View Full Version : Cable twist
03-03-2010, 06:50 AM
Not sure if I should have started a new thread for this or not, but anyways... I took the advise I received on here, and twisted my cables to get to the ATA length I should be. It took 12 twists of each cable to get to the 32 1/4 ATA I should have. Is this excessive? After doing this, I noticed that both cams stayed in good timing, but the gap between the wrapped cables is a little bigger (1/16th or so) on the bottom cam. Should I just give it another twist or two? I've also noticed a slight fraying of the cable serving (fuzzing) coming off each cam now. Anything I should be worried about? Pretty new to this kind of bow tuning, so your patience is appreciated. Thanks!
What did yor BH become once you got ATA into spec? remember you had a full 1/2 to take up to get the right ATA so no i dont think its exsessive IMO.

I don't think it is excessive. I had to put about the same number of twists in mine. Just make sure you check all the specs (draw weight, BH, etc).

just remember, the tighter you twist your cables, the looser your servings become

I ended up with 15 twists in the lower cable, and 13 in the upper. That has the cams timing right, but still a little (1/16th or so) off with the cable gap. ATA and BH are both right on. 32 1/4 and 7 respectively. Shot it through the chrony just now. 66# draw, 363 gr. arrow, 28 in draw, 309.98 fps. WHAT A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT! Only one other thing I have to ask: As loose as the cable serving is now, should I try to twist the serving to tighten it up, or what should I do? Thanks again guys!
