Very soft button requirement

WAs helping one of the girls set up a new Shibua dx button today and came up with a bit of an issue.
She's an experienced shooter, doing 550 portsmouths. She is quite small, so shoots 40lb Hoyt limb she but only draws 32lb. She is currently shooting ACC's in1500 spine..

we checked centre shot and sight positioning, all fine. Started with the button at a stiff setting, arrows 2ft left on a Portsmouth.. I then kept backing off the tension until she was shooting central, which resulted in the button being so soft it is moving under the clicker pressure.
Has anyone expericed this before? Is it a case of moving centre shot out to enable the tension to be increased? I thought moving to the left would make the arrow impact left though?

I guess the other option is to move the sight pin out to the left and then increase tension to get the impacts central?

Ignore what the sight position is doing and bareshaft test until you are getting good groups. Then move the sight to bring the groups back on to gold.

Was this a replacement button for an older one; or a first button having used a stick on rest like the Hoyt super pro? If it replaced an older button then set the new one to match and all should be well. If it replaced a stick on rest, perhaps the old centreshot was right of centre. I am assuming the arrows are the ones she shot before the new button was fitted.
I am guessing that she may have used the wrong eye to aim with if she is right handed.

If after the BS tune the clicker is still affecting the button use a magnetic clicker. Unlike the spring blade clicker , the more you move the magnetic clicker away from the riser the weaker the attraction gets. Where as the opposite happens with a blade clicker. the magnetic clicker puts very little side pressure on the arrow but still makes noise

Probably arrows too weak and contact on the riser giving a false BS result.
That sounds right to me. Lots of missing info but she must be around a 25” draw if getting 32# that would suggest several spines stiffer needed.

Suggesting taking the exact measurements - weight and arrow length - and looking at the Easton arrow chart with a fresh set of eyes as a starting point.

I'd agree... I'm on about 32lbs on the fingers, and drawing 26" and using 830 ACCs. 1500 spine is a big jump down.
