D Ring / Loop Stretched out = Wont Fire
hey folks, new guy here. ms.spicytuna bought herself(us) a new toy to play with. so today was the day we opted to test it out. using the PSE scope that it came with, we began to do our 20yard "ZERO" but found the point of aim to point of impact was WAY off. i ended up adjusting the scope all the way to the left(as far as it could go) and we still were hitting way to the right on the target.
so i got the bright idea to move the d-loop a little to the right by twisting it. well it worked well. we were a tad high, so i adjusted the windage on the scope. then i got dead center. then a tad high again. (then we discovered the cheap scope ring mounts were loose on the picatinny rail. i tightened them up again) so we set up to take a few more shots to really get our ZERO.
i loaded the d-loop onto the appropriate hook, wound it up, and pulled the trigger. A loud "CLICK!!" was heard and the arrow flew 5 feet. the cocking sled hardly budged. i unwound the bow and found the d-loop on the front most hook. weird. i blamed myself - and tried again. i made SURE to put the d-loop onto the appropriate hook, and wound it up. was ready to take the shot, and once i pulled the trigger "CLICK!!". again the d-loop was on the front hook versus its appropriate hook.
after looking around, i realized that the arrow (when mounted onto the nock) was not depressing the safety all the way. that was due to the d-loop being too stretched out. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT I CAN FIX EASILY AT HOME?
