    Yup Elkslayer I was aware of that. Its one of the reasons I bought it. My other bow doesnt need a press either. Im amazed at what a work of art this thing is.Flawless!

    One more question for now. I just noticed when backing out the limb bolts that I only have the really wide axles on the top and not the bottom. Is that right?

If I just untwist the string wouldnt I have to untwist the cables a bit so theres proper tension on the string?
    For now I would just take some twists out of the string and see what happens. When the cables are left along and the string is twisted it does a few things. It shortens the draw length and it decreases the draw weight range of the bow. It also shortens the a2a and raises the brace height. So untwisting the string should do the opposite.

    Something else you can do is measure the a2a on both sides of the limbs. They should be exactly the same if the cables are twisted evenly.

    MIne are the oppisite, wide axle on bottom. The idea behind the one wide axle is to seperate the cables where they meet, reducing wear and tear. What it does do is you give more vibrating cables, Keeping the cables well waxed is a better answer, quieter.

    Is there a problem with mine being on top,should I change it? I untwisted my string a bunch and now am at 39 15/16"ATA. My brace is at 7 1/2". Untwisting the string definitly helped the ATA but the brace is still long which is weird. You would think since my ATA is only a 1/16 off then my brace would be the same(at least thats my thinking). My weight actually went down one pound to a #51max on a #55 bow.
