    Just replaced my Switchback with a Chill and I was shooting a bushmaster rest.  It is a basic two prong dropaway that can lock in the up position if needed.  On my switchy I could shoot it with the cock vane up to get clearance with blazers.  Well with my Chill, I can’t do this because of the roller guard is really close and I hit the cables.  I put lipstick on the vanes and shot and turned them every which way and still getting lipstick marks on the rest or cables…any ideas or solutions?

    Thanks everyone

    The cables do look close especially using a high profile vane like a Bohning Blazer. I have a question for you, what is the center shot measurement or from the wall of the riser to the center of the shaft what does it measure? It typically should be in the range of 13/16″ and some cases more and some less. If this is too close the vane contact could happen. I also turn my shafts in so the top vane is at 1:00 and that allows the inside vane to clear the cables and the rest. Some turn it to the 11:00 side for clearance. Hope this is some help.

    I believe it is 13/16″ but I will check tonight.  If you turn the cock vane at 1 oclock, how does the vane below it not hit the part of the rest where the cable attaches?  Mine is a box shape with with a metal ring where the cord attaches.  Seems it hits there too.  Maybe it’s not set up correctly, but the dealer should know what he is doing I would think.

    I turn it so it will pass by the cables. A clearance of a very small amount is all that is needed. Now if the vanes are hitting the rest then maybe the timing is not setup properly or the rest itself is not setup on the vertically. It sounds like it is horizontally if you’re set at 13/16″ or close to it.

    Just throwing this out there because I’ve had this problem with my Reezen , is the string tamer on the  bow touching the string at rest ? If it is that can throw your string off to the side when it’s shot . It’s suppose to be a 1/8 inch from touching the string . My kisser button would hit the cable roller and shatter my kisser button . Check that out and see if that keep the string from hitting
