I got my buddy into archery and he picked up a Bear Truth l for a good price. It needed strings so I ordered a set for him. I put them on last night the exact same way the old strings were on there but it seems wrong. It seemed wrong to me even before I changed the strings. The cable and string are crossing above the cable slide and are rubbing together. I looked at the owners manual and it shows the bow with the strings crossing above the cable slide but I have also seen photos on the bear site that shows the Truth l strings crossing below the cable slide. I think the stock slide was replaced with a NAP slide and maybe that is why the string/cable are rubbing. Attached are photos showing the string/cable crossing and rubbing.

If anyone give me some input I'd appreciate it.

you could try flipping the slide and see if you just have the slide on the wrong way. If so it should push away from each other.

I've tried flipping the slide and I tried crossing the cable below the slide, it seems wrong no matter what I do.

You know, I thought about that after I installed then and discovered the problem. The string must have been routed wrong with the old strings because I did everything exactly the same. And, yes it did seem harder to pull back than it should. I'll swap it tonight and check it out.

Thanks guys!

Re routed the bus cable to the other side of the string and problem fixed. There is now about 1/4 inch gap between the cable and string. It was routed wrong when my buddy got it so who knows if the previous owner was shooting it like that....
