I have a 2011 Diamond Outlaw and recently the string has started to twist clockwise. Right now it's about 150 degrees off( holding the bow in hand it has spun to the left).... Would that throw my arrows off to the left? I have had my bow set since before season last year, but this morning I'm off by 6 in at 30 yds

Im no expert, but it sounds like your string has stretched and that can cause accuracy issues.

That is what it sounds like to me also. Although a 1 year old string should not have stretched to that extent. Have you shot it much this year? Because leaving it in the case since end of last bow season will cause it to stretch. Especially if left in a hot closet.

Thanks guys for the info. The bow sits in my garage which I guess heats up some. I don't shoot much in the spring but I shoot once it starts warning up. I've recently noticed it getting worse. I will have it fixed this weekend.

Find someone to build you a set of custom string and cables.Archery Talk has a few there that will help you.
I leave mine cased in the garage all year with no problem with streatched strings.I use ProLine strings.

There is a guy here in the Nashville area that has a string company and he makes a great string and it won't break the bank. His quality is just as good as the"big" boys and his warranty far exceeds them as well. His strings are on all my bows and several of my friend's bows as well.Energywavebowstrings.com

I don't see any reason the stretch or creep would cause it to shoot consistently left. If you have any stretch it will affect your accuracy greatly. My guess is if you have the original hostage rest on the bow your bottom brush could be wearing out. Just a guess.
