    Default peep rotating

    my 2010 pantera developed a problem,when holding my bow in front of me my peep is facing me like it should. but when i draw the bow the peep rotates to the left so i am looking at the side of the peep instead of looking through it.this happened this morning when i had a nice 8 pointer walk past at 30 yrd's.shot a doe yesterday the bow was fine.shot a spike wed. no problem.any help would be appreciated .this is a first for me.i've been shooting a peep for 35 yr's.and never had this happen.by the way it's a meta peep.

    Check the string for loose servings or broken strands. Either of these things will allow the string to twist when being pulled.

    How old are the strings? Like Hutch says, give them a good look over and consider replacing if still stock from a 2010. That or I'd call it bad karma for shooting a spike

    Maybe the bow's tired, and wants the day off? All kidding aside, sounds like something has given or broke, like Hutch said, check for loose serving and/or a broken strand.

    i had the string/cable replaced last may(2012).checked for broken strands which was my first thought but they look fine as do the servings.a matthews tec replaced the string/cables.he had said they weren't exactly the same but he said he could make them work,a twist here a twist there and there you go. i sure wish we had a good martin dealer around here. i have to say that pantera is the slickest bow i ever owned.to bad all the local dealers look down their nose at martin.

    At this point the only thing I can thing of is the builder didn't serve the serving in the same direction as the twists in the string. This will cause the rotation you are talking about. Also do you have idler serving? That is usually the main reason for peep rotation. The serving on the idler usually will allow the string material to roll after awhile. Talk to the person you bought it from. They might be your answer.
