    Why would you want to shim your limb pockets?

    Also, how would you go about doing it and what would you use?

    I would never recommend it.[/quote:tbrtjleu]

    The reason I would is because I noticed that the limb pockets have a little bit of play on the riser, not much maybe the thickness of a playing card. Also I know that some of the top shooters do it. I was also told that the reason for this is because anodizing is not as thick then the process used for camo bows.

    The way I’ve been told to do it is just to use shims from the auto repair shop and give the shims a 90 degree bend and but it on each cornet under the limb pocket.

    I noticed that the limb pockets have the screw on the side of them. I assume you loosen them up to change draw weight and then retighten when your done? [/color:tbrtjleu]

    Cheers,[/quote:tbrtjleu]

    Yes..I loosen both at least one full turn
