    i asked that question, bob couldn’t give an exact answer because he really didn’t have the info regarding serial #’s for when the process went into the production line. what i can say is, we have seen much better alignment with the chill, i can only assume that this is why.

    Shop just called and said he put a couple twists in the yoke and it took the lean out!? Timed the cams and he said it shoots perfect. Im sceptical but also hopefull. Will find out monday.

    If you use a fall away rest with an actuating cord that pulls on the down cable, after getting the bow tuned, then do a Creep Tune to get the final AVS synchronization. While the cams may be timed at brace, the actuating cord essentially short cables the down cables at full draw. When I used a QAD Ultra-rest on my Monster, I found that I had to slightly advance the top Cam to get the best performance. I’ve since switched to a limb actuated rest, the Trophy Take Smackdown Pro FC and would recommend it for the AVS bows.

       it’s called a floating yoke for a reason, it finds it own center,and always will. the only thing twisting does is shorten the harness itself . there is just enough friction on the harness where it wraps around the ring to make it appear as though the twists helped but, after a few shots, it will be right back to the way it was before twisting.  since your cam is leaning left, you could possibly swap the limbs side to side and try it. it may or may not remedy it. if dealer doesn’t want to do the swap, tell him to order you a set of limbs. as brian said, limb driven rests work very well on these cam systems to keep stress off the cable, affecting cam timing.

    Thanks guys for the info. I am 100% that it needs new limbs. As I said before, the tech was a young guy and I treid to explain the floating yoke to no avail. Just sucks because deer season just opened back up here in Az, and I have no bow.

    can MR series cams be shimmed at all to correct the lean?
