I bought a new cheetabow, and had the local archery shop put in a peep sight.
I then installed a D loop my self. Evert time i draw the bow the string twists
and the peep is off. How do i fix this.

You need to take the string off and give it a half twist or untwist to bring the peep back in line

you might try just twisting the "D" loop on your string first. Your loop will force the peep into the correct position when you draw the bow back.

If I have a peep rotate, during the draw, even if it ends up aligned, I replace the string.

I won't tolerate an unstable string.

There might be a way to stop it, and I have just been throwing away perfectly good strings, but I haven't been able to get a string that rotates the peep, to stop doing it.

Good luck! I've got a Moab and the string is incapable of a tubeless peep or the peep that splits the string in 3. Best off to get a new aftermarket string H&M makes a hell of a string for a lot less than the other big names.

I've had one Doc. A 2009 Moab that was a real PITA. I finally got fed up with it and tried something. I removed the string, then removed the center serving. Then added about 20 twists to the thing, stretched it out and put new center serving on as tight as I could get it. Lo and behold the darn thing settled down after a hundred shots or so. Then I was able to point my fletcher straight back and it then drew straight back---for a while. Eventually it turned a bit but only about ten degrees. 1/2 twist of the string put it back on track. Then I sold the bow.

Was the center serving wound the wrong direction?

Heck, I don't know which direction it was wound. Main reason I cahnged it was because of the size. It was too big and the nocks were tight as hell. One thing, among many others, that I will not tolerate are nocks that are too tight. Just one of those many details I like to attend to before I even try to tune a bow.

The only equipment failure that has ever cost me a deer, was an arrow nock breaking on the shot.

To add insult to injury, it bounced off my top limb and hit me in the face!

Another thing to check is the Idler, make sure it is square with the top limb and straight, alot of times the idler will lean and no matter what twisting you do to the string the peep will continue to rotate. Check the idler, you should have to add 4=5 twists to the right side of the buss cable yoke at the top limb to bring it back to level. Then add a half twist to your shooting string in the direction you need to bring the peep back around. Should fix you up.

When you say the right side of the bus cable yoke are you looking from the back side of the bow or the front side of the bow
