string weights moving

I got my tac this week and after about 10 shots the heatshrink on the right hand side string started tearing together with the serving, now after 50 or so shots it has moved about 5mm or maybe more. Is this normal? Also I'm strugling with accurasy a bit, not bad but not the 1" groups I keep hearing about.

Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for your problems. Can you post a picture of the string issue?

    Have you read the"10 things to know before you fire your Tac the first time"? Your accuracy issue may be related to parallax in your scope.

    Len, yes I did go through those steps and I did paper tune it and I do adjust the parallax as best as I understand it for different distances but I think the issue is the weights are moving. The left hand one is now in contact with the cam so I'm not shooting any further till this is resolved.

    I'll give the posting a picture thing a try again later.

    It doesn't happen often but I have seen that type of movement before. You need a new string. Warranty covers it. Your dealer should be able to handle that for you. If not email me and I'll help.

    I have some further news, our local dealer will replace the strings, now I live 450km away so I would like to do it myself. On Youtube and here there is a video clip showing how a guy replaces his useing two rods to jam the cams in place after a few cranks on the handle. Is this safe or should I unbolt the limbs. Should I replace just the string where the arrow gets atached to or everything?

    Thanks for the help.
