    Check this mess out! This is a Bear Element just came in fresh out of one of the 2 super stores in Kingston, NY. The customer complained no mater what he dose the bow shoots low left by a few FEET.

    1 they never tied the drop zone rope in the cable SO IT SLIDES UP THE BOW CABLE.
    2 they used THE DROP ZONE CORD CLAMP AS THE KNOCK POINT
    3 they tied a 2'' LOOP WITH OVERHAND KNOTS.
    4 they never put the PEEP IN

    Nice!!!

    I can't tell; but...is that a peep inside the D Loop!? :eek: Maybe not, but if not what the heck is it? :noidea: Oh wait, that's the Drop Zone cord clamp? Amazing!

    Yeah, that's terrible....

    What a horribly stupid setup. That's one of the reasons why I lobby against big stores like GM, Cabelas and Bass Pro for archery.

    Selling somebody a rod and reel is nothing like selling somebody a bow.

    Wow, but the sad news is that I am not surprised...

    That is HORRIBLE.. I would take the bow back and demand a refund.. Than buy one from a PRO shop like the one who is willing to fix the mess you have now....
