Nice to see your pics of a sweet bow. Hope the shop fixes your problem. Sure do like the Bengal. My 2010 is sweet. I bet the 2012 is sweeter.

Very interesting. How did you realize this was happening...just the string wear? How do they fix the cam lean? I've got the new Bengal also and don't want this to happen. Congrats on the new bow.

twisting the cable in one direction or the other depending on the cam lean/limb twist,and curent specs of the bow.lets say the ATA is a 1/4 inch high on the left side,you would add twists to the cable on the left side to pull it down to math the right side.

I am picky about every weapon I have and I read to much. I check every thing I shot before and after. That is how I realized it. Now to how to fix it. Hutch told me how. Have to twist the string to get the cams back in line. I will not be doing the work. I am unsure of my self there as of right now. First bow in 20+ years so taking it the shop to have it done.

Very nice. I shot a Bengal last week when along with the Cougar. It was very hard to decide which one to get.

Ok, so if that's the case if the ATA is the same on both sides there should not be any cam lean....correct?

Thanks guys for the info.

No. Virtually EVERY bow that uses a cable guard will have some lean to the limbs and cams...this is the nature of the beast with EVERY manufacturer. That is not to say that having slight lean will effect performance or consistency. "Cam Lean" blew up online thanks to websites like ArcheryTalk...it started with Bow-Tech and spread like wildfire. All of a sudden "Cam Lean" was the hottest topic of concern even though it is truly a non-issue. If a guy is looking at his cams while he is shooting he's got bigger problems than "Cam Lean". These days I wouldn't be the least bit hesitant to shoot any manufacturers product no matter how bad the perceived "Cam Lean" is. If you want to talk scary, take a look at PSE's "LIMB BEND"!!! Those limbs look like they might touch tip to tip there is so much bend...you know what?...I'd shoot that bow too.

Motohead,

I have the same bow and my string is also getting serving separation, just a little higher up than yours. I did get both sides to almost the same ATA, I would say less than 1/16" difference by twisting the cables. It is a great shooting bow. I am getting ready to drop the string down to the minus 10 post, as I have been feeling some shoulder pain and don't really want to miss out on shooting due to me doing damage to the shoulder. Actually came on here to see the Bengal review with it set on 60 and saw your post. Have fun with your bow.

Well, finished setting the bow to 60 pounds and what a difference, no shoulder pain and great draw. Need to adjust the peep now, gained 1/2" on the ATA. Next couple of days I will adjust and paper tune again. Backed the limb bolts out and then had to press it just a bit with the bowmaster to get the string loose. Took about 5 minutes to make the switch.
