  • i was messing around with my bow and braodheads today and one of my broadheads fell on my bowstring. now one strand is cut tword

    i was messing around with my bow and braodheads today and one of my broadheads fell on my bowstring. now one strand is cut tword the bottom of the bow and it has some fraying in that area too. is my bow safe to shoot or will i have to replace the string?

    I think this question was asked before and the concenses was to replace the string. I could be wrong, but that's what I recall.

      It is time for a new string. The potential for disaster is huge with a frayed or cut string. I have personally experienced the mayhem of a dry fire and pieces flew everywhere. You do not want that to happen up in a tree. It sure sucked in the living room.

        I hate when that happens - you are in for a new string.

          Get a new string before you shoot the thing again.

            If you had a grizzly or bighorn hunt tomorrow I would say run with it but you have time to get a new string. It may last another year or bust on the next shot. But it is not worth getting a chunk of limb or cam embedded in your face to save a few bucks.

              Don't risk it, get a new string.

                Me personally, I would put a new string on. You can never be too safe.
