If your current bow string seems like it wants to rotate, there are some DIY tips you can do at home to stop this from happening.

1) Using a press, put a couple twist in the string.
2) Shoot a few times
3) Repeat from step 1 if there is still rotation

If there are enough twists, the rotation will usually stop.

If you find yourself making too many twists, the next will be to readjust the draw length. Checking poundage while adjusting draw.
Getting the right amount of twist is the most crucial key to reducing peep twist.
