2000 Phantom loss of power issue
I've got a 2000 Phantom that appears to be pulling only 55# with the limbs cranked all the way down when it SHOULD be 70#.
Here's what would seem to be a noob question, but I've never owned a single bow for this long.
1#: Do limbs have a tendency to weaken over time?
2#: can I still get replacement parts for a 10 year old bow?
I have since checked the axle to axle measurement and it seems to be about 1/2" longer than spec & the brace height is about 3/16" under spec.
Would string & yoke stretch account for 15lbs of dw loss?
Alone probably not but that in conjunction w/ cams not being orientated properly could. What cams are on it?

Got a call from Joel today. He told me to check my string & cable lengths... Lo and behold they were both about an inch longer than spec!
I put twists in both to get them closer to spec. Re-assembled. Got damn near to spec on AtA length and BH.
... still only pulling 55# at full crank down... grrrrr

Mystery solved. I took the bow to Bass Pro Shop and checked on their scale. My new scale appears to be over 10# off.
Thanks for all the help y'all. :-)
