I haven't, don't want to put the limbs off balance, and am comfortable with the draw weight at the moment. I'll get this nock situation fixed and see if that works first.

I think Mudbone and I got it figured out, the nock is in line with the rest, but the nock is too high on the string... gonna fix that soon and see if the problem is corrected. I think a peep sight and new kisser button are in order as well... I'm not saying Bowriter had it set up wrong, it's just different from what I feel comfortable shooting.... I am learning a bit about bows now, that's for sure

Nock position can change with shooting after initial setup. Take it to a pro shop .

crank down those limbs...turn up the wont get as much drop.

Depends if he has the strength to hold it back as to whether or not he should turn it up.

Have you tried turning it up catman?

It also depends on if he has shot enough to develop good form. if not, the the more speed, the more critical the bow. Speed is not often, in fact is seldom, the answer to shooting problems.

As for how the bow is/was setup, I probably had not shot that bow in a few years. The nock could easily have moved as well as everything else. As I said a year or so ago, the first thing it needs is a good tuning.

I handled a very similar problem for a guy in PA a few days ago. His bow would shoot perfect for the first 50 or so shots, then it got way off at 20. The problem was evident to me immediately, he was shooting too much. As soon as I made him quit shooting after 20 shots, he had no problems. He was just getting tired and his form was suffering. In fact, all he was doing was dropping his bow arm from fatique. It aint always the equipment.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.
