    I don't have pics. Following is how I set up my Agenda 6. I make certain that my bottom cam is perfectly straight. Then, I shoot a bare shaft through paper at 5 to 6 yards to see what kink of tear I'm getting. The tear will tell me if I have the right lean in my top cam. I yoke tune to take out as much of the right/left tear as possible. With a right tear, I add a half twist to the right yoke and take a half out of the left yoke. Reverse for a left tear. Continue until bare shaft is perfect. If perfect tear cannot be achieved, then finish with a slight movement of the rest. I have had a straight top cam, but right now mine has a little pre-lean. This method is attempting to achieve nock travel that is straight down the center of the arrow. So, I don't worry where my spacers are as long as I can get the nock travel that I want. Hope this makes sense.

    ok ill try it out tomorrow when i can see outside =)
    i was shooting decent groups out to 80 yards, however i tried fixed blade to see if it would tune the same and it was about 10" low and 6inch left @ 30yrds so i knew something was outta whack, tried just moving knock with no avail. so i was trying to figure out what else could be throwing it off.
    appreciate your time!

    If your top cable stop is hitting the cable, then I don't worry about the lean. Just my opinion. Sometimes there is a combination of how I hold the riser along with the side pressures of the cables, and the only way to get good nock travel is to have some pre-lean when the bow is at rest.

    Lean at full draw is only an issue if you can't get the nock travel you want. I never check my cam lean at full draw.

    Just wanted to say that I did not shift any of my shims. The bow is as it came from Bear since I did not change my original strings.
