I think this is the best answer. I usually am more concerned about the at rest, because this is were the arrow exits the bow. Different axle to axles and configurations of bows are going to vary this. You may actually get to a some place in the middle setting.GPtimes2 said:I check for it at rest and full draw just so I know what my bow is doing. It will make it easier to notice any changes that may show problems.
Cmmon, Javi,JAVI said:I’d explain both cam lean and limb tip flex or twist from a technical view and from having tested both the floating and the split yoke on several different style of bows.
But I really don’t want to argue with everybody… So I will just keep my mouth shut and teach my students in private… :wink:
I think that is the correct way to set a static yoke if you do not have access to either a draw board or better yet a Hooter Shooter. I just choose another option which eliminates the necessity of making adjustments and balances the load dynamically.cloquet said:I have a Mathews XT so I checked on the Mathews site to see what they had to say about their bows and idler lean. One of the guys in the research dept. (I think) responded this way. On the XT set the idler wheel so that an arrow with a field point held on the side of the idler slants inward enough to have the point directly under the nocking point. One member (Vince) even posted pictures clearly showing this. The Mathews factory people concurred, explaining that the idea is to have the string coming off the idler perfectly straight at full draw. Since the idler tips because of the cable rollers pulling on it as you draw, setting it so it tips the other way at rest allows it to be square at full draw. The aligning arrow goes on the arrow rest side of the idler. Because of the string silencer on the other side you can't get it on the wrong side. I too would like to have Javi post on this. Come on Javi, what is your take on this.
Yep, same here Javi, I have a Dynatec with cam lean, just want to know how it relly affects the performance of a bow, and how to correct it .Pm is good.Flyguy958 said:OK JAVI, you have my curiosity going. If you don’t want to post your solution in the open forum how about a PM, I’d like to know your opinion.
Will it surffice to say that I use a floating yoke on any bow I personally setup. The reasons are many and based on what I consider irrefutable test results. Tests which have been conducted by me and others I trust, and I do not wish to debate them with diehard static yoke users. I really don’t care if you believe me to be full of crap or not and you won't change my mind anymore than I can your's.

This is the course I have chosen to follow, you may determine differently and I don’t doubt that many of you will. That’s why there are different brands of automobile…. Freedom of choice.
