    Question.. i have a halon 32 and i feel the yoke lean is extreme. It is almost touching the cam but never has it touched it from what i can see. Is this normal? I am to assume if i press the bow and slide it over it may correct it some?

    Any suggestions are welcome..

    Thanks IMG_0258.jpg IMG_0259.jpg IMG_0260.jpg IMG_0261.jpg IMG_0262.jpg

    Is the cam leaning? Or just the yoke?

    Run a bare shaft (or yard stick) along one side of the cam then the other. Does it cross the string or run inline?

    My yolk looks similar on my Halon 6, but the cam is straight.

    I am more concerned on the yoke.. Not the cam itself.. I will double check with the yard stick though for sure.. Just the yoke cable is close to the cam itself.. Its like it on the bottom but not as "extreme"

    It's a floating yoke design. It's supposed to float to path of least resistance.

    The only thing that could possibly cause an issue is if your cables are routed through the roller guard in the wrong position. The cable going to top cam (single loop) should be passing through the roller on the right hand side when looking at the bow from behind. It's hard to tell from your pics but it looks like yours might be in the wrong rollers. That can definitely cause what your seeing.

    Thanks for the tip.. I checked the cable and the top runs into the right so that is ok.

    Fitz i ran the yard stick down the cams and they are in line.. So its the yoke strings that are just floating. I have a press coming i am giong to press it and make sure the plastic piece is centered correctly. it seems it may be a tad off but not by much.. Would twist in the bus strings be a factor any?

    Since the roller guard sits above the mid point of the bow the angle of the yoke is always going to be more steep on the top cam than the bottom. All of my Halons look just like yours in terms of proximity of the yoke cable to the cam. It's a tight squeeze, however it's never been an issue for me or anyone else I know for that matter.

    I think I did a bad job at explaining. The cable that attaches to the top cam (end of the cable that doesn't have the yoke) should be passing through the right side of the roller guard. From what I can see in your pic, it doesn't appear that you have them routed the right way. That's what is yanking your yoke over like that.

    Edit - Justin is right, there will always be some of that on these bows. The beauty of a floating yoke is that it will auto adjust like you see on your bow. However it's going to be more pronounced when you have the cables routed the way you do.

    Pic for clarification:
