    Have a question with how my cam looks tilted a little.  If you look at the pic it looks like my strings are running off the edge of the cam. What exactly does this mean?

    Its a ’13 Creed.¬† Sorry for the bad cellphone pic.

    Most bows will have a degree of cam lean some more than others. Yours does not appear to be very severe at all, and I wouldn’t worry about it unless the cable scrapes the sides of the cable groove when the bow is being drawn.¬† Shoot straight!!

    Yes there is some rubbing on the cam. Looks like the serving has a flat spot in it where the string rides on the edge of the cam after the shot.

    I took the bow into the shop and they told me they would send it in because it looks to them that the limbs are uneven/weak. Has anyone else had their limbs replaced and were you happy with the way it shot afterwards. I love this bow and hope there is not any real issues but it sucks to be without the bow for a couple of weeks.  Season starts soon and all I want to do is shoot, shoot, shoot! This bow has really turned on the addiction!

    I have heard of a few of these issues, though not many in the grand scheme of things. The faster turn-around way would be for your retailer to get the parts and do the change instead of sending the bow in. Probably much shorter down-time, just a thought. Once fixed, your bow should shoot like a dream again!!

    Got the bow back today! They put all new limbs on and everything is back to looking good.  Shoots smooth like always, but arrows are flying a lot better. Thanks Mathews!

    Is there any reason that having the bow set at peak weight(68-70#) would stress the limbs out? Can I feel confident in having the bow set that high or is it safer to hold around 5#’s less than peak weight? Probably a stupid question, but I want to get the most out of the bow for a long¬†time period.

    Don’t worry about stressing the limbs when keeping your bow at max weight. ¬†Just shoot and enjoy your bow. ¬†There are guys that keep a bow for 10 years and never have a limb issue. ¬† Glad to hear they got you fixed up and ready to go before hunting season. ¬†I have heard of several people keeping their bows 1/4 to 1/2 turn backed off but it isn’t for limb stress I believe it is for keeping your limb bolt from sticking or maybe help freeing a stuck limb bolt.
