I purchased this bow last Nov., with everything I read on this post and others concerning peep twist with this double helix ugly yellow string I got a "custom" string.I am still open fof another..I shoot every day,,with 2 diff.bows..My question is that I read somewhere I could back out my limb bolts to change this string?? I"m not exactly new to bow shooting and tuning ,so this sounds kinda goofy to me...Yes, commom sense tells me to have a bow shop do it,but I would like to learn to do this myself,obviously I do not have a press...Thank-you

Welcome!
Take note of how your string and cable are routed or take a pic. Then back out the limb bolts equal, a few times on one side then the other. Till you see the bottom of the bolts in the barrel nuts on the riser. Once you replace the string reverse the procedure. Than check your ATA and bh if they are to specs you are okay to go. If not repeat the procedure and shorten or lengthen the cable and or string accordingly by twisting or untwisting.

You can change strings yourself, you'll need to back the limb bolts out about 2 turns at a time, alterating between top and bottom while watching inside the barrel nuts untill you see the ends of the bolts appear inside the barrel nut, this will take enough tension off the limbs/strings that you should be able to slip the old string/cable off and install the new set. Just be carefull doing it this way and take your time and all should go well.

Not slow just learning. ;) When you are done your axle to axle should be set to specs that should put your brace height at the correct specs.

Your cams are held to the limbs via axles. The axle goes thru the center(ish) of the cams/idler and thru the limbs. If there were no torque on the bow limbs from a CCS/TRG/slider the distance from each axle would be the same on both the left and right ends of the axle. E.G. 32"

Twisting the string and or cables affects the length of them. More twists equal a shorter string, less equal longer. The cables and string are manipulated thru twisting to get the desired results, the proper axle to axle (A2A) length and Brace Height (BH).

The real experts can help you get what you need. I know just enough to be dangerous at this point. :cool:

Welcome to the forums. I see you don't like know-it-alls. If that's the case you should feel good about this place. There are a lot of us on here that know a lot, but with this sport evolving we'll never know it all. Those of us that do know so much only do because we've been shooting and tinkering for a very long time. Several of us have enjoyed this sort and helping others is our way of giving something back. In doing so we sometimes give advice, saying essentially the same thing, but in different words. We realize this and get along like a family with very little bickering. You are welcome to join the family. Learn and enjoy.
