Ok as you all know put new strings on today and found my ATA to be off by almost an 1/8 on the quiver side before and after string change. I now after many attempts and walking away from it have the ATA at 32 centered on both sides. The string at full draw and relaxed is centered on the idler groove now. Does this mean that all should be alright in the archery world now? Maybe it's my eyes and the way I'm looking at it but the upper limb still looks a bit twisted but the tape doesn't lie. Put an arrow on and it all lines up over the shelf with the rest again as well. Thanks for any and all input.

I would think so, but it seemed to me that in your 3rd pic in your post about your new string that when at full draw that the string would be centered in the idler grove, as I posted. But then what do I know my bows have two cams, and long A t A's. :cool:

Here is mine, no comments from the peanut gallery on the strings. I have a new set waiting for hunting to end.

Yep yours looks straight and true but Ihave to agree with ES4x5 that something looks crooked with the idler itself but it shoots good and I didn't do anything but change the strings. Oh well it is what it is until I can get it to the local guy to look it over. If he determines it's out of whack guess I'll contact Martin about the idler maybe being crooked or out of sorts. Enough brain cells wasted on it this weekend, lol thank goodness all tags filled.

One of the pictures shows the string looking like it coming off the idler a little off center. Did you try spinning the idler without the string on? Maybe the axle has a slight bend to it.

@ moneyman nope didn't think of that possibility but when can get in a press may have to check that out.

@ moneyman nope didn't think of that possibility but when can get in a press may have to check that out.Easy way to check is to use a small square and lay it on the idler and against the limb. Do both sides it will show you if the idler is the problem or the limb.

Good point, but spinning the idler will not tell you if the axle is bent as the axle doesn't turn. It will show if the idler is bent or warped though.

Whatever the problem ends up being it should be addressed. The string looks like it's beginning to fray somewhat and that is not what we are looking for. This is where some guys get the idea that the strings are crap and think they need to replace them or serve that area. That's not the answer. The answer is to get the string tracking correctly and/or sand any sharp edges in the idler groove.

@ Hutch squared the idler both sides numerous positions and all is good in the squared world. Going to the shop after work tomorrow but think I got a handle on it now. @ bfisher don't know why that look showed up but I see what you're talking about. Checked idler and no sharp edges smooth as a baby's behind waxed it all up and have drawn it numerous times and it looks good but thanks for the good eye

Well hope all things go well at the Pro shop parttimr. I forgot about using the square on the idler. Done it many times and at least it shows you if it is or not. And you sound a little more confident. Soon you will be back shooting. WHOO HOOOOO!!
