    Default martin "Rack Attack" Bow (Exile??) TRG strung wrong???

    First let me gripe about the grade school pamphlet that accompanied my new bow. The information is cursory at best, and the diagrams are worse. No weapon should be sold with such a dearth of information.
    It DID however come with a one page insert about improper adjustment of the TRG. It has 2 really crappy photos that make it seem that the "expert" at Dicks Sporting goods actually strung the TRG incorrectly when he changed my draw length.
    Can someone explain, or point me to an illustration that shows the TRG and how it should be strung?
    There is a split string that attaches to the upper limb. The other is the "top half" of the shooting string. Which string is on the "outside" of the TRG? Where do the strings cross? Above or below the TRG?
    HELP!

    Default and another thing-

    The two illustrations in the "manual" actually contradict each other as to the position of the shooting string and split string.
    Looking at the side of the bow, on the TRG side, the split string should be on the outer bracket of the TRG. It crosses the shooting string below the TRG and the split string is OUTSIDE of the shooting string.
    My bow is the opposite and the strings touch below the TRG and each string twists when I draw the bow back.
    AM I RIGHT?

    Default Yes 19 pages. Not even 2 pages about my bow.

    He was changing the "draw length module" and got the split string on the wrong side of the shooting string. They cannot ride in the TRG this way. The strings touch below the TRG.
    I need confirmation of the setup because the photos of the TRG (amateur btw) and the drawing of the "single cam string diagram" (mismarked btw) show 2 different things.

    The downward moving cable should be on the outboard side of the TRG and the upward moving cable inside the TRG. As you draw the bow you will see which goes what direction. The bottom line is if the cable rubs against itself you have it backwards.
