Default I need help with my bow.....

Ok, its shooting dead on at 30 yards... So sighting in isnt the issue. The issue is that the fletchings are cutting the string. Not the string you pull back, but the other one... I tried adjusting the thing with the slide on it, but when I do that, the main string tries to jump the cam track. It jumped off one day and pulled a muscle in my thumb. I wish I could explain a little better. I dont know whats wrong. Its the string that crosses the other one and makes an x shape. And like I said, when I try to adjust them to be just slightly out of the way, the string jumps the track when i pull back. Any ideas??

What type of rest are you using? What direction is your **** feather facing? Have you set up your centershot and papertuned your bow? Sounds like either you are shooting with the **** feather faced the wrong way or more likely your rest is not adjusted correctly.

Your rubbing your cable. Maybe if you could post a pic it would help.

Is your WB of design that has mainly brown whiskers and black whiskers on the bottom for the arrow to rest on? If so, just make sure that you are not sending fletching through the black section, it is stiffer and could possible effect arrow flight. May not see it with field points, but with broad heads... Sounds like it may be worth while to take it to a shop and have them give it the once over...
