    Ok so last Thursday a buddy dry fired my new creed, twice!  I had a new string put on but now my cam. alignment hole is no longer center and my peep is cocked to the side. Should I have my dealer twist my string ?image

    Shoot the new string for awhile and give it time to settle, 200-400 shots should do it … new strings/cables stretch as part of the settling in process. Then take it into your dealer.

    In the mean time, keep checking the limbs for slivering by rubbing a cotton ball over them. Once in a while, inspect the riser, especially at the sharp angles of the riser cutout, and the limbs for cracks. I’ve had dry fired bows go 6 months before problems developed.

    Many bowtechs will setup the cam to be over rotated so that when the cable settles in it will be in the center of the timing window. From the picture, it doesn’t look like your bowtech did that.

    U r right archer, they did not set it up properly, however I took it to my retailer this morning after reading your article on timing. Which was very helpful!!! And I had him inspect it for cam lean , ata, knock shoulder height, and timing. I did not however shoot the recommended 2-400 arrows b4 taking it to him to allow for string stretch, but i must have sent at least 80-90 down range. but I followed your advice and had him turn it .5 turns extra as to allow for string stretch. If I need it to b adjusted at all I can take it back and they will do all labor for free since I purchased from there. I will take your advice and rub alcohol across the limbs regularly and visually inspect constantly while shooting.

    Thanks again archer for your Help and info. I know it takes time out of your day to do what u do for us. I enjoy reading your articles although sometimes I get a little confused I’m alway able to put it together. Keep me coming. I welcome all the info and help I can get. It makes me more efficient and teaches me the proper way to maintain a bow

    May have been a autocorrect in your post. But, rub your limbs with a cotton ball not alcohol to check for cracks. Alcohol could mess up your finish.

    {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up} … the cotton ball will snag on even the most  minute sliver on a limb, probably before it is readily visible.
