    Not sure where you are coming from, but I suspect I was tuning all sorts of archery hardware before you were out of diapers.

    Yes, I do use yoke tuning as a polishing step. On all of my own bows,...

    Something to consider:

    Cam lean gets a lot of press and stress on AT. Some feel it's total BS. (Not I BTW). Some shooters /tuners feel lean at full draw to be the key, others not.
