    Default Syncing cams ?

    When syncing cams and the dots on the cam aren't the same. How do you determine which cam to adjust ?

    It depends on where your specs are. DL and DW being the ones I would start with.

    Twist the cable on cam you want to open.(at full draw) Use the out side straight cable (in the press) on the cam. once synced then check specs and add or subtract twists evenly.
    I always go the wrong way first and have to go back. Reason I only go a turn at a time.
    No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

    I still do that also Rick, you would think with the amount of bows between us that it wouldn't be that way LOL
    I second both the posts above.
    if my DL and DW are where i need them to be I will "half" the twist to each cable. ( a Dot to me is the BIG dot's, the little Dots are HALF dot's. I also do ALL my twists on the cables from the take-up post.)
    lets say the bow could use more DW or has room for a half pound or pound, then if the top cam is a half Dot behind the bottom cam, i will put a full twist in the bottom cam's take-up cable. this will move the top cam.

    so if your spec's DL&DW are on then you would split the twists, meaning a half twist in one and a half un-twist in the other to even them up.


    (and just so you know Rick, you posting that made me go to the room to confirm what i wanted to write down LMAO!)

    Glad to see I am not the only one who twists wrong the first time.lol I actually amazed myself last bow I did it right the first time in the press.

    Wassaw I use the same method you do. I almost was going to answer this thread earlier today but I typed everything using advance and retard and didn't want to start an argument on which was which.lol

    I have that debate ( advance vs retard) with myself still. chicken or egg. My answer was vague. Thanks for filling in the pertinent info.
