The only thing I could suggest is to rotate the turret CW then CCW counting the turns, then half that # of turns. That will put you turret zero which should be reticle zero.FD
Is there a way to reset the elevation to zero?
I fired at 40 and lost an arrow

When I slide my trigger box down the rail I always make sure I push the box so that the string deflects forward. This insures I pass the DFI and set the trigger gate. I also don't let the trigger box drop by itself, I hold the thumb knob on the trigger box and guide it down the rail after pressing the catch release. I too had to uncock after only setting the DFI but this only happened once.Thanks George! No 40 yard attempt yet. I got the one shot off at 20 yards and then either flipped my safety on after the shot, (too many years of rifle shooting) or I just didn't seat the block far enough on to the string before I re-cocked it. Either way, I was stuck on the DFI and that ended my range outing. Had to go home and investigate my options, being as I couldn't get it to de-cock in order to get the string off the DFI. Turns out I just didn't crank it up tight enough to release the pressure, as I feared busting the crank by winching on it. I should be okay once I get back out there though.
That’s cool! Yes sir sighted in and ready! Good luck to youEverybody get sighted in A-Okay?
Had to replace my string today. After 500 shots it began to tater just a bit so, for 29.00 she is all ready to go again.
Anyone that does their own string or desires too, it's a very easy task with two aluminum pins rather buying a press or having a shop do it. Let me know and I'll post a pic on the process.
Hope everyone is safe and healthy in this crazy time!
Bull Dog,A 16 pointer? Not where I will be hunting. LOL! I'd be lucky to see an 8 pointer. That is the reality of hunting upstate deer. But it's okay...antler's don't taste good anyway! Thanks again FD. Hopefully I will get a chance to finish the process of sighting in on Sunday.
How critical is it that they have the exact same point position left to right? Mine only has 5 shots through it and they aren't the same so I have to assume that it came from the factory like thatHey Viper Clan,
I have some tech notes to share that may aid in the maintenance and understanding of our bows that is not mentioned in the manuals. I'll post them as discovered, So, here's the first one.
Cam Lean: The Viper requires positive cam lean for two reasons. One, limiting string to rail pressure that reduces wear and two, increases speed slightly. This is easily checked with this simple method. Cams out of lean can cause accuracy issues.
Lay a known perfect arrow, .001" grade, with a field point on the top of the cam as shown and pinch with your finger to hold flat on the cam. Slide the field point end toward the riser/limb bolt until it lines up with the bolt head as shown. IF the point lines up at center of the bolt then you have neutral cam lean. You do not want the point to be below center of the bolt. Optimal cam lean is as shown, point at the top edge of the bolt head. Check both sides and compare. Optimal cams will be identical point position.
The lower cable can be adjusted by adding twist if you are not positive enough. However, only adjust adding 1/2 turn at a time. Test shoot and recheck. If you have a shop make adjustments, "Tune", your bow be sure they adjust your cams to this angle to insure you get all the benefits of proper cam lean.
Hope this helps!
More to come, ASMS
How much are you referring too? Are they both positive as shown in the pics? Post some pics of the L and R.How critical is it that they have the exact same point position left to right?
