when i went turkey hunting my neices husband derailed the z7 i gave him. being skinny and weak i had to crack the bow down to just a smige under 60lbs for him to pullback..i wonder if that had anything to do with it derailing..he draws it back pretty smooth not herky jerky any reasons?

I would look at cam lean at full draw. If the cams are leaning a lot, it wouldn't take a lot of torque to do it even if it was drawn correctly.

If they are leaning, I think Mathews uses tophat style of shims which would be an easy fix at a bow shop. Would definately need a press.

Just because you're skinny and weak doesn't mean you had to turn the bow down for him. :wink


I've seen people torque their grip so bad that they pop the string. It's not that uncommon.

Help him with his grip, if that's not uncomfortable for everyone ....
