View Full Version : My New Dead Eye

Hi every one

I just bought a Dead Eye and realized my first shots last week.


I have to change at least the Fuse whisker rest with a more suitable one.


The feeling was great and I did not observed hand shake that many people warned.

But got a question. Although I checked the site, I could not found the answer. The issue is the throttle cam is not at the axis or center of bottom limb. It is located at the left side. That means the string is not totally vertical when I pull it. I wonder how much the shot is affected due to that string angle. I will be really appreciated if someone can answer or direct me to the answer.

I had a Deadeye with the same issue but it shot well and tuned easy. I actually regret selling it and will prolly pick one up from Divk's since they're on sale. I would tune it and see how it shoots. If you're bow tunes well and you're grouping well that it may be ok. If you can't get it to tune and group properly, take it to a pro shop. For tuning, try this:

The fella who wrote this gets lots of questions about tuning and form and everything else.
