    Ok bowstring experts...what are the pros and cons of fixed and floating yolks? My vapor trails im shooting have a fixed yolk and i had to put about 30 twists in one side to get rid of the cam lean....im thinking my next set of strings will likely be a floating yolk to eliminate this process....what do you guys think?

    I think that is the main advantage of floating yokes.

    But if you have a weak limb on one side you can not fix any lean

    Sorry man I was only busting your chops. If it were my Hoyt I'd have a floating yoke on it. If cam lean was that bad, I'd be talking to hoyt. My son has stayed with the floating yoke with no problems. If his has any lean it does'nt show in arrow flight or tuning. You might try swapping the limbs side-to-side or top and bottom and see if it's still a problem first. Bad limb or cam bearing? Swapping things around should tell you something.
