The edge 320 has the easy adjust limb pockets, if the limbs came out of the pockets hmm 

I'm not sure how they retain the limbs within the pockets because I don't think the bolt goes through the limb itself like a normal bow, it's just shoved into the pocket and clipped in somehow.  What has me wondering is you say both limbs came out at the same time, so if the string came off the cam during the draw the limbs would slap back past their resting position within the pockets, and due to the design, may have popped out simultaneously.

Yes both limbs came out of the pockets at the same time.   Iím just not sure how I could torque the bow with fingers open and bubble centered.  Draw weight is at 40 lbs. almost effortless.   There is a bolt that runs horizontally through the limb pocket.  Supposed to lock limbs in place.  Iím wondering if those were not tightened down
At the shop they guy just slipped the limbs back in the pockets like nothing.  No resistance at all

I believe Iíve figured out the issue.  Been reading the manual and watching videos.  For my draw length the cables need to be in position a.  For that position the min draw weight should not go below 45lbs.  My bow was set at 40 lbs. in the review video I watched when the bow was lowered below 45lbs in position A the string was very easy to derail. Guy was actually able to remove string by hand and was able to put it back on by hand.

Interesting. Keep in mind what your fingers are doing has nothing to do with the torque you are putting into the bow. Yes a relaxed grip is good but I could derail a bow with a loose grip if I twisted my wrist enough. Specially at really lite poundage.
