Possibly idler wheel leaning. Or it could be too stiff a shaft. Or it could be too weak of a shaft spine. Or it could be you torquing the bow.

Try posting details about your setup. And go to and download their tuning guide for more detailed help.

Sounds like a weak shaft. Reduce your draw weight by one turn an see if that corrects the problem. If so, you must keep this draw weight, reduce the weight of your tips or purchase new arrows if you like the draw weight where it is and don't want to replace tips and broadheads.
