    Default Arrows lifting on draw

    Been having a little issue with this and have a feeling it is my release. I have a Trufire 3D hunter that I am shooting and the head is supposed to spin freely. I am almost certain that when I am drawing back the head isn't swiveling to the level position when I am drawing back, thus putting torque on the loop/string which is then transferring to the nock causing the shaft to at times lift or want to jump out of my rest before I get to full draw.

    Anyone else have any experiences with this shooting hand-helds? I have no desire to go back to a trigger, but don't recall this ever happening with that release. Also, didn't notice this really when I was shooting my Apache (cage) vs the Limb Driver (wide open). If it is the release, I could easily look into getting another that will help eliminate this problem. It doesn't happen all the time, but has been enough that I have to watch the arrow and make sure it isn't travelling funny.

    I had this problem before,sometimes the d-loop can be to tight and cause your arrow to bounce up and off.Also had a rest do this on my AX,do to the draw cycle it would kick the arrow up.But i had 2 other rest that didnt do it at all.Hope this help's.

    What type of rest are you using and have you changed rests?

    Your DLoop is to tight at full draw. It is just pinching it and raising it up.

    X2......thats the kind of thing that gets an arrow through your hand! Nock and arrow and turn it from side to side.........it should move freely without the string turning.

    That's the same release I use, haven't had any issues with it yet. Once a month I tone it up with a little graphite.

    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    Good call guys. I was wondering if this was another part of the problem. Didn't think about it much but I have a nock set tied in on the cheetah and went raw loop on this bow ... little things that are easy to over look. will post back once I get them in and if it keeps acting up.

    @welder - didn't change rests, different rest on a different bow. Alien - Limb Driver (jumping) Cheetah - Apache

    the d-loop knots for the arrow nock are to close together, or at least thats what makes mine rise up off the rest ever now and then, i don't think it is your release!
