  1. Black Series Timing Marks

    G5 / Prime Archery Discussion
    Can someone confirm if the Black5 has static timing marks on the cams - like the Centergy? I looked the cams over and don’t see any, but my older eyes maybe missing them…. at least I can still see them on my Centergy.

  4. String Cable Tune Chart

    General Archery Discussion
    I got tired of paying people to install strings,peeps,cables and any other things that requires a press. I bought a LCA press last week and was trying to find a chart that tells you when to add twist or take out twist. I remember a few years ago seeing a chart with pictures that explained...

    General Archery Discussion
    Can't seem to get the arrow to clear the rest. Putting it on a BTX, only about 50lbs and 27" draw. I've tried a few different things to no avail. I work in an archery shop and have set up countless bows, but I can't bust this issue...anyone experience this? Any advice?
  6. PSE X-Force GX – One of the easiest to tune PSE bows that many could not tune. WHY?

    General Archery Discussion
    NOTE: For those that don't believe in paper tuning, I'm not going to argue with you. Find a paper tuning thread to make your argument against paper tuning. This thread is for those that want to paper tune their X-Force GX. I've collected a few PSE XF GX's over the years when I found a bow or...

    Martin Archery Discussion
    I only recently received a My 2018 Martin Axon 36. I am having a hard time finding information on timing and tuning. The manual does not show any timing marks or anything. The only information I got was to set everything to center and paper tune, and then advance the cable to 2-3 twists...
  8. Very harsh draw cycle at 31' with Experience and weird noise

    Bowtech Archery Discussion
    I increased my DL to 31' on my Experience last night (apparently I've been collapsing my left shoulder this whole time) and the draw cycle is absolutely brutal. The hump to get into the valley is double what it was before and there is basically no valley. It also feels as if the let off is down...
  9. Infinite Edge Fraying Cables

    Diamond Archery Discussion
    I recently purchased an Infinite Edge from Dick's (I know, I know... first mistake). First it was setup completely wrong for me (mods set on different numbers), and this resulted in fraying of the cable that wraps around my top cam. I went to Fin Feather Fur, and got the timing right and he...

  12. Nuclear Ice Timing Dots. Anyone know what dot to use?

    Diamond Archery Discussion
    I got my son a nuclear ice when he was six. He is now eight and the draw length is way too short. I was going to adjust the draw length and noticed that the cable did not line up with any of the timing dots. It is closest to the '1' dot. The manual does not provide any information on the...
  13. Let off and the wall

    General Archery Discussion
    Hello, I have a problem, maybe. I have a older 2004 Hoyt Razortec which I put some new strings on. They are all in spec or at least very close. I have no experience with the cam and a half systems and am not sure if they should feel the way this one feels. When I draw the bow it hits a solid...

    Hi, I've been out of archery for 10+ years and boy have things changed!!!! I was fortunate enough to try a few bows and liked the Carbon Overdrive and am now setting up my rest and sight. So my question, is what do I need to do to make sure the setup of the bow is optimized to make sure...

    Bow Tuning
    I bought a conquest 4 a few weeks ago and shot about 150 arrows with the settings from the shop . From the beginning, I noticed some serious amount of vibration in the bow as well as mediocre groupings and erratic results (probably linked) :( ... I noticed that the idler wheel was leaning to...
  19. Scott Hinge

    General Archery Discussion
    I have it set so it clicks just as I take my thumb off the thumb post; my usual shot execution timing from there is 2.1-3.5 seconds on shots that feel good Timing can sometimes be as little as 1 second on the "dang that was too quick!" shots, or up to 6 seconds or so on ones where I hang on. I...
  20. RKT Cam Timing

    General Archery Discussion
    Just curious if anyone has had trouble timing the cams on a Vector 35? Not sure if one of my cables or my string isnt the right length or what, but I cant get them in sync. Also, is it better to have one cam just a little ahead of another? Thanks
