordered another riser. (I had some sellers remorse) I am planning to run a springy on the end of an accutune for this one.

That accutune side plate doesn't look like it's got a radiused surface. How does it work any better than just sticking a furniture pad on the riser?

The accuntune is adjustable. It’s a nice feature. I run a little dime sized piece of bear hair rest on mine as a cushion. I have tried furniture pads in the past and loads of other stick on rests and other materials. I didn’t run out and by the Accuntune immediately. I actually thought it was ridiculously priced when I first saw it. Truthfully, after I tried one I really liked it alot.

I’m planning on getting the accutune I really like the idea of it. For whatever reason ILF never appealed to me up until now. But I can say this Satori is the best shooting bow I ever shot. The mass / weight of the riser just makes it such a nice feeling bow especially with a quiver on.

I you want to go away from the side plates, I have used pressure buttons and even this cheap-o. I tried the Satori riser but had trouble with the side plates breaking. May have been a bad one. It was used when I got the bow.

I have used these as an adjustable strike plate by cutting of the arrow shelf/rest end and just using the nylon threaded rod.

Bill, I like the plastic threaded studs, too.
