    I thought the cable was supposed to pass through the middle for proper timing. How do you adjust the timing to center it, or is this normal?

    Adding 2 or 3 twists to your cable should center the string in the hole. 

    It will also  bring your axle-axle measurement back into spec , and add a couple pounds back to your draw weight .

    DP,

    I’m now shooting about 3″ low now.  Any ideas why?  I figured with an increase of poundage and speed the arrow would hit higher, not lower.  Something very minor changed, but I can’t figure out what.  Did the three twists affect my string (nock point)?

    By adding three twists to your cable , you lowered you nocking point & your peep sight, you need too raise both and paper tune!

    srfrboy,

    I’m still trying to feel my way through this tuning thing and I am a bit confused.  This is my first Mathews so please bear with me.  If the additional twists caused my nock point and peep to lower, wouldn’t lowering my rest accomplish the same thing w/o having to re-tie the other two?  Also, if they did in fact lower why would my arrow hit low?  Wouldn’t it hit higher if my nock point was too low?

    “wouldn’t lowering my rest accomplish the same thing w/o having to re-tie the other two?”

    Too move the nock point or to move the rest is the question. Depends on where the arrow is in relation to the berger hole on the riser.

    Personally, I would paper tune, broadhead tune , re-sight the bow, and  leave the peep alone.  3 twists in the cable would not have moved the peep significantly.

    I will have to play around with it and see what results I get.  I will try FP and FBBH together and see what rest adjustments are needed.  I will adjust rest and a take picture of arrow over berger hole, and then see where it leaves me.  Thank you for help thus far.  I’m eager to learn to tune it correctly.  I want to do it right.
