    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    Hmmm,
    Mine is the older version, but I have dual cams, they are timed perfect, the only thing I get is a little lift from my rest, so I get a little tear on the top. Maybe try the baby powder on it and see if he's getting fletch contact, ... knock point not set exactly where it needs, wrong spine on the shaft? just a few obvious things I've learned from you guys.

    Finally, now says they have a 3/8" nock low setting to even get it close to paper tuning.
    Ain't no way sync/timing is correct. Maybe a weak limb, but two bows and both having tuning issues says someone isn't doing something right. Maybe even having a mod not set right and someone twisting cables to make..... I've seen this before. Even heard of changing mod for draw length and not resetting the draw stop.

    Trying to get him to send pics. Frustrating is turn around time.

    I GOT IT! Set up the bows with some electronic gizmo. Then have one of those phone hookups like for checking heart Pace Makers. Then it'd be like at garages, plug you car into the diagnostic gizmo and Presto; "Cable feeding into bottom cam needs half twist." (Wishful thinking )

    You dont even know how many people will call and pluck the string or pull back the bow and say "did you hear that?", "No? Let me shoot it...listen real close"

    Hi guys, I happen to be the owner of the firecat bows that are being discused here and I think that the original question here was misinterpreted. The issue is that with the bow at rest and the arrow square with the string and level with the cable guide during the draw cycle the arrow raises up about 3/4" putting the arrow at a very noticeable angle. If this explanation makes sense and anyone would like to comment on it please feel free.

    Well first things first, welcome to the forum, glad you're here!

    Secondly, I'm not sure if I follow what what you're saying... are you saying that at rest you ended up with a 3/4" high nock height?, or that the nock travel is 3/4" vertical during the cycle?

    I think that the first would indicate an issue, most likely with clearance, and that the second would probably be close to normal, especially given that the nock point is not "center" of the shooting string anyways...

    Might sound stupid but I've seen it before. Are you using a drop away rest, and making sure the rest is in the "UP" position at rest when you set the nock heigth? Had a guy set his nock height with the rest in the down position, then got the exact same thing when he drew back, and the rest came up... Other things to check, make sure the mods are in the same settings, both mods are on #3 for instance. Only other things that make sense are cams WAY out of time/synch, or a bad limb.
