    For sure, I consider a 1/18" change major, 1/4" is quite drastic. A 1/2" change is an out-and-out overhaul of the set-up of the bow. It's a nice discovery when this stuff falls into place, makes...

    Nothing more important than DL. I notice if mine is just one twist of the bowstring off. Totally changes the sight float. Only thing different about your story is that most people have way too long a...

    You do one side only before you feed it through the lens. I never needed to burn the other end of the fibre when I used a pin or drilled lens. Tape the excess fibre to the housing so it doesn't move.

    Take a lighter or match and very gently heat one end of the fibre. That will create a bit of a ball and then it won't fall through. Same idea as when you replace fibre for an up pin.

    The odds that you have a bad rest are extremely low. Try this:

    Serve cord into cable as shown above or use the clamp they give you. Make sure cable is even with the bottom of the grip.

    When a bow has great nock travel and the shooter has consistent form, you can get bullet holes with arrows that are way weak and way stiff. I found this to be the case with the x-cam shoot through...

    Once you sort out what cam is on the bow, realize that if you are a measured 29" draw, you will likely want a 28.5" Apex-7 stamped cam, because those cams run long.

    I have an Apex 8 and my 28.5"...

    $64,000 question: Is the cam stamped "Apex" or "Apex-7"? If it's stamped "Apex" there's your problem.

    When the Apex 7 came out, some folks were putting Apex 8 cams on it because they said it felt...

    I use 24 strands with .014 Halo.

    I had the same experience with .017 Halo, and if you reduce strand count to compensate it looks a little silly.

    Eyeballing a single cam is difficult because the string track on the cam is offset, while the idler is dead center between the limbs, so the string runs up from the cam to the idler on an angle.
