Anybody ever had any work done at Poindexters? Just got my bow back. Got a new string and cable put on and I'm having to use my 50 yd pin to hit at 20yds. I expected to have to make some adjustments. And my rest is so out of time it's ripping my fletchings off. Hope I didn't just waste over 100 bones just to have to go pay somebody else even more to fix it.

I would be taking it back, and pray that they will fix it or refund your money. I've only had warranty work done there. Friendly and personable people, but they are a fishing shop that sells bows on the side—not always the best combination. I've always had to straighten out and redo everything they have done once I got home. If I didn't have the equipment and the knowledge to do my own work here I would be giving Matt at EnergyWave a call—he does great work and makes the best string out there in my opinion. If I'm not mistaken, he is still charging $55 locally with the string installed, setup and tuned.

Wow! I feel like I got ripped off now. I'm taking it back here in a few. The guy on the phone said "they don't tune them when they restring them". I wouldn't be bringing my bow to be restrung if I had the equipment to "tune" it.thanks guys.

Dang cozy....that is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard coming from any "shop"—hope you get it worked out!

What kind of string did they sell you...America's Best?

Just got back. He moved my rest cord down a lil bit on the cable which helped quite a bit. Still tore a fletching off at home. Every time I shoot a group they are low and right. Also none of them are hitting the target at the same angle. Got some work to do now before season starts. I could keep em in 3in groups at 35 yds before all this.

Ok , now that you have given them their chance . Write them off and take it to Matt he won't let you leave without it being right . And make sure to try your next set of strings through him .
