    Default cable guard question

    is there any rime or reason on how a off set cable guard is set, i got the book out and it dose not clearing explain, should the offset be cantered up [ie 12/ 3 oclock] or 3/ to 600 oclock . mine has always been at lets say 330, but at a site i was at today, it clearly states it should be cantered up on a single cam bow , whats every ones opinion please,

    I set mine so that my fletching just clears the cables. I don't worry about clocking it.

    Depends if it is right handed or left handed. 4 o'clock or 8 o'clock once set. Nock an arrow then bring it within an 1/8 to 1/4" of the vane. That will take off as much pressure off the cam and idler wheel.

    Not enough to make a difference. But it depends on how far you move it. If you move it a little you would be okay. A lot, would change lateral torque and change nock and peep height.
