    Default Need Help ASAP

    Okay here is the issue, i have my nemesis and love it but upon setting it up for hunter class 3d i ran into some issues.

    My spot hogg sight does not have enough adjustment i have it maxed out as far to the left as i can and its still about 4 inches not enough @ 20 yards.

    Upon brainstorming i thought well maybe its just me being a little rusty with my back tension release, but upon further investigation i believe i have just to much cam lean. which i believe is due to the roller guard (which i absolutely despise with a passion)

    I have a shoot next weekend in Ohio (Hotel and shooting fees already paid) and really need to get this resolved, any input appreciated if I am going about this wrong let me know and i would also like to know if the Nemesis can be converted to a roller guard if so let me know the part number or if any of you guys have a spare i could buy Thanks!

    What is the DW, DL, arrow spine & length and what is the measurement from the bridge between the rest mount holes to the center of your arrow with the bow at rest.?

    Definitely need more info, just as the other guys have said. However, if push comes to shove I would move the rest to the right (I assume you're right handed). I have a 2011 and 2012 Nemisis and both of them shoot weill with the rest set slightly inside center, so give it a thought. One thing I don't quite understand. Do you have a roller guard on the bow or do you want to convert to a roller guard? If you have the regular rod/slide I'd leave it alone. I'm not aware of any parts to change to a roller guard.

    I swap the windage bar around on my IQ's so I can get the extra windage I need. I HATE ROLLERS ! so I don't know what to tell you there. My friends Alien Z is a string chewing, cam leaning, limb breaking beast, 3rd set of limbs in 6 months. I stay with a simple rod and guide thank you.

    AH yes a conversion kit to put a rod and slide would be nice for my Diamond Iceman too. Maybe a Flexguard type that moves on the draw cycle.

    Sorry for the clarity issues. Specs are as follows 28" draw 58lbs 400 spine beman ics pro hunters cut to 27 inches with 100 grain point. (around 350 grains total)

    Rest is set just shy of an inch which is where i had it when i walk back tuned it when the bow first came in. I despise the roller guard and wanted to know if there was a cable slide conversion.

    The shots seemed to be going farther left as i kept shooting for the 3 hours i was out today. as far as pictures go there really is not much to take a picture of except maybe the lean at full draw which looks to be pretty bad but i dont believe it is bad enough to derail. I have experience tuning the nitro cams and i have to say i'm not impressed with them as far as reliability. not knocking them as they perform great but are a little tricky and you MUST keep your eye on them.

    ???? Not reliable? Trick? Mercy! Like drop dead simple. Haven't touched mine since...since...since... I can't remember!

    I almost said it just a bit ago in another thread, so I'll say it here. I wish you guys lived closer. The only Martin I couldn'y get to shoot "bullets" was one that had to have new limbs. New limbs and it was hungry for some for bull's eyes.

    I fought with mine to shoot bullets for a couple days finally gave up and walk back/bare shaft tuned it same with my onza 3 paper tuned to get it close then tweaked it by walk back tuning and bare shaft tuning.

    I'm curious as to why it is shooting like that. I have Nitro cams on my Firecat, and with no problems. They have been maintenance free, and I've shot my Firecat out to 60 yards. Maybe your rest isn't in quite the right place?? Do your cams not stay in time?
