installed a new string on a Bear game over single cam and can only get 50# from a 60# peak weight bow. Ata is on at 31 in. And brace height is also on. What did I do wrong ?

Welcome to AT.

To get the poundage where it needs to be, you will need to lengthen the string or shorten the cables or both. It sounds like the string is too short or the cables have settled in too long. I would add about 5-8 twist to the cable and recheck. You should varify the new string length first and make sure it is the right length.

I agree with fletch. Check strings for length and may have to twist/untwist either. I would think the cam rotation would be off. However, not all given ata lengths are exact. I think the ata tolerance runs +/- 3/16".

draw weight will not come up to peak

Thank you Fletched for your advise! Shortend the cable length and bingo it worked. Made a few more twists and brought it right back to spec. Also a thanks to Sonny Thomas. Great web site, very glad I joined. John
