Sightmark Excel Spreadsheet

Here are two Excel spreadsheets developed by Simon Hughes, one of our compound archers. Click here for preview. They are designed to help fine tune sight marks.

Sight marks that go up: archery1.xls (21Kb)
Sight marks that go down: archery2.xls (21Kb)

Instructions for use:

Enter your sight marks in the yellow boxes provided in the top left hand corner. The spreadsheet will automatically calculate the curve fit and the equation. Enter the equation numbers into the yellow boxes above the chart. Your sight marks will now be shown to the left of the chart. Print it out and keep it for when you shoot.

Hint: get all your sight marks on ONE day. Different days make your arrows shoot higher or lower depending on the weather, etc.
