It very well could just be cam lean if it is excessive (all bow have a little cam lean) or the cams could be out of time. Have you shot the bow through paper to see the flight as it leaves the bow? I would recommend you take it in to a pro shop and have them take a look and diagnose your exact problem. Good Luck!!

Cam lean is when the cams are and not lined up properly with the string. Some bow designs have more cam lean than others but nothing should be as bad as you describe. I wouldn't even shoot that bow until its fixed.

Usually a cam lean problem is due to twisted cables on your bow but it is usually too hard for a novice to get the cams lined up properly because they both have to be true both at rest and full draw.

Like labman said, take it to a good pro shop. Get it in quick because this is getting into their busiest time of year.

Yep, Pro shop would be my advice.

Post a picture of what you are talking about.

I know when people are having tunning problems the first thing most say is check for specs and cam lean. Of almost all bows and archers out there, unless some guy at BPS put on your string/cables and messed with the yokes you will never see issues with cam lean or getting a bow out of spec. And even if it is that could be the problem.

most likely it is your arrow spine, fletching contact, or bad form.
