Skylar, I need advise.  I set mine up Saturday and shot Sunday and monday and then again last night.  I can't seem to get as precise groups as I was getting with pins!?!?!? Using the very tip for aiming its still not consistantly what I'm use to.  Any advise?

Graham how do you have it set up?
 
When you mount it, you need to mount the L bracket as low as you can, but double check your fletching to make sure that, it will clear when you fire your arrow. Twist the yardage wheel all the way down to 80 and then turn your arrow around backwards to see if the fletching clears.
 
The other thing is, you need to know your IBO speed so you can correctly adjust the dial.
You know on the left side of the yardage wheel, the long numbered lever?
Mine is set on 8 because mine throws about 317 Fps.
 
I would take it in and have it chronographed so you know exactly how fast your arrows are flying.
Depending on how fast your arrow flies, I would try to find your windage and elevation at 10 yards then move back.
 
I have found the key to the Accu-pin is knowing your arrow speed.

I did chrono my arrows and set it accordingly.  Its not the dial thats not working, its the general inconsitancy in groups.  I was able to keep a much tighter group with pins vs the "triangle" even using the point.

Right now I'm sticking at 20, if its not grouping there right no point in moving further out yet.

NO pictures yet.  I'm averaging about a 2" group now.  I was at about a 1" or less Saturday morning prior to the swap

I wonder if Brandon has any ideas?
I'm not sure why your groups would change, I know that most of it is held or hold over, your POI should not change on the accu-pin if your putting it in the same spot everytime.
 
Are you using blazers?

Its still new to you. Shoot it more and you will get the hang of it. I'm betting you were the same way with the pin's. Your eyes,mind,arms,aim point are still trying to figure out whats new in the muscle memory of the new site. Sound funny but it happens. Also don't shot for groups!!! have you ever shot a group on a live animal? find spot and hit those spots. Groups are a bad thing in archery, they will make you do thing in your shot form you normaly wouldn't do and you don't know your doing it.
 
Take 5 2 liter coke bottle tops. tape,glue them on the target in different spot. start @ 20yards. shoot one, then move back to 30 , shoot one more, then 35 shot another, then 40 and 45. see if the arrow is missing to the same side or going all over the place. That will tell you if its something you ned to work on or if something needs to be ajusted.

Sure, Just shoot one at a time and take your time. It will also keep you from viewing two targets ( the X and the other arrow) on your shot and will let you hone on one. Kinda keep your field of view in check.

There's another technique that you can do for your rest, if you have a drop away.
 
If you take a piece of paper and draw a circle in the center.
Then take a string and weigh it down, with a wrench or something.
 
Then walk about three yards away and try to hit the small dot.
If's it's left, adjust your rest to the left.
If it's right, adjust your rest, to the right.

yeah simple paper tuning is all that is. you don't need a circle drawn. Just see what way the ass of the arrow is flying and move the rest that way. you should have a hole with 3 little tears. but don't put to much into it. You can have a prefect paper hole and still not be tuned right.

Right Brandon, but the dot is for me.
I put my point on the dot for reference.
Aiming for the same place everytime.
Just trying to keep it simple.
