Had a problem tuning broad heads where a few arrows were touching the cables, and realized the arm had moved. I adjusted it so there was an 1/8", I figured at least 1/16" most 3/16" so set it to 1/8th. a few arrows come real close to touching. Is it too much to move it out one more notch? When I did the clearance was more like a heavy 1/4" to 5/16ths, is that too much? Like I said, one notch closer and they are a pretty close to touching.

if you are talking about moving your cable slide further out to give you more vane clearance, i would only move it as much as i needed. the reason being, the further away your cable slide moves your cable...the more stress on the limbs which would cause possible cam lean issues.

Just to update, moving the clearance out worked fine. I also found the cams were out of time, so I'll be looking onto that next.
