Tuning Help: I have a bowtech realm SR6. I’m a rookie and I took the rest off to fix something, re tied my nocking point, etc. I’m having a hard time taking a tail left tear out. I have moved rest so far right that I am hitting cable guard and am almost out of adjustment on my Hamskea trinity. It doesn’t feel right to me. What am I doing wrong?

Should I go all the way back over to center shot? (13/16 - 7/8") and yoke tune using this video?


Shooting 60#, 28" draw, 340 spine

Yes, do what @sndmn11 said. Bowtech has some good videos on yoke tuning. I’ll also add that Gold Tip has a short series on super tuning that you need to watch as they’re invaluable to understanding the big picture of tuning a bow.

I bought a used SR6 last year and put new strings on it and completely tuned it by myself with no previous experience either, you got this.

Because I like to try and figure things out myself if I can.
Fair enough. Are you new to archery or new to bow tuning?

FWIW, I tried upgrading my own rest as a newbie archer and ended up with a poorly tuned bow until I took it in to a shop. I probably could have done the work myself but decided that my time was better spent learning to shoot. If you've got some experience under your belt then have it - I plan on learning how to service my own equipment a little ways down the road.

If you have to "lean" the cams substantially I would guess you have too long a draw length setting on the bow.

forget what the numbers are supposed to be on the cam settings and get the bow to fit you.

This assumes you have properly spined arrows and have the bow set up correctly!

If you have a press doing it your self is easy, keep in mind that those cam systems are really sensitive, if you adjust the yoke it will throw off cam timing, have to adjust both cams to keep things equal.

Forgot to ask, did you check your cam pre lean? That will be your biggest tell-tale sign of whether your bow is in tune or not. The SR6 manual will tell you what the lean should be preset to and the final tune will be somewhat close to the preset lean.

first, was the bow good before you removed the rest? if it was then nothing should have changed from removal. second, forget paper tuning and go shoot the bow. shoot bare shaft or broadhead, paper tune can show problems that have nothing to do with the bow. as far as the cams, bowtech always has cam lean and sometimes too much in my opinion. the tune process for bowtech is to use a spot hogg laser tool on the cams and call it good and any owner voids the warranty by tuning their bow. put the rest back to center shot and shoot the bow one bare and one reg shaft and see if they both go into a foam target at the same angle. from that you adjust the rest and if you need more than 2 lines in either direction on that rest you go to yokes. also there should be 2 holes on the horiz. adj. so you can move that bolt to the left hole to get more.

Center shot, rest timing, and yoke tune. @devinhal had an invaluable post about how to time that rest, search his post history.
This ole boy has it figured out. I personally do not measure my center shot but rather eyeball it from behind the bow. I’ve never been able to achieve any respectable precision with measure with a straight rule or calipers. After center shot is set it’s time for the yokes to be used for the their design.

You mentioned being a rookie and I wasn’t sure if you meant at working on your own equipment or with archery in general. The clutch grip on these bows are great but you absolutely have to have a proper grip and it has to be consistent if you’re going to paper tune. These bows aren’t difficult to tune once it’s in spec. Make small adjustments and shoot it several times to ensure it’s settled in and your shots are consistent. At times it may get frustrating, but stay focused and be patient. Last thing you’d want is to get too wrapped up in it and derail your string or forget to nock an arrow.
