Cycle, it took me a long time of playing with the bow to get it set just right, but once I did, it was a real shooter. The link Barry posted is the one I followed. Basically, it's just a matter of twisting the cables up on the cams in a certain way to get the most out of the cam system. I did notice however, that on my FC400, the thing shoots best when it's not twisted up as much as my old '09 FC. There's a significant cable-to-post gap difference between my new FC and how my old one was. Getting virtually the same speed out of this new FC as I did the old one too. Both my Onzas have a smaller gap than the FC400. Must just be in the geometry of how everything works together. It's all about playing around, and taking the time to adjust, test, and readjust the cam timing.

Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.
Well I see you guys have had no trouble with forearm slap with lower than 7 in brace. To be honest I have not shot a lot of bows under that mark. I know a shorter brace height is not as smooth of a draw as a longer brace height you can't argue with that one. I do realize you can get away with a lighter poundage with shorter brace heights. Well if I ever get a short brace bow that shoots harder id look into a Firecate one day.
