    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.
