I can't remember my AT password but I know some of you frequent both sites and have a lot more knowledge than I.
This concerns the '06 Allegiance. Everyone says the first thing to do is get your ATA. Well I have measured two of these bows now and if you take them out to the 34 inch ATA you are going to be in a world of hurt the way I see it. Both bows measured at 33 5/8 ATA.
Would it be recommended to open this thing up 3/8 of an inch??? This bow is very impressive but the local pro shop guy has NO INFORMATION on what this bow is suppose to be set at.
It kind of sucks that I'm going to have to run a whisker bisquet rest because of all the BS that you get. Example: I ask the proshop guy what we do to restore the 80% LO after tieing in a fall away. His answer is nothing. If you call BowTech there answer is "take it to your pro shop." Well I have news for you - this is turning into a circle with NO ANSWERS from anyone. The only people that seem to know anything on these - ie Dave Nowlin from AT claims it is easy - you just set ATA and then get the let off back to 80%. So MR. Nowlin or anyone else, BowTech says the ATA is 34". Should I take a brand new bow that is supposedly factory set to optimum performance and change the ATA distance by 3/8 of an inch? The '05 Allegiance I believe had the 33 5/8" ATA. Did BowTech post the '06 as 34" just to simplify? If so they REALLY should provide their dealers with some info on these things. And by the way the second one came with an owners manual. Don't get your hopes up that their is any info in those. Basically is says to take it to the pro shop. Um.........thanks
No dimensions, no info on cam stop location????
I guess for those of you looking to buy BowTech this would be part of your decision process. I wish I had known before I ordered. I even asked the guy if he had set up a bunch of these and he said yes and they are easy?????? And then proceeded to sell me a bow with fast cams at 80% LO. Once I paid for it he tells me that I have to run the smooth cam to acheive 80% LO???? Why not tell me that when I placed the order???
I guess it is easy when you don't do a thing. I have spent all the time researching this that I'm going to do. I spent alot of money on this thing and now feel like my best option is to not touch a thing and just shoot it with a whisker bisquit - not what I wanted but I feel like I have no choice because there is not a straight answer to be found.
And finally for anyone shooting the '06 - do you have to trim the string silencers so they don't fly off?
This is making me sick - I HATE to grip about something that appears to be an awesome bow but I feel like people should know the truth about what you get.
