I have a 2011 Maitland Zeus VTR with # 2 mod, and i need help adjusting it for a solid back wall. It currently seems to be timed the way it needs to be, and is paper tuning, but it has a spongy wall, which i hate. Any advice or recommendations on what to do for a solid back wall? Looking to set it around 28".

Thanks in advance!

Hello Mitch:

Build yourself a draw board.

6 foot long piece of 2x6 or 2x8.

At one end, 1/2-inch threaded pipe nipple, say 8-inches long.
Wrap with masking tape or electrical tape.
Install a floor plate for 1/2-inch threaded pipe.
Screw the pipe nipple into the floor plate.

Other end,
simple boat winch.








So,
use the winch to get closer and closer to full draw.


PICTURE of the TOP CAM (VTR), when reaching full draw.




PICTURE of the BOTTOM CAM (VTR), when reaching full draw.





Now,
if the TOP CAM looks like THIS...




BUT,
the BOTTOM CAM looks like THIS...




then,
the
wall will FEEL MUSHY,
cuz...

the control cable (cable with only 2 end loops) is the WRONG length.

Gotta shorten the control cable, in this picture,
where the TOP CAM has full contact with the cable,
but
we have a gap between the draw stop and the cable.


So...

1) BUILD a draw board

2) use your portable bow press to press the bow, to relax the string and cable, and PLAY with twists in the CONTROL CABLE (calble with only 2 end loops).

Hey,

Thanks for the all the info. We actually have put it on the board, and it is hitting the bottom peg perfect, and the top cam has full contact with the mod, without over rotation (cable runs strait down grove of cam at full draw). So it seems to be timed perfectly, but still has a spongy wall...

1) install both draw stops (top and bottom)

2) remove the rubber ring around the draw stops,
so you are drawing against a metal stop with no rubber ring/washer.
