    Looks like the knots are on the same side, there is your problem.

    Loops are not on the same side. Top side of the loop is over, lower side is under.

    Under eye-ball magnification it doesn't look like that! LOL

    Sonny, I made them big just for you!

    So why is i moving?

    Looked like the melted ends are on the same side in those photos.

    You are correct. I don't know how I managed that and had the loop on the opposite sides? I bet if I fix that it will hold correctly!

    That is why they say get an extra set of eyes on it. I have looked at that many times and never caught that. I just looked at which side the loop came off. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Edit: corrected the knot.

    After hunting season I will replace the whole thing including strings and cables. I just don't want to mess with that 3 weeks out. I have too many other things going on.

    Well I just couldn't leave it alone. I took everything off and reserved it. I put the d-loop on without soft nocks this time. I wanted to be able to spin the d-loop up and down to fine tune nock location.

    I made sure I really have the center serving tight. Between the new serving and new arrow nocks they are fitted just right.

    Knocked the big stuff out today. Will finalize testing tomorrow.

    Thanks for the help/motivation guys.

    I need to get everything tweaked for these new arrows and then do broad head testing. First I need to build a broad head target. Man, time is flying! I am taking a couple classes that involve a lot of reading and I am not getting any of the fun stuff done! Good thing archery season is 3 months long!
