Hello,

I know about cams timing, creep tune, etc, but...

Is 1/2 twist in the cable the tuning limit or it can be finer?

Thanks,

To me if you need anything finer than a 1/2 twist on ANY bow , that bow is highly unstable for shooting. Not sure how you would ever get anything finer than a half twist :confused:

One of Barnsdale bows have a device for very fine adjustments.
In a split limb bow one can make fine adjusts by twisting the split part of the cable/yoke.

The question (more out of curiosity) is - what about other bows?

Any 2 cam bow with a hard yoke can be fine tuned by twisting the yoke, instead of the main cable.
The amount that 1/2 twist will change things all just depends on how many twists are already in the cables......if there are alot, it will move the rotation alot, if there are only a few, the movement with be very slight.
Very fine cam timing can also be acheived on a 2 cam by changing the tiller slightly.

Aha, that's a nice one.

spott hogg makes a set of adjusters that are awesome. they go on the end of the axle and then you hook the cables to them and adjust. very easy to use.
