Re: Arrow Jumps during cocking
To add to the instructions that Andy has provided also do the following:
If you do pull excess cord out to attach your D-Loop to the winding sled release or forget about the sled long enough to use your right hand to apply tension and guide the excess winding cord back onto your cranking spool while you begin cranking with your opposite hand. Always start the spooling from the left side of your spool and guide it toward the right as instructed by PSE.
Whoever it was that stated their Cable Bumpers are split 1/2" deep, they need to replace these immediately to avoid problems. There are at least two different bumpers sold by PSE. One is the original bumper that is used in the manufacturing process and there is also another that looks almost identical to that one, but it's sold as a Vibration Dampener for their compound bows, by PSE and can be found on their website under the vibration dampening accessories.
Both will fit your crossbow the same way, but the second one I mentioned is a softer rubber than the first. It does a better job with the vibration dampening, but I have no statistics on how long it will hold up yet because I only have about 100 shots on one. The price for the the non factory cable stop is very inexpensive. I have no idea what PSE charges for the original factory dampeners.
Super 91 also has purchased and used some after market cable dampeners that are supposed to be very god, but I don't have any details on the ones that he's now using. Possible he can fill in the details when he see's this thread.
