For example , Lo get the cams say on a gt500 to be able to rotate even more at the end of the draw cycle , would you take twists out of the cables and add twists to the string or vice versa ..
    put twist into the cable attaching to the bottom of the cam to advance the cam in a counterclockwise direction.
    ​This would move the timing hole shown on bottom of this cam away from the limb

    Yep those are the specs I got from Ben and Dusty. You are on the right track brother. I would think you just need the right shims and get your harness to the right length and you'll be there.

    Awesome. Thanks. Just took my harness off, so now to find shims and measure string and cables.

    There was a thread recently about how people measured there strings under tension. I searched but couldnt find it. Anybody know the thread im talking about?

    Vice Versa! Shorter cables and or longer string = longer DL which is more rotation. shorter cables and shorten the string will rotate the timing holes and keep weight and length closer But shorten the ATA.
    No ifs and or buts Just maybee.
