Picked up a Faktor 34 on clearance at Lancaster's for $200 off , could not pass it up considering how much I like the F34 I already have. Well I called Park-N-Sons and ordered up some new rigging for it. Installed them, got the weight and cam timing/lean where I wanted, when those where dialed in I took a peek at the DL, it was right on. Installed a Hoyt QAD, put centershot so middle of launcher was in the middle of the riser "trough" and set it on the drawboard so it was fully up 1" before the stops hit. Headed to the paper rack, 1/4" left tear, 1/2 twist in left side yoke, 1/2 out right side, re-check timing OK, shoot thru the paper, bullet hole, we are done. Into the case it goes, ready for next bow season.

So a bullet hole in paper means the bow is tuned? You don't own a pro shop by any chance?
When they shoot a bullet hole they shoot great for me, I do not obsess over it. Get a bullet hole go out and kill stuff, it could be X's, foam, or deer.

I eyeballed the lean to start, also adjusted the lower cam spacers before I started :), I am not new to this game :) ;)

Congrats on another great bow. My cs30 was pretty much the same Didn't mess with lean or anything just shot a bullet hole and done. Of course after I took off the wb and put on a code red that is.

Thats all I do working out great for me

Same here. Love it when its easy

I like your way of thinking...The KISS method ...Works for me too...
I often think people over complicate things.

I wish it were that simple for me. i'm either the worst shooter or have the worlds hardest bows in the world to tune and it takes me hours. i'm leaning toward option 1
