so now that its settled it does not do the same thing every shot? thats what im understanding is about every 10th shot it does something wild with twist
If your peep and your nock are both rotating, then your string is trying to work out an imbalance in the number of twists on either side of the idler. Somewhere in the process of installing the new strings, one end of the string got twisted more than the other and the string is trying to work out that imbalance with each shot. Its a frustrating problem to have, but the solution is straightforward. :smile:I finally broke down and tried my first string installation on my Switchback. I got it installed, timed the cam and yoke, and got my nock point and loop and peep all installed and tied in. I shot the bow around 70 or more times to get my string settled. Believe it or not, it wasn't too hard for a first timer. I used LeEarl's dvd and some instructions online for Mathews bows that made it very easy.
Here is my problem. I can get the peep back in line twisting the string, but after 8 or 10 shots, it twists bad to my left (i'm a right hand shooter) and so does my loop. It gets out of line so bad, I can't even see through it. What can I do to correct this, it's making me pull my hair out? Thanks a million in advance.
