    Shimming cams on a "snake tongue" limb bow can improve tuning, cam angle, a little, but not as much as on quad limb bow. If your rest has moved too far off center shot to tune, then flip-flopping the...

    I have a HSS Alpha harness. Comes with two accessory pouches, linemans belt, tree strap and carbiners. I upgraded to a rope style tree strap though, much easier to use.

    Many choices as to length. My QAD sits well behind the shelf, more like an overdraw, but my arrows are cut so the insert won't clear the back of the shelf. I shoot mechanical and fixed heads this way...

    I had the same issue. For me it was an inconsistent anchor. You may have to do some some adjusting to find a solid, repeatable anchor for yourself.

    If you put some electrical tape on the nock end of your bareshaft to weight it the same as your fletchings you probably wouldn't be seeing that nock a little high.

    My friend has the 32 x 32 and it's 20" thick. I got the 24 x 28 and it's 14" thick.

    Throw on some fixed blade broadheads and shoot from 20 to 50 yds and see what you get. If your poi moves to the right with the fixed blades, that left "fishtail" has to be cured.
