    Default D-Loop Lower Knot Keeps Rotating

    I don't think this is anything more than an annoyance but just the same. The lower knot will spin around on the string while the upper not stays put. I have tried spreading it with a needle nose pliers, pulling on it and shooting it but it keeps slipping. Is there something I can do?

    Super Glue. I did it on my D-loop and have not had a problem since.

    When I was at the shop getting my string put back on, the shop owner tied the loop and used needle nose pliers to tighten them up, then he put the loop on the bow scale and pulled the knot on that while holding the string. I think he got the scale upwards of 100 lbs. My knots have not moved.

    MLN1963, can you take a photo of it? I have never have a problem with the loop turning and I just use my release aid to stretch it. What d-loop material and what serving do you use?

    I'll get a pic of it. I'm pretty sure it is BCY but what I don't know. Just asked for some d loop string and he cut some off a roll. It was a buck a foot is all I remember.

    I think it's the operator.
