A buddy of mine just got new strings installed at a local shop. Install included peep and d-loop. We were shooting the other day and noticed at full draw that the string around the peep seems to have slack in it, to the point that you can see the strands slightly separate.

After the shot, they return to normal of course.

What's causing this?

Is the peep rotating at draw?

My first guess would be uneven tension on the strands at layout. 90deg of turn would be an incredible amount. Even close to that is too much.

Is this something that will settle over time with more shooting? Or is this just an inferior string and/or string builder?

Either that or one end wasn't tied off correctly and has slipped.

I don't think it will "settle over time". Who built the string?

It's a local shop... don't want to mention their name just yet because he'd like to speak with them first. They are a Mathews and Hoyt dealer and we both heard good things about their strings and bow techs prior to this.

Agree....Won't settle and he should contact the builder.
