thoughts?You want to set your draw stops so they hit the limbs at exactly the same time. Because there may be slight variances in limbs the stops may not be in exactly the same location on the cams. That's not what's important anyway as long as they hit at the EXACT same time.
yeah, i think i'm going to be taking it back in to have it looked over. the shop i got it told me to bring it back after i put a few hundred shots through it to make sure everything was still in order, so i'll take them up on that.Maybe your strings have stretched. Happen to me on my 14 E35, had to add a bunch of twists.
Will do. I've gotten so much help here I can only hope some of my goof ups can benefit others.Doesn't sound like a string issue if it happened all of a sudden like you explained. My money is on your stops moving. After you put in on a draw board and get your valley where you want it, put blue locktite (red bottle)on the screws that hold them tight and you shouldn't have any further problems. Regardless of what your dealer discovers, let us know. You may help out a fellow Elite shooter. That's what this site is all about. (At least that's what it started out as) :' )
I have definitely considered this as my problem. And maybe now that the bow jumped out of my hand due to my laziness my body was overcompensating by pulling as hard as I can into the back wall. When I shoot tomorrow I'm going to start with a wrist release instead of my thumb release and draw and then let down to see how much let down it takes for the bow to hit the power cycle.First check and make sure cams are synced and the stops have not moved on you.
If those are good you may have a problem that I had last year.
I was getting "lazy" with the big valley of the elite, and found my self only holding to enough to where i was right on the edge of it starting to let go.
What i did to fix this is at night in my shed I would move my draw stops all the way in and draw and how my bow back while trying to aim at a small dot on my target. I would do this 20-30 times one arrow at a time. I did this 3 nights in a row out in the shed after we put the little one down for bed. Then moved my stops back out to my liking and never had the issue since.
Usually only one stop moves. You'd think a loose stop would move back and max out the valley but when the cams stop moving the stops move forward decreasing the valley. If the stops are so loose they freely move you will hear them rattle or buzz. When they are just loose enough to move they slide and then bind when they contact the limb at the end of the draw.If the stops loosened wouldn't they just slide to max DL and increase valley? Is the Energy series cam set up opposite of the older cam systems?
