just got my new pentera about a week ago and having a few problems . to start with the first thing i noticed was the hand grip was torn at a seam. I figured no big deal i can live with it. Next, i replaced the draw length module for my draw and the screw holes don't line up, and couldnt get the screws in. Again, no big deal I did a little filing and in the screws went. I followed the basic setup per the instructions and noticed there was only a plastic washer on the arrow rest mount which would allow the rest to be moved too easily if bumped. Once again, no big deal, and I fixed the problem with a metal washer. After the basic setup, fired some arrows and noticed the drop away rest wast never in the same place twice at full draw. The cord locking mechanism kept sliding on the cable a little bit with every draw. eventually the rest would barely lift the arrow. I crimped on a brass nock above the cord and another problem solved., But I also noticed one of the cables wasen't even on the pulley. Grrrr.. I fixed the cable take some more shots and boy this thing sure is LOUD!!! I decide to do a little paper tuning and the arrows are tearing huge 4" tears. Make adjustments and I can't even get it close. plus the nock cord keeps sliding up on the string. I think I must have done something wrong so I take it to bass pro and have the guy set it up with all his fancy lazers and stuff, but he's real buzy so I can't try it out there. Take it home, same thing. real noisey, and tearing big holes in the paper, and the nock won't hold it's position. I put on a metal nock with screws thinking this will clamp down good, plus I can move it anywhere I want, I do some real drastic adjusting, and it starts to get close, but the nock and arrow rest are so far out of whack something must be wrong with this thing. The noc is higher than I think it should be, and the arrow rest down and left. And the noc still moves a little with every shot. Definitely not right. Almost like the string is too slippery. I need a little help before I throw this thing in the garbage.
