Thumbs up

I really liked the guy that was here in Lawrence. Had great success with him, but he just up and left without any notice. Was very convenient because most of my work is in Lawrence.
With you guys help I think I'll work on my own stuff until I get stumped Big smile

I use a guy in Olathe, just south of Sante Fe on the east side of HWY 35. The shop is off of the access road running even with 35 N.

CVC - I have to wait until Tues., but I may need that extra day eye roll

rookie - I've been to that shop couple years ago, they seemed to be alright , but they weren't able to help me with the problem I had at the time.

hehehe I lived in Cimmeron (16 miles west of Dodge) for a while, while I was refitting the Excell plants electrical. In that 16 mile drive every morning I could count in the LEAST 40 deer out feeding. LOVED it there. Sure wish I could land a good job there so I could move (hint hint CVC Mr. Cool! )

Took the advice given and I'm back in business. I'm all tuned, but as CVC knows it is a little windy today. I'll adjust the sight next when it's not quite as windy.
Was my first time tying a loop, so I hope it works alright. The first one I tied, I got the flame too close to the loop and the first pull snapped it. Need a little practice in that dept.
I put a nock set on the bottom knot of the loop to help keep the nock in the same spot. Just being overly cautious, but will this hurt anything?
Thanks everybody, I'm sure I'll have more questions to come lol

No it won't hurt anything.
It just adds a bit more resistance to the string. Will probably slow the launch down by 5 or so fps.

Congrats on resetting your rig. Some day we may be asking you questions

Be sure to check your sight pins.
