So yes I had to put new serving on my string as it started to fray. So as you all know this stinks sometimes cause could change evrethink and my bow is dead nuts tuned and on.

since strings/cables are not under warranty and I didn’t want to just cut the serving and burn it then super glue. I think this is just a bandaid. we discussed redoing serving and keeping loop the same location.

so the tech took off knock set and reserved. He was able to get everything right back to where is was. He did say no need for top knocking tie in only lower. Even the loop is exact and I’m real happy with that.

before I left the tech said let me take that back and see if I can put twist in it. He gave the bow back and asked me to shoot it for a little to see if the loop eventually comes around. I did my research beforehand and depending on how tight lose the serving is it can mess up the rotation.

I just don’t like how it looks at rest. I will say when I draw back the peep and sight housing are lined up. Every few shots I do turn peep slightly to the right. Most all arrows are flying true. Every now and then I get one that looks like a fish tail left.

here is the pic at rest. I think you will know what I’m talking about and how to fix this. Also when I pull loop back to strait it with my fingers I feel the tension as it wants to go back. Perhaps this is why I’m getting the fishtail. Can’t tell with thumb release only finger and thumb.

thanks and sorry for being long winded.

So if I twist the d loop to the right I’ll never get the peep to come around. He did tighten the loop in order to get it 7/8”. It is tight. I’m just concerned by twisting the loop it might move the lower knock set. I guess it s a trip back cause they will have to press the bow and use twist for the peep I assume

nuts&bolts. You are dead right. I can easily twist the loop to the right to get it even. Problem is the peep is way left. So no doubt I need a press. Looks like I’ll have to back. For some reason he told me he couldn’t get the peep correct with twist. So I can’t stand this **** anymore. U r right sloppy work. Time for me to get a press. If I tighten loop any more he’ll is will go over an inch. Looks like I’ll have to tie on another loop set. Frustrating to say the least.

If he didn’t tighten it down can u still keep the same loop and use this special pliers with teeth of tie a new one on? Just seems like my loop will be double what it is now.
