Limb Twist - Gathel H.

Hey guys I recently bought a used pa-x cocobolo and I love it. I believe it was one of BWs test bows that someone purchased. However, I noticed that sometimes when I drew it back and let it down fast, that the bottom limb would pop. I have leather strips on the string grooves for silencing material and upon inspection, I could see marks on one side where the string was not hitting in the groove and the leather has even slid to the side a little. I imagine this is a limb twist and when you look down the limb I could see a slight twist so I twisted it back like the BW manual suggests and it seemed to straighten out. I had to twist it again this morning and the noise has stopped but it has me really worried. Will this problem fix itself? How long will I have to keep twisting it? Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

I would get rid of the leather groove padding, string up and get limbs straight as per manual; lat hang strung by 2 pegs on string (as per manual check next day should still be straight if not let Roger at Black widow look at it they can put back in oven on form and get straight I think but the above should work
