Re: string jumping off the sled

I would try pulling the draw string to the left while you are cranking. This will cause the draw string to wind on the spool evenly and not bunch up.

Hey Slugger. I remembered seeing a video about this a while back so I did a quick check and found it. Is this what you're experiencing?

If so, it seems the drawstring may be wound the wrong direction around the drum. Hopefully this is it. Best of luck - don't give up with it

Re: string jumping off the sled

thanks for the reply my problem is similar but only difference is it fires and the string gets caught on the anti dry fire i think the dloop capture must be warn and when it gets to much pressure on it ,it fires i think i will replace the slide and see what happens was hopping it was going to be something simple just i can get another one bow is only 3 months old cheers

Re: string jumping off the sled

I'm not sure if this will help, but on a 3 month old tac I don't think the parts are worn out.


When deploying the cocking block pull it out just far enough to hook the knocking loop. The cocking string is meant to wind around the spool in a certain direction. If you pull it out too far you could cause the string to wrap in the wrong direction, causing it to pile up onto one side of the spool and then drop off, causing a loud popping sound and possibly having the arrow pop off during the cocking procedure. (For more info see the "Trouble Shooting" section at the end of the PSE written instructions)
