    I have a 70lb Heli-m that’s backed off a couple of pounds. Wandering around the Lost Camo site in the tools section, I noticed some limb shims. I haven’t shimmed before, but didn’t know if it is a good idea, or even necessary at all? Appreciate any thoughts you have. Thanks!

    No need to shim, check your specs and add a couple of turns to your cable, simple fix.

    I understand that part, and it’s probably me asking the question wrong or maybe it’s just a dumb question, but I was wondering with it being backed off a couple pounds from maxed out, is it necessary to shim the gap between the limbs and the riser or is it ok to have the small gap there with the exposed limb bolt???
