    Mine was shooting bullets. I let it sit for several months and then took it out. i couldn't hit a 10" plate at 30 yards. Come to find out the d loop had moved and the fletch's were hitting the string. The alan screws loosened up letting the rod rotate. Turned it back and tightened up the alan screws, and fixed the serving under the d loop. It seems like bows are in a constant state of tune.

    Hey Polaris754, Here is an odd thing to check. Check at full draw and see if you have any cam or idler lean, also limb twist. Just a shot in the dark but after sitting a while it might have changed and that would causing side to side string oscillation. Also are the groups you are having, up and down or side to side. Arrows hitting up and down are usually string and rest problems. Arrows side to side are usually clearance issues or string oscillation.

    I wonder how many times the bow was shot b4 you discovered the stripped screw. You may have cycled the bow several times and the buggered up screw may have damaged the cam bearing by forcing pressure to one side or at least may have affected the way the cam rotated during cycle. 2nd, I too had an experience with a rod, but mine cracked inside the sleave of the riser. Everytime I drew the bow the cable slide acted differently. Good Luck.

    cjchasman has another very good point here, the rod it will change everything in the way a bow shoots.

    All of the above, plus check for clearance on your rest, maybe your nocking point is to low or to high now, due maybe to some string stretch. How i check for fletching clerance after seting my nocking point is by simply spraying foot powder on the last 6" of the arrow or you could just spray it on the rest......

    Bet those arrows don't have athletes feet.
