    They got here tuesday.. good turn around. only had one small problum top limb fit too tightly on riser. checked the distance from hole to butt end on limbs and sure enough top limb was .01 to long so a little sanding block work and it all good now. son likes it and shot it well for his 1st round. 35# is perfect for him to get his form and release down.

    I took a small diamond rat tail file that I had bought some time ago at Harbor frieght and filed all the corners that the string goes around on the bow tips. I think I smoothed out the groove that the string is in on the limbs. Also used some folded 400 grit sand paper. Not much, it just gave the string a little more radius on the corners. Seems to make the serving stay on better. I was going through strings fast. Serving was breaking at the edges.
