    I agree, all stickies and information are for righty’s. One has to use way to much thinking to tune a lefty. ](*,) I like simple like “righty tighten, Lefty loosen”. How about a sticky for lefty’s. :thumbup

    I agree. Neil should re-write the whole thing in a left-hand version. Why should we have to think in reverse? It’s blatant discrimination! :thumbdown :thumbdown

    It would be nice though. :thumbup :thumbup

    :whistle :whistle Ok …everything UP or Down applies to both left or right

    that part is simple right….. :whistle

    Ok now everything mentioned to the go to right for RHS … go left for LHS….mentioned go left for RHS…go right for LHS…

    [ RHS=Right Hand Shooters...LHS means Left Hand Shooters]
    :phew: :phew: Done

    You mentioned that when you run a strait edge across the idler wheel you should have about an 1/8 in gap between the string and the strait edge at the nocking point on the rest side of the bow.

    Is this the same on the monster bows? or do they run parallel with the string or is does the top and bottom cam both lean so they have a 1/8 in gap at the nocking point?

    :D Dont worry about Idler lean on the Monsters…the AVS system is like a “Floating Yoke”…it is designed to adjust the yoke on its own…so with tuning with the AVS you can eliminate the proceedure of tuning.

    STEP THREE

    22) Idler Wheel Lean- most Mathews with “string settlement” will tend to lean to the bows left side- therefore add twist to left harness loop to adjust IWL, -

    . [/color:1bq7iyxa]

    IS it just me or if the idler has a left lean looking at the bow from behing the string and the idler top edge is tipped to the left, Wouldnt you want to add a twist to the right side to pull the idler back to the right. I am probably looking at something wrong but i am hoping you can set me straight.

    :D No ….left is correct…think of it this way… left lean…

    as you twist the left yoke it shortens the left yoke pulling the left limb at axle…therefore pulling the limb and the idler right…

    Clear as mud :^O

    ok so for whatever reason i am not following here. So a left lean means the top of the idler is leaning to the left if you holding the bow and looking from directly behind it. So the idler would look like . Am i correct on that.

    :D Correct and as you twist left yoke limb at axle moves inward… bringing idler to this l…twisting too much does this /…

    clearer?

    :D Maybe look at it this way…the idler is not really leaning itself..it is more like the idler and half the slit limb of the V is being pulled left or right by an over twisted yoke…tighening the other brings it straight on with the string…

    :D
