    Default Educate me on Hybrix cams!

    My Nemisis is already 5 days old and shooting lights out. I've twisted until I've got the cams synched, but I figure that's only a starting point. Brace is 1/4" high. Seems to me that on a parallel limb bow, there's not much you can do about that. Am I wrong?

    What I would like to know more about is what is a good starting point for the cams at brace. I don't see any really good indicators or marks to use as a reference.

    Tell me what you've learned. I've only got 180 days to get it perfect!

    The 2 most important things to do are to get the strings set to factory specs, then make sure the cams are timed. The AtA and brace heights are appox specs only.

    Maybe I should sober up and watch it again! I'm thinking I know, but what was the point in marking the modules 1/2" from the end? Should that be the tangent point at full draw?

    The Hybrix/Cat/Nitro cams don't come from the factory with timing marks, you have to put your own on the cams and that point on the mods seems to be the best location.
    You need to be very precise when doing this, I always use calipers when making the marks.
