    If you could post a few pictures of your bow. one with the bow at rest with an arrow on it and one with the bow it full draw with an arrow on it. Also, maybe a couple pictures of the top and bottom cams looking at the draw modules.I am sure that we can get you fixed up.

    could you take some pictures for us with the arrow on the rest then with the bow drawn, feel that you are saying that the arrow pinches up 3/4" at draw ??? or is the arrow pointing down 3/4" at draw?

    I was the one put to question by another person for your bows. So second hand info ain't always good.
    And your reply needs puncuation and clarification maybe; "The issue is that with the bow at rest and the arrow square (right angle or zero nock setting) with the string and level with the cable (has nothing to do with nothing) guide (.) ?)
    During the draw cycle the arrow raises up about 3/4" putting the arrow at a very noticeable angle."

    So the nock of the arrow is raising, field point of arrow pointing down?

    I asked and I really didn't get what I wanted other than the string nock setting set to 3/8" low to get a somewhat descent paper tear. I asked for pics and you had already taken the bow.

    Dual cam bow;
    Both top and bottom mods must be set the same. I've had this before, person changed the bottom mod and didn't change the top mod.

    The draw must be backed off, not touching the limb at full draw. I've had this before, person changed the mods and didn't move the draw stop for the change.

    Mods correctly positioned, synced/timed correctly, the cables should lay in the mod groove flats at the same time. This should be done with limbs maxed out or backed off equally.
