    but if you set your idler lean while your cable/ flex gaurd is at static....torque and all, the idler is set to that amount of torque....right? So when that cable gaurd moves or flexes and that torque changes, your cam lean changes, and your saying that is somehow MINIMAL movement?

    and what facts exactly have you provided me with, so far all it has been is your opinion. It is your opinion that these moving cable gaurd bows tune better and shoot better, but the fact here is that we have yet to see one win any kind of Major tournament, and that FACT is especially interesting considering the current trend towards short axle bows being shot in competition. You made a comment a few posts ago about the Mathews Monster having serious torque related problems, yet Levi Morgan or Chris White don't seem to have any problems when they shoot that bow. Or how about Dave Cousins when he shot the AM35 and Maxxis 35? That's a short bow with a regular cable gaurd, must be a problem right? What about Gary Smith Jr. taking 2nd at Louiville with his Maxxis 35? According to your "facts" these guys are all fools, but for me, I take those results as proof. Thats my "opinion" lol. Take this as another example: Years ago it was "fact" that short axle bows were, unforgiving and inaccurate....not so much anymore.

    I would like to know why type of tuning experience you have?
    How many years of shooting?
    How many bows have you setup and tuned?
    How many brands and models do you have access to?
    Who have you been trained by?
    Do you setup bows for a living?

    lol, seriously?...I could give you all than info, but really whats the point? I've either set up 1 bow or 1 million, I've either shot a bow for 1 day or all my life and then it's a question of how old I am, I've either been trained by somebody that matters to you or I haven't, get the point. So really why does it even matter to you, because it shouldn't. I don't care where you work, who's trained you or how long you've been shooting or selling bows. It doesn't mean you know more than me, BUT in all fairness nothing I tell you should mean I know more than you either, and it was never my intention to come accross that way.

    For someone who likes facts, I find it interesting that you attended the ATA show, yet you have not provided any info on these bows wer'e discussing direct from the designers/ engineers who built them, surely you must have spoken to one while you were there.

    We're having a disscussion, debate, dissagreement, whatever you want to call it, you can either respond to my last post or you can't, I won't lose sleep either way.

    I wanted to know how much education, experience whatever you want to call it when it comes to tuning bows, so I know who I am talking to.

    If you want to talk about specific bows, just let me know and I'll show you or explain to you how you can test this stuff yourself.

    I'm trying to relay my experiences in hopes that it helps others when they find issues they can't solve and have things happening that they don't understand.

    If I am so wrong on this subject, why is it that Bowtech, G5, Darton, and Mathews are trying to find solutions to this non-problem? Do I think what they have come up with is the be-all end-all to the all the problems. Absolutely not but it's a start.

    Here's a video for you. Start listening about 2:30
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CNQixvwh8Y

    If you wish to disagree with what I'm telling you, that's fine.

    Those that come to my shop do so because I'm extremely picky about how bows get setup. Call it tuning, supertuning or just being anal, I don't care. I set them up the properly or not at all. This is why guys drive 2 hours to have me work on their equipment.

    I do this for a living everyday and have tuned and setup thousands of bows. I don't make this stuff up as a go along.

    So I guess we will just have to disagree on this subject.

    If anyone else need or wants more information, just let me know.

    lol, I knew you couldn't resist giving me your "credentials."

    So If I say I have alot of experience shooting, tuning, selling bows, you would actually believe me? Who cares, I post what I post and you respond to it or not, but you keep avoiding everything stated in my posts.
    As far as the video goes, thats marketing for you. Let me guess, that guy is trying to sell G5 bows, right? lol. If you follow that logic, than no proffessional archer should shoot a single cam, because of the nock travel, or no one should shoot a reflexed riser bow for that matter because they are not as accurate or forgivng as a deflex riser, yet with the exception of Dietman and his deflex riser Money Maker at Vegas ALL tournaments last year were won with reflex or straight risers. I'll take the "limmited accuracy" that guys like Dave, Chance, Braden, and Reo experience with their torquey cam leany bows. you can't believe everything you see on tv?
    We can agree to dissagree, call a truce, whatever, so other's can chime in and I'll go back to lurking

    acesup, why don't you go back to AT and start your arguements while hiding behind your username there? I, for one, am tired of you trying to start a fight over this without actually providing any information other than some past tournament results to back it up.

    Hilarious! This is the Internet you know...EVERYBODY hides behind there username. I'm in a different city, state, country, in my home, sitting on my sofa, but guess what SO ARE YOU!

    And what fight are you talking about? I didn't say anything rude or disrespectful, Chris has been challenging every response just as I've been. It's a discussion...right? If it bothers you so much, then I for one can't imagine why you keep logging on to read it?

    Did I not just say in my last post that we would agree to disagree and I would leave well enough alone so others can give their input?

    K I watched the video and I find it interesting to see that they say that there flex guard reduces torque but how is it not affecting the accuracy of the system when the arrow is shot and it pulls the cables out of the way of the arrow, putting side torque on the cams?

    I do not believe anyone is arguing that these archers aren't good. I do not believe anyone is arguing that you can be accurate with what has become a standard set-up. The point is if a bow can be designed that will shoot a wider range of spine, or a tune straight down the middle, or have your pins line up over the arrow etc why not. Capitalism succeeds b/c people will look for improvement.
    The bows you mention...the Monster has a yoke on split to each cam for a reason, the Maxxis moved to an inline roller guard for a reason.
    I had a bow with cam lea,/ limb twist, whatever you like to call it and it was harder to tune.

    Acesup, I'm not sure I've been able to follow your logic. The cams are only being stressed/pulled one way. By reducing the amount of stress/pull, it will lean less. Less movement throughout the draw cycle. I'm not being argumentative.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, the TRC idea will also be very helpful in achieving good BH flight. That is were its merits will shine.

    Thumbs up 3 track has no equal for tune-ability.

    I still consider the 3 track x cam the best system ever engineered.
    It's not perfect but it's the only alternative if one does not want cam lean or cable induced torque.
    I have always loaded an arrow nock toward string anyway so that is not an issue for me
    I use Dave Barnsdale's spreaders which make it a snap to load any arrow and vane style.
    OK Archery is big on the 3 track as 80% of their bows sales in Europe is with the x cam.
    Only system I have shot since 2003 and refuse to shoot anything else.
    I hunt and shoot spots with the 3 track with equal ease.
    Easiest to tune system ever devised.

    The shorter the axle to axle, the more the cable system is going to try to pull the cam out of alignment. So if I can allow those same cables to flex inward, this means there is less pull on the cable which in turn means there is less lean to the cam or idler.

    I don't know how else to explain it. Now if you have another theory as to why the ilder leans, please provide some more details.
    Please open this link, I think it will shed some factual light on the issue. The bows have been tested and the results are the product of measurement not opinion.

    I don't think anyone is trying to dispute Chris's knowledge, I've read several great topics of his, but I also have to agree with Ace's opinion that you can OVERTHINK things too much. I think there will never be a "perfectly tunable" bow, every bow out there will have their own little quirks and issues....I think it comes down to the operator and how he tunes and sets the bow up.

    For instance, I just spoke to Tim Gillingham seeking advice on an arrow and I brought up "spine". He went into an explanation of how to set up a bow according to the spine of the arow instead of trying to spine the arrow to the bow...and let me tell you this guy is smart as heck and opened my ideas to directions I had'nt even considered.

    I guess what I'm saying, is that a bow is mechanical device that will never be "perfect". I think more tuners should try to tune the bow to the shooter and not so much tuning the bow to "perfection".

    And I'm sorry, but the Prime cam design is a gimmick to come of with something different, nothing more, nothing less. IMO

    I agree with RM in the fact that the bow should be tuned to the shooter and not necessarily to prefection in a vacuum. That's rarely the case!

    Chris guys in your area are lucky to have someone as knowledgable and picky about a setup as you are!

    Unfortunately many of the shops I visit while on the road are sending out some downright pitiful setups. Customers deserve much better!!

    It's even amazing how many bows I get in here bought from a competitor to resetup. It makes for a Happy customer for me but it makes me wonder how some guys stay in business.

    I'm Sure you see the same!

    Why is it no one can answer the question I asked, if that video is supposed to talk about eliminating torque well I think that system is is still adding torque to the shot sequence.
