    Default Nemesis cam timing

    I have a 2010 Alien Nemesis and am having sound issues. First of all I was in a hurry and put a cheap string on it (my fault). As the string stretches I have it twisted to try to keep in in spec (34" ATA). This last time I found something odd. When I measured my ATA I got 34 1/16" (acceptable for now). When I turned the bow over and measured again (on a hunch) I got 34 3/16" (unacceptable). I remeasured several times and still get 1/8" difference in ATA from one side of the bow to the other. Is this normal? If not what can cause this?

    Thanks!

    Its completely normal to have a small amount of ATA difference from one side to another on any bow with a cable guard. Its just one of the effects of pulling the cables off to one side to get arrow clearance.

    So should I tune to 33 15/16" on one side and 34 1/16" on the other? I am going to a better string after the end of the season but for now I would just like to quiet it down.

    Isn't your bow a Hybrix cam bow? If so there is no way to change cam lean/limb twist. Maybe an offset cable guide rod would help a little but you are very limited to what you can do with a Hybrix cam bow.

    are your cams in time with each other and are the cables routed correctly?

    Cams seem to be perfectly in time, cables routed correctly and it laser-tuned on the money. Other than being loud it shoots like a dream. I am getting 285 fps at 27" DL set at 68 lbs shooting 26.5" Ted Nugent Goldtips.

    That is kind of what I was thinking. The pockets look good, pads seem even. I am going to check my measurements again tonight since I don't remember which side was long. I might be able to put an offset cable guide rod on and "torque" it a little more (if that is the long side).

    How close to the string is your STS? Most guys say about a credit card away. Could add some cat whiskers, which kills most all string vibrations, and maybe put some limb savers on the limbs. Ought to quiet her down.

    I keep my string about 1/16" away from my STS (just enough to see daylight). I have limbsavers on it but have not tried anything on the string yet. It doesn't really sound like string vibration (more of a sharp "thump") but I am more than willing to try some whiskers or monkeytails. Will try to keep you posted.

    Thanks
