    Eugene,
    You got a lot of good advice here, and I have nothing really to add other to ask a few more questions:
    Did you ever mention the arrows you're currently shooting? People are saying they're...

    Most of the rubbing damage on my strings happens right at the bottom edge of the center serving as it rubs my arm guard. Having a longer serving at the bottom helps prevent that damage.

    I'd ask for a new string. The ballooning strand likely indicates an imbalance in strand tension which would account for the peep rotating. Who knows what else might be wrong that you can't see.

    My shot sequence isn't done and I don't let my bow arm down until I actually see the arrow hit the target.

    Regardless of where it is in relation to the riser, the arrow is still nocked on the string and dropping the bow arm can still affect it until the arrow is completely gone. Dave Cousins swings his...

    The clicker doesn't force you to have perfect anything. It also shouldn't be a signal to release. It's merely a gauge that you've reached full draw exactly the same each time.

    400 is probably too stiff for 45 lbs. 500 might be better. You just said "left" which doesn't really help without a point of reference. Tip left or nock left? Each "left" would have a different...

    It's all about the arc of the arrow, arrow weight and gravity.
    At 10 yds, it's likely to still be rising. At 20 or so it levels out or perhaps is already dropping. A lot of times the aiming point is...

    Nope, never had a problem. I altered mine with a similar two part putty, but this one has the color and consistency of unfinished wood.

    Thank you. I've told her not to worry, that at her level and since she's shooting indoors only, she doesn't need to change what she's doing. The "trade offs" line made sense to her. But hearing it...

    Jeb-D,
    Can you elaborate your reasoning? I'd be afraid of stacking issues with anything more than an average draw length. Working the limbs to their max capacity would launch a faster arrow, but...

    Why do you believe a back quiver is your best option? If you're mixing arrows, it's nearly impossible to tell one from another as they're behind your back. If anything, I'd look for a side draw...

    You also have to remember it's on the *far side* of the bow, compared to conventional shooting. That alone will cause the arrows to fly left compared to what you might be used to.

    Depending on what it is, and who is making it, chances are you might be getting a Fast Flite style string. That'll cut the break in time down to near zero. Your arrows are likely to be just fine. If...

    My wife is only 5'3" and she was advised to go with the 25" riser and medium limbs.

    It's not the fastest setup, but it shoots as smooth as silk.

    I'd say unless you can see some obvious wobble, just learn to deal with it. These bows are not like anything else, and I wouldn't expect arrows to fly anything like you're used to before.
