    You can take this advise for what it cost you, nothing. This "bow tech" is clueless.

    A press is nice but turning the fastners isn't hurting or wearing anything out. He just doesn't have that option with his bow so he doesn't know any better. I wonder how highly his employer, Fastenal, would think of him knowing he has no faith in a bolt?

    Use nylon tip set screws.

    I'm still experiencing this. I can shoot as little as 20-25 shots and the bolts will back out about 30*-40*. This is with the set screws in place. Both brass and nylon tipped. It is really starting to annoy the hell out of me.

    Don't know what else to tell ya. I thought we had this problem solved. I guess your bow is an exception. There must be some vibration you're not feeling.

    That is the thing Barry. Earlier I posted that I wasn't even firing it, just doing draw cycles to settle the peep and the bolts backed out. So it happens at slow speeds or fast. I just don't get it.

    I thought you got it fixed guess i was wrong............Ok this what you need to do take some gas line teflon tape wrap it about 4-6 times around limb bolt then put back together go slow until you get to your poundage,once your set pull off remaining tape,should be nice and tight.

    Normally its the vibration that cause them to move.
