Default Ever have a bow lock up at full draw?

Just had an Elite gt500 lock up at full draw!!
Put a new set of strings on a gt500 and drew it back to check the dw. Well when I let up it went limp. Yikes. Both cams lock up and didn't move. The cams were to far advanced or over rotated. Usually happens to longer draw lengths or draw stops poorly adjusted.

i have only seen one of these. but they had a bow aound here that had like a 99% let off and a few guys who bought one said they had problems with the bow locking up not sure why though?

as a demo they would draw the bow back and point the riser to the ground then just hold the string.the weight of the riser would hold the bow at full draw.craziest thing i have ever seen.
