    Make sure the cables are in the proper slot on the slide front or back could be switched, try to find a picture of the tssr and compare it to yours. somthings odd it dosent make sense. rest assure it will get fixed. No worries Mate well in your case Mate et'[;)]

    This may be a dumb question, but do you have the correct biscuit for your arrows? They make two different ones. One is for Aluminum and the other for carbons. The difference is the diameter of the hole in the biscuit. Is there anything in the hole of the biscuit? (just a guess) Could there be any bristles in the hole that didn't get cut correctly?

    Gagirl looked at pictures.it looks to me that you need to switch front to back. Pictire is not that clear top cam cable should be in the inner -most slot in the slide. and bottom should be in the outer most- slide looked at many bows they are all like that look at your pix just the opposite.[;)]

    ok when you say "innermost" what exactly are you meaning... closest to the riser? closest to the right side of the bow? left side? I am confused...
    I am really pissed at myself for not bringing it in here today... it not being right is consumeing me!!!!!!!!! Going nuts!!!!!!

    OK the teflon peice that slides on the cable guide has two slots one closer to the riser and one thats closter to the shooter.the string should go in the slot clostest to the riser and the cable should go in the slot closest to the shooter. thats what it looks like to me.[;)] Icould be wrong the picture is tough to see them clearly yours look oposite of others I have seen. I may be wrong GOGO would definatly know as soon as he sees this post i'm sure he will take care of it.[:)]

    Sorry it took me so long to chime in but it has been a hectic morning here. I would be more concerned about which side of the cable guide your buss cables are running. If you have them on the opposite side your riser shelf it will give you a bit more clearance. I saw that in your picture of your bow this is not the case. Also are you shooting cock feather down or to the side, if you twist your knocks so it is to the side you will gain a little clearance there too. How do you know the front of your arrow is to the right that bad? Is it that obvious or are you using a center tool? This is something I would be using a center tool on as it is not something you can really eyeball. If you could shoot some detailed pics of your cable area.

    Gagirl, when you get home send me pics of the bow and i'll compare it to mine. Maybe being a lefty also I might notice something, since we are the only ones in our right minds anyway[:D][:D]

    If it were cut wrong (and I don't know if that has ever happened, just looking at the obvious) the hole would not be perfectly round.

    Gogo... yeah you can actually see it! And that is what bothers me. ok next question... about changing the sides of the cable.. there is no real easy way for me to do this...huh? I am gonna have to take it to the proshop right? Now will the cable on the other side torque the bow?

    Taco ... it would be tomorrow before I could send the pics. I dont have a card reader at home. Do you have pics of yours on here that I could look at today/tonight by chance?

    No need to take it to a pro shop just grab ahold of those cables pull rearward and move to the other side of the cable guide. What about the cock feather out or down? On second thought you may want to take it to a proshop to have them tune it as they do it everyday and probably would make real short work of it for a minimal price.

    Cock... out...

    I agree that they would make simple easy work of it, but you have to understand that I am the type of person that studies EVERYTHING I can and I want to learn as much as I can about things. I would rather take time and learn how to do things then to have someone else do everything for me...( but I am thinking this may be one I may have to take it in for help on.)

    What the hell does that mean? As a lefty I am offended by such remarks.
    We do things "the other way", not "opposite from normal".

    Nope... I called a friend's dad last night.. who ironically tried to get me into archery when I was in High School...anyway.. he competed and was top in the south east for years...He will be in town this weekend to see his grand babies and we are going to get together. I have complete faith that the man will both kick my butt for not listening to him 20 yrs ago and he will also probably teach me more in one day then I could learn in a year. He is also the one who convinced me to learn how to shoota gun. He was a weapons instructor at F.L.E.T.C Glynco... but anyway I am looking forward to this weekend.

    I decided to leave well enough alone until he gets here...

    Spent most of Saturday shooting with a friend. I am still getting used to shooting lefty. I had to go down to 50 lbs. So far I cant say that I have any bad things to say about the bow itself. I have found that it is ALOT more difficult getting lefty stuff tho.
