    Bowtech Binary Cam nocking Point

    This is prompted by another thread, thought I would start a new one as it is bow specific.

    Quote Originally Posted by Marcus26 View Post

    On the binary cams should the knock point be exactly in the middle of the string between the cams?

    Mine is slightly above centre 10-12 mm, but looking at it from a functional point of view I am guessing slightly high should be OK, as it should mean knock travel during release goes up slightly, If I am right then arrow will release nock high which will give decent rest clearance.

    Is my logic correct?

    Not worried about my bow it is shooting really well I was more curious that anything.

    No it will actually come downwards. Chances are you won't get it spot in the middle, just get it as close as you can.

    do you measure the centre at rest or full draw? I measured at rest.

    My assumption was at full draw it would pull the knock central than when you released it would go from centre to where it is at rest, as mine is a little high I thought it would go up.

    no at rest

    no because you are changing the way the cams are rotating.

    Trimming limb weight

    Question, if the nocking point is high the that usually means the top limb is weak. As the cams are syncronised does this mean that you can increase the loading of the top limb a little to get the nocking point at zero? and would it be worth doing to get better nock travel?

    No, I have found only moving eth nocking point has a parctical effect on nock travel. You can adjust the cams timing to adjust the angle, but you need to be so drastically out that the bow is awful to shoot.
    Essentially set your rest so the arrow is level wth the bottom of the plunger hole and the bow will work it's best. Don't try to get too fancy, it aint worth the time. (the setup is very very difficult to move things on)
