    I got the ata straightened out. The other problem I have is some serious cam lean at full draw. Any suggestions?

    This should be simple to fix. Just measure from axle to axle on both sides of the bow. Whichever side is longer, twist top and bottom cables on that side equally until the cams look right.

    I don't have the lean until it is at full draw. i measured both sides of the bow and both sides measure 32 1/4

    Rnfrazier sorry I jumped the gun. I forgot that bow doesn't have split yoke cables. Unless you have play in your cams I would guess limb twist. Thats unless someone has more understanding about the problem.

    First, if there is any play at all in the cams, it will cause it to lean at full draw. You can check them for lean by putting an arrow against the string and the cam to see if it is straight.
    Second, limb twist can be checked by removing the limb and laying it on a flat surface. It is not unusual in these newer bows to have either problem. But remember Martin covers most things. Lately I believe BFisher has been answering a lot of these same questions.

    Are you sure your just not seeing things? Lol what you should do is have someone with an arrow and when you pull back, have them set the arrow with the cam, so it follows the angle of the string... I had this same dilemma with my 08 firecat, but when I had someone do this for me, I realized its just how your holding the bow, and how you look at the cams

    I have to agree with Jake the snake. It could be an optical illusion. Let's hope that's all it is.

    Another way to check for a weak limb is to tear the bow down and swap the limbs from top to bottom and see if the cam lean stays with a particular limb. If the same limb is exhibiting the lean then maybe the limb is the problem.
