    Halon short cables

    Hey guys I am attempting to build a set of cables for a friend's Halon how do I go about getting it too look twisted like the factory ones where the big loops go around the cams? I twisted then served but the loops were not twisted

    Are you talking about the yokes? It really doesn't matter but you can set your posts at 13 1/16 then twist them after they're built. I've tested this a lot but don't generally do it anymore.

    Yes the yokes and thanks for the help. Do you serve before you twist ?

    So I have another question about this how do the factory ones look twisted and I can not get mine to look that way? Maybe I need to make them longer and twist more ? Thanks

    if you look at the comprehensive string building thread in the DIY forum from page 193 to 196 you will see a discussion about Mathews yokes. or try searching that thread for mathews yokes.
    you need to allow 1/4" for twisting each end once layed up and served in the middle. you can take each end and twist between your thumb and index finger or loop the bundles repeatedly over and under each other.
    good luck

    Well there you have it.. You have to love YouTube.. If a picture is worth a thousand words just think how many words a video must be worth.

    There is a you tube video on how to do this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUAo139909Y. This links should give you all of
    the information you need to know.
