SHould my site be perfectly inline with my arrow? It is a little to the left of the arrow and hitting X at 20-50 yards. I am having other tuning issues I will start in another thread since it is about broadheads:(

Thanks

no it shouldn't... any bow with a cable guard will torque the bow while at full draw.

i think they almost always end up a little to the left, for a right handed shooter. i know in my bows the pin is a bit to the left of the arrow, if seen from the shooters position.

good luck!!

If your bow has cams and a cable guard, the statement above should NOT be the case. My bow has no cams or cable guard, and the sight pin is still right on the left edge of the string. The bow is completely torqueless other than what my hand applies to the grip.

The Nitrous-X cam system does not use a cable guard. It is a true center shot, zero torque, zero cam lean, kick-azz cam system.:RockOn:

Actually I just got my first Martin yesterday! It is a sweet cam system.

I'll stick with my Monster Bows Phoenix. It's a kick-azz NO-cam system. :wink:

All joking aside, I am glad to see more companies moving away from cables guards. I think its a move in the right direction for sure.

That's how I set mine. Center shot the arrow, center shot the pins. If they don't match up I'm torquing.

it is just a starting point ...you set it up nice and sharp pin ,arrow, and rest.
but then you add your self tu the equation???? you have to move thing and finish with your pin off .. the key is good clearance , nice flight, no marks on the rest and vens. and if your hitting the X at short and mid distance i will say it looks good . move on with your setup.

Its not the cable guard

Its normal but not necessarily right. Its caused by torgue from your hand. If you have a perfect grip, you shoulf be able to line up the pins with the arrow. If you were a lefty than you should have the opposite thing happening. Im sure lots will disagree with this but some people hate to admit they might not have perfect form....flame away.:D

not gonna flame ya... but you are wrong... :fencing: some degree torque is induced by the cable guard, although you right on one thing... hand torque can worsen this effect

LOL...now that I have thougt about it some more...it is impossible to have a cable guard and not get some torgue from it so I will agree there. I just wonder is varying setups make it more or less noticeable?

Try a Nitrous-X shoot through and prove it to yourself.
I haven't done it but you could even switch from shoot through to cable guard and make no other changes, you would see how much the cable guard torque really does affect things.

Yeah, almost as bad as the Hoosiers--- put up a big clock but you have to drive across the river to see what time it is:mg: :teeth: :D
