    Unhappy

    There is no main agent for Bowtech in Australia, there are some people who know Bowtech but have no knowledge of the Binary Cams.

    The Company itself told you to come here to get advice on setting up your bow ? You didn't by chance get the name of that person did you ?

    We'll I'll help him if no one else wants to.. Draw the bow with an arrow on the string, just like you would be shooting the bow and while pointing it in a safe direction. While at anchor, have someone look at the relationship between the cables and the stops on the modules. You will have to be steady and let off slightly to get some clearance between the cables and the stops for your helper to judge the gap between the cables and the stops. If needed, press the bow to make changes by twisting one cable at a time, at the outer loop peg on the cam. Draw the bow again as outlined above and have your helper judge the gap distances again. Idealy, the cables should make contact against the module stops at the same instant.
    An easier way would be to use a crank board to draw the bow.
    Set the arrow's nock height so it is perfectly 90 degrees to the string. Set the arrow rest so that the string, the rear stabilizer mounting hole and the point of the arrow while on the rest and string is in a perfect alignment.

    These setting should give you a good starting point to tuning your bow.

    I think the manufactures rely on their dealers to service the bows they sell, it's their job. If there's no dealer close by there is always the internet, glad I could help!

    The first year for the BowTech Binary cams was 2005, I have one of the first Allegiances and it's still a great bow by today's standards. My wife also still has her '05 Defender which my Grandson used to take his first deer with last fall.

    I time my binary cam bows just like I would a 2 cam bow.

    Never had a problem just makes sure you have a draw stop on the cam and its locked down.
