Has this ever happened too u??
Have been setting my bow up for a few months now and today was the final shoot of the year.Took Thursday off to shoot 60 targets and had this baby humming when I noticed the drop away fork on the ultra lite was fatigued so I stopped into the bow shop which will remain Anonymous at this point.They changed it out no problems $12.50 Thank-you!!!!!Today first target 30 Yards it shoots 8" high,ohh well to much sauce last nite get over it!!!!Next target 32 yards 9" high WTF!!!!!!Left the comp and retuned the bow it was totally screwed up WTF????The dude from the shop walks by and asks whats up so i explain !!!Then he says Ohhh that sight had a lose bolt and I just fixed it up for free!!!!Thanks Dickhead,problem solved shot the back 20 and the rest is history!!!!!Ohh well always next year I guess!!!!!Thanks Eagle Archery!!!!!

just make a gang elevation adj. to your pin sight , move the pin hosing up a lil bit. The worn screw could of had your sight drooping a lil bit. also the worn rest could have caused this as weel, putting the new one on could raise your point of impact. re check your nock point.Archerytalk, Helping Sponsors fleece novice Archers since 2001.

That's why I do everything myself. But I think....sorry for this....your more at fault then the shop.
You can't make adjustments to your bow and not shoot it and then be mad that it's off at a shoot. Changing/fixing your rest probably had more to do with your POI change then replacing a screw. Either way your arrows were going to hit the same spot exactly.

Answering the original question? NO, this has never happened to me. I started shooting compounds in 1973 and from day-one nobody in a shop has ever done any work on my bow. I have always done it myself. I'd be lying if I said I never made a mistake, but at least I learned from those mistakes.
I take measurements of anything I can think of in case something goes haywire or I make a change. In doing so I can completely change a rest and have the bow shooting within inches of where it was prior to the change, but I always check the POI and tune afterwards.
Never trust anybody to be as meticulous with your equipment as you would be.Martin/Rytera Silver Star Shooter
