I am having major problems tuning (paper) with a customers Left Handed, Reezen 6.5, 70lb, 29" draw.

Set up is as follows:
Whisker Biscuit
Gold Tip 5575 xt hunters 29"
String Loop
Bow set at 70lbs

The bow is having a major tear X-----O, I can get up and down good, but cannot get rid of tail left tear. Can get it to reduce, but is still 1-1/4" out.

Tried 7595's thinking it was spine problems
Tried rest all the way left (towards riser), tried all the way right, as far as I dared.
Tried 85grain, 100grain and 125grain
Checked cam lean
Cam is in time
Even tried a different whisker biscuit. New style and old style.
Lowered poundage.

Finally called Mathews, they have me sending bow back to them with rest and a couple arrows.

Has anyone else had similar problems with Left Handed Reezens?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

I had the same thing on a dren ld but it was the opposite direction and my fault, I had dropped the bow and the cam hit a rock. I thought it was ok but in the end I believe the cam bent slightly as I replaced the cam and it fixed it.

tuning

looks like the arrow might be too weak, try shooting a heavier spine arrow and see if that does the trick!

the first thing I would do is loose the whisker biscuit rest, and try a Quality archery designs rest. Set the idler lean, top of the Idler slightly away from the riser to move center shot out slightly. set the rest at 11/16 off the riser to start. and start with arrow 1/8 above square. this should get you fairly close. I set up tons of mathews a year and usually can paper tune a bow in less than 8 shots. please pm me with any further questions.

Got bow back from Mathews, Riser was out of spec. They replaced riser and tuned bow, now shoots bullet holes.

Thanks for all the input!!!!
