Guys I will admit I was wrong. I played with it some more today and got it. Arrows are flying straight and true and i am hitting where I aim. This was a tuning issue and I kinda feel embarrassed for not messing with it more before I asked a question. I cranked it back up to 60 lbs and arrows still fly nice.
It was centershot but that doesn't seem to be all. Where the centershot ended up being set on my graduated slide of my Apache rest, was where I had it a few times in frustation and ended up moving it. It was a combo of centershot and form i guess. All I know is I started using a high grip. I don't have to do this with my old martin but with this one I shoot much better that way. At full draw I lift my heel off the saddle and the only part making contact is the skin between my thumb and index finger. My guess is that with full heel contact I was torquing my bow even though I was opening my hand. I also think using a high grip helps me follow through better. I just know at full draw I lift my hand on the saddle and shoot and the arrows fly straight to where I aim. Sometimes I throw the shot though. This is the most finicky bow I have ever shot. Not very forgiving at all. I am much more accurate and consistent with my 97 speed demon. But this bow is a blast to shoot.
Sounds like you are still in the "getting to know you" phase. I'm like that still with my Alien. It is so incredibly different from my Cheetah that it takes a lot of getting used to. I shoot the Cheetah lights out, just haven't quite got there with the Alien yet. Good to see you got it figured out and your finger on a plan for what the problem is/was.
These saddleback grips do take some getting used to. I had some fits going from the fat grip of my Saber to the narrow grip on my Onza. But once you get it figured out, man! These new grips are awesome!
