    I am having a timing issue with the 2013 Creed. How far from the idler wheel should the cord be tied. I have tied the cord where the idler wheel intersects the limb. Should the cord be tied further away toward the riser?
    Thanks for any help

    No closer to the riser, rest relies on limb tip movement to activate rest. So if anything, closer to axle would speed up rest. I question why you feel that you have a timing issue? The beauty of this rest is that it can’t NOT work if cord is snug and launcher arm is completely down when bow is at rest.

    I was told by VT when I had timing issues with the ProV on my Z7 Mag that they wanted me to move the timing cord toward the riser. I moved there and it did help.

    Since I have seen another video showing moving the spot at which the timing cord is attached to the upper limb moving it toward the riser and it is shot in slow motion. It starts off with the timing cord near the upper cam axle and they take a shot and it shows contact. It gets moved three more times till it is a clear shot and looks like almost an inch in front of the outer edge of the cam.

    This video shows the same thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYBCf2z7pzA

    Now on my MR7 and Chill R I have it on the outer limb equal to the edge of the upper cam and it works great there.

    Very helpful info. When I said in my post that, out at the tip, moved rest faster, it does move fast, but late in arrow flight, which is good for stabilizing, but obviously stayed up too long. What I didn’t take into consideration was that it could be too late at the extreme! That said, I have always tried to run cord basically parallel with string, up from rest, which has always worked well, which as I see in video, is very close to where it ended up for best performance. I guess I got lucky. Thanks for posting video.

    You don’t have to tie them to the limb… We’ve ran them to the Y yoke and tied it right in the split of the cable and they work great.. I’ve ran that on numerous Hoyt’s & PSE’s in the past.

    Don’t think I would do that after watching video, but each to their own. I would rather have cord pulling straight up.

    Trust me, I’ve done it and a ton of reputable tuners have done it a lot over the years and it works perfect that way.

    {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}I trust you, that it worked for you. I’m just not gunna do it that way! Being tied back that far doesn’t pull straight on the arm.

    Which would matter if it ran off of a piece of rigid steel, d-loop cord is flexible so it doesn’t effect anything.

    Pivot point is designed to work in a vertical travel path, pulling in that path is most efficient. Side loading is not efficient. This is a mechanical view, I’m not saying your way doesn’t work, it’s that it puts more friction and stress on the pivot point.
