View Full Version : Cam Lean
I noticed on my 07 Synergy I got in yesterday that at full draw the cams dont rotate in a perfect alignment. At full draw the cams are slightly off set. It's not a major offset, but noticeable. Is this normal or do I possibly have an issue I need to look at? I had a 60# Synergy 2007 model a few weeks ago that I traded and it didnt have any cam lean at all. Just wondering which was normal. thx. Tom

Sounds like it is out of time. Do you have access to a drawboard? one cable is pulling more than the other, which in return causes one to lean. Are the cams in sync? (mirrior image rotation)

Sounds like your cams are out of sync. You'll need a press and draw board to time it. It amounts to twisting or untwisting cables to get the cams back in time. Sometimes a half a twist is all it takes. You could also have someone draw your bow(with arrow in and aimed at target) while you check the cam draw stops to see if they are equal distance or hitting string at the same time at full draw. If not, it needs to be timed. No big deal really.
I dont have press or drawboard. Will get a press soon. The cams do both lean the same. thx.

Paper tune it. All bows with cable slides have cam lean. If the limbs are on spec it's not a problem. Cam lean is especially apparent on binary cam bows because you can't twist one side of a yoke anchored to the limb to compensate.
I set my center shot with an ez eye and then adjust my rest until I get a perfect hole on paper tuning.
