    If you look at these pics, you’ll see the cam now has a large hole that the cable passes over. When the cable passes over the center of the hole your bow is perfectly timed :thumbup

    These holes are on the Mission and McPherson lines as well

    The original 2 holes parallel to the string can still be done :thumbup

    we are not using the 2 small holes in the cam like we use to…… we are now using the big hole where the cable runs through…… [=}=]

    :thumbup :thumbup That is going to be so much easier than lining up the 2 holes in the cam like we used to have to do :D

    OK. Just for clarification… I just got my Reezen 6.5. I noticed that it did not line up with the middle of the big hole. I asked my dealer and he said that the Reezen’s still use the little holes. Which is it??? Thanks in advance

    If cable isn´t centered with the hole must I correct twisying the string or the cable?
    I suppose that if there are any other aspects of the bow I must deal with (lean,ATA,BH) centering the cable to the hole must be done afterwards? [-o|

    :D Yes twisting of string/cable is the only way to tune the cam alignment to spec using string and alignment hole…however one must keep ATA brace height and idler lean in mind while doing so…as any modifications of the string /cable will effect all aspects of spec tune..

    Interesting in that on picture the Reezen has a longer string suppressor than the one I have…? And it is beating that bottom suppressor all to pieces splitting it actually. And now I’m having the string start jumpping the top suppressor folding it over. I don’t know what is going on. I have a Drenalin that I love and no problems with it what so ever. The Reezen is my 5th Mathews bow. I love Mathews they are the only bows that I shoot very well. I hate to be negative.

    “If you look at these pics, you’ll see the cam now has a large hole that the cable passes over. When the cable passes over the center of the hole your bow is perfectly timed”

    The pictures of the cams and strings shows how the Reezen should look when properly timed. I have a question. I have a new Reezen 7.0, 60-70#, 29″ DL. I’ve backed it off to about 62#. Should the same timing be used for the poundage reduction? In other words, is it the same regardless of the weight you are pulling?

    The monster should be similar to tuning a binary. It doesn’t matter where the cams are when the bow is relaxed, its at full draw when you want to observe. The syncing of the cams is most important thing. Since your nocking point isn’t exactly in the middle of the string between the cams your nocking point is going to affect the timing of the cams. Put it in a draw board and then make adjustments. This is also a great time to check for cam lean which can be virtually eliminated with the yoke system. With a dual/binary cam bow the draw board and press are the 2 best tools you can own.

    Great to know Bob, I didn’t know that about the Reezen(s)

    Just for my own curiosity, why is there still two holes being Machined in the cam, if there not used or needed? [=}=]
