I started shooting my bow a little more frequently again a few weeks ago. My cousin had purchased a bow about the same time as me a few years ago and he mentioned he is getting his string replaced this week. I got to thinking my bow has had a issue for about a year now with fish tailing arrows I had it in 2 shops changed a couple hundred dollars in things to have the same problems. So yesterday I broke down and took my bow into a 3rd shop to have it looked at maybe different opinion. And little closer to my work. They tried changing the slide guide I believe it's called to get more fletching clearance it's now on its 3 rd one. Then he changed the knocking point slightly raised it. Made a few adjustments and got it to paper test clean. He asked how old my string is I told him I'd say at least a few years old. Now I thought my string was in great condition it looked really good to me but he suggested I change it. So I went ahead and left the bow to be worked on. Now this brings to mind how often are you changing out your string? What other maintenance are you doing to your compound bow and how often? This is my first bow it shot really good when I first got it. Killed 2 deer first 3 months I owned it. It just hasn't shot the same this last year. I take great care of it it's been stored in a case. Never been dropped. Hopefully a new string and tune will help it.
