Not sure if Apple makes one or not, but I know there is one out there called the "hooter shooter" I think it's made by spott hogg? Call Tony at Arrowsmith's archery 262-249-9933, he can get any of them for you.

Sooooo... Let me see if I understand this tools importance.

It removes the shooter, who is certainly the biggest variable in tuning, and gives a clearer... picture, if you will of any issues that could be coming from the bow.

I assume that this can be applied like Occam's Razor. What I mean is you basicly strip the bow down, add parts 1 by 1 to eliminate problems in mechanics and equipment, and if all are functioning as they should... the problem/problems has/have to stem from the shooter.

Am I on base here??

you got it Rick, it's like shooting a rifle off a bench. It allows for greater repeatability when testing sights/rests/broadheads and even bow tune. But I don't need one anyway....since I'm like a machine and all anyway!!!

Yes you are half right. If you enjoy shooting bows and you want your equipment to be in the best possible condition . This just takes it one step further than just be an archer who drops his or her bow off at the local archery shop.
