Thread: End serving
03-14-2006, 10:32 PM #1
Have any of you XT owners noticed the end serving at the cam separating a little? A friend has shot his XT about 200 times and it looks kinda nasty. The shop owner reserved it and said that factory servings are sometimes a little loose. How about it fellas any of you heard this? Thanks alot.

My cable is doing it I noticed it after about 40 - 50 shots. Its doing it where it has to go around that really hard bend in the cam I was told it is normal wear and if it gets bad to bring it in for a lil re serving. Im just gonna wait until it gets bad and get a new cable with some colors in it.06 Switchback XT

The orginal Switchbacks all did the same thing. Mine still has the original string and cable. The problem is the cable serveing is too fat. Mine did the same thing you are describing. If you remove part of that serving the problem will go away. Mine did. Mine has to have at least 2500 shots after we removed the serving and I see no damage to the cable strands.I cut things up and split them down!

Well I don't shoot the XT, but IF I use a factory string the 1st thing I do is remove all the factory serving and reserve it. On more than one occasion after just a few shots the factory serving has started seperating. Buy yourself a good serving jig and learn to do your own. It's not hard and I actually enjoy it.

How long have you had your XT on Order Frank ? We have been getting orders about every 2 weeks at the store I work at...

Sorry it took so long to get back I had to go feed a friends horses. Its been 23 days now. Its killing me waiting on it. I have been shooting my old Jennings just to pass some time.

Just as a side note. I checked my records. I ordered the XT 29/70s on 3/6 and there were delivered 3/14.
That's what 8 days, granted we are very close to mathews(2.5hrs). Shipping time only takes 1 day.
