    Default Serving separating?

    My serving is separating at both knots on my loop after only 100 shots. Not coming apart but sliding apart on the string. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Mine did the same thing on my FC400. I showed it to my bow guy, and he said it wasn't anything to worry about. Mine was due to twisting the D-loop up and down the string to adjust nock heigth as I tuned the bow. It seperated under the upper loop knot, but not the bottom. He said it's from tightening the knot down too well before making sure it was where it blonged.

    Time to learn to center serve,its not that hard to do.Took a few times to get it right.
    But that will be the end result sooner or later.

    IMO this is due to the center serving not being served tight enough. What happens is that over time the serving wraps get squeezed together at the bending point and the loop can now force it's way between the wraps of serving. I can assure you it's not from over tightening the loop. The loop knots should be tight enough to keep the loop from turning at the shot and for that it has to be TIGHT.

    If the center serving is wrapped tight enough the wrap actually compresses itself and will have less of a tendency to separate.

    Looked at it today in better light and it looks like it just separated at the bottom loop knot. The loop is tight. After serving it they put it on the bow scale and pull it tight. The loop doesn't turn on the string and the gap is maybe less than an 1/8 inch. Looks as if the bottom knot is still on the serving though.

    Doesn't sound like anything to worry about. But pick your self up a serving kit. Bohning makes one they aren't expensive. http://cgi.ebay.com/Bohning-Archery-...item483ee9d2dd
    This has all you need and a cd to show you how and you won't be going to the shop.
