Tuning question

Default Tuning question

I am a proud owner of a matthews feathermax. The bow has always shot up to par. I put a new wisker bicuit on and my vanes went to crap. I have tried almost everything to tune it in but I am getting a bad left tear in paper. After comparing it to a friends feathermax I came to the conclusion that the cable guide was angled out alot further than on his ( maybe bent ). Thus pulling the wheel and limb to the right.
I called matthews tech support and was going to order a new guide but the tech told me that he doubtedthat it is bent, but depending on when my feathermax was made the guides were at different angles. That I just need to twist my cable at the yoke so that center is 13/16 from the riser to center of my arrow.
It makes sense but did matthews really make the same bow with different angles on the cable guides?
Any info on any of this would be greatly appreciated since bow season is one week away.

First off,welcome. The whisker is known for messing up your fletchings.And for the different guide angles if the Matthews tech told you that it must be true.I can't think of a reason he would lie to you.

Hi there, yes they did. Check your center shot as well as your cable. If someone changed the cable and did not ensure proper alignment, then yep, troulbe, trouble, pain, pain. Good luck.

I wasn't calling him a lier I just thought it seemed a little odd.

Yes mo fire I had the cables changed last year and I know for a fact he didn't check for proper alignment because I was there when he changed them out.
Thanks guys
