    Have you re-tuned it? A new string will change a lot of things. If you keep having problems, then just put your old string back on.

    Maybe along the lines of what Mike said with tuning, perhaps your nock point is too low/too high causing fletching contact?

    OK I agree with a propper tuning of the bow now aftyer the new string change, paper tune it
    and I will also add, get the draw weight checked on it, if your old string was well stretched, making it longer, even if in tune, adding a new propper weight can add LBS to the draw weight, and the extra weight could be causing your to have impropper form, thus making your groups open up
    I would also go over the whole bow and make sure nothing is loose, and last, check the nocking point on the string, measure it even, make sure its not a LOT thicker, causing the arrows to leave funny, a too tight nock on the string can cause it to fly funny, thus opening up your groups

    well good to hear your happy now, but to be honest, I would still take a paper shot or two
    every bow shop, that claimed to have papertuned a bow???
    not saying they didn't, but never hurts to double check
    these days, folks in business, don't always do what they say, sadly!
    Just saaying! wouldn't be the first time a bow shop lied LOL
    and a different nock point, will change your form, so that could be why the gropus opened up right there! Form is so important in accuracy in all weapons!

    I don't know how some of these proshops can sleep at night!!!!! Some body else can't tune your bow, you have to do it. They don't put their hand in the grip the same, might not be the same release, way to many differences between people and shooting styles for someone else to be tuning your bow. And like mrbb said, if they did anything at all.

    I think you nailed it Mike, after all I have never heard of them tying in a peep without aligning it to the shooter.....

    I could help with that, but it would have to be an evening during the week. This winery keeps me busy all weekend.
    I would also think some up your way could help too.
