My son got a 2010 Saber for Christmas,it has the green stings on it.He has shot about 500 arrows through it and on the string above the peep has begun to flatten out a little right up to the top pulley.The peep also has started to turn after a few shots. Any help to this problem ? Thanks

It is not unusual for a string to flatten with the new wider idler wheels. What needs to be done is the string needs to be twisted one turn the same way it is twisted. This will put the string back in a bundle. It also will bring the peep back.

I took it to an archery shop and they put a few twist in the strings. It bundled back together,but after a few shots at home it flattened out a little but not as bad as before,

It still is not twisted enough. I build strings and if there is not enough twists they will lay flat. You can twist it yourself. You don't need a bow press. Just back out the limb bolts equally 2 turns on one 2 turns on the other. Till the string goes limp. Then undo one end and twist it WITH THE TWIST. Approximately 5 twists. Then put the limb bolts back to where they were. If the peep lines back up you are good to go. If not just add one more. We will help you any way we can. Just keep asking and we keep answering.

I did not know that you could back out on the limb bolts enough to take off the string.About how many turns will it take to get the string off ? Thanks for answering my questions . Greg

About 11 turns. Here's the trick. The limb bolts thread into steel barrel nuts located near the end of the riser. If you look in from the side you can see the threads of the bolts. When backing off the bolts just watch for some daylight showing through the barel nut. This should happen at about 10 turns.

As you do it you'll see it's pretty straight forward and simple.

Try 10:00pm don't know why it shows 7:30pm. But its was later than that. Besides 4:30 am comes too quickly. :D

The time shown for posts is the only thing on this board I don't trust. it's 9:11 am as I type this, and what time does it say it was posted?

9:07am. That's only a couple minutes.

Hey Hutch. Do you have your time corrected for your time zone in the User CP section? Unless I'm missing something your post said 5:50 and you said it was about 10:00, four hours off, roughly.

Still I usually go to bed about 11:30pm and still wake up between 5:30am and 6:00am and I'm retired. Heck, it's still dark when I get up with nothing to do except drink coffee and dink around on the puter. I gotta get a life.

My UserCP is set for Eastern Time, but as I type this it is 2:16pm, not 11:11am. Hmmm... I think it is showing the correct time for Pacific Time, not Eastern time.:confused:

Barry I think it is time for a new web site / forum for all us guys. I have the correct time zone but it is far off from the correct time.

OK, something isn't right. I have 4:21pm on my puter and this coinsides with all my closcks yet the posts shows 1:16pm.

You're right Hutch. Must be time for an overhaul. I'm going to try something else.

OK, I just changed the time 4 hours in my User PC and it didn't change the time on my last post. It's obviously screwed up. Another thing we'll have to live with, along with the spam, till the site is overhauled.

Hmm... Just set the time so that your post is displayed with the correct time. No matter of the time zone you have to select?!

I see my posts in the correct time now. Which means 23:14 or 11:14 pm as you would say. (Just add the missing 5 minutes inside your head.. ;) )

That's what I was doing Simon. I wwent into my CP and changed the time 4 hrs up and 4 hours down from where I live and nothing changed. It looks like the posts are all displayed in GMT (Grenwich Mean Time).

Yep, like I said the only thing I don't trust is time posted. But back to that Saber's string flattening out, Aren't those the Hammerhead strings, and shouldn't they allready be twisted up pretty well?

They should be, but it sounds like this was an exception.
