    Default Smoothing out sharp cams and moduals on my nemesis?

    Hey Fellas, Hello again and glad to be here! Hopefully at some point I will be knowledgeable to give others suggestions instead of always receiving. I noticed one of the posts talking about filing the moduals and cams smooth, as to protect the servings. Can you please explain how this is done? With a flat file, or something less aggressive like a fingernail file. I am assuming barley just touch up the corners.
    Thanks again!

    Not sure what most use, but I'd opt for a nail file/emery board or start with finer grit sand papers. I have 300-600 that I have touched up my XT module with. Still need to go back to it at some point and touch it up a little more, I know it has a slight ridge on it, but I didn't want to mess with anything after the season started. Now that it is over, it is tinker time.

    That makes sense, start with something less aggressive. Can always sand a little more, but kind of hard to put back! Do you plan on touching up the paint afterwards or not?

    The XT module is anodized aluminum. It's on the inside of the mod, so I'm not overly concerned about it.

    i used sandpaper, started with 800 sandpapers and smooth it with 1500, and its gives u a very shinny edge, but end of the day, u still need a black sharpie pen to black it out. and it works well for all my bow.

    Thank you for the info!
    SHARPIE, wow. Why didn't I think of that. Sometimes I overthink things instead of keeping it simple and functional.
    And thank you for the advice on the rest, I will check one out.
