Default Need some expert advice...

I am trying to get prepped for bow season and I started shooting the bow when after some shoots I notice that the cable string going from the lower cam eyelet to my top limb has some fraying. Is it enough to warrant getting the bow restrung?

Below are some pics of the string in question.

Yep...you need to get that fixed before shootig again. It might even break on its own and potentially ruin your limbs.

Take it to pat at mikes gun shop on hwy 29. He will do you right. I think it is around $40-50 for a new string and cable

Hard to tell from the photos but I agree with the above. Better safe than sorry. Keep your string and cable waxed.

Tommie at Gulf Coast Outdoors builds an excellent string and cable, but I think he has closed but not sure.

Went by Mike's yesturday for something else and they are already getting busy at the archery department. I better hurry and get it done ASAP before it is too late.

Anyone know if Mike's builds their strings or buys them? I know Tommy did a custom string per setup.

Thats an odd area for the string or cable to be fraying. The pic looks like its just the serving but I would want to know why its happening there.....check the post on the cam good for burs or rough edges !
