    Hoyt In-Line roller guard problem

    I bought a new hoyt Rampage XT little less than a month ago and my in-line roller guard housing is chewing up my string. Hoyt said to take it to a dealer and would fix it, but they have never see this problem. I was just wondering if anyone else is having this problem. DSCF0243(resized).jpg

    Yikes! Looks like it somehow got, (or is getting) pinched between the roller guard and the roller guard mount. But it sure looks like it got pinched to me. Either way, you're going to have to have that cable re-served.

    Do you wax your string too much?

    Could possibly be a bur on the roller guard that didn't get machined smooth? Most likely they will replace the roller guard. Heck, if it were mine I would have them replace the cables too since it is new. Good luck. Glad you noticed it before it cut through.

    I would guess a bur or the roller was put in backwards. Yes, there is only one way it should be put in.
    Many have asked. Does a scope and lens really help? Heck yes it does!! I miss a lot more accurately now.

    well I am glad that no one else has had this prob so maybe an easy fix. theres no burs on the roller its that the string just isn't sitting down in the roller and is rubbing the housing. So it's off to the pro shop i go.

    I had a roller bearing go bad on 2010 Maxxis. You can pull the bolt out of the roller, remove the roller and verify the bearing is not sloppy in the roller. Look for rubbing on the side of the mount. That is how I noticed my issue.

    Brother I have about 2000 shots or more on my XT, and my cables are slick. Something is not right there for sure.

    Hope you get it fixed soon.

    Hoyt should stand by that one.

    Good luck.
