The string and cable looks fine. I keep them waxed. xbow is 5yrs old and last season I noticed a lose in power and speed. shots were falling short so time for new ones. Id say average 4 deer per season = 20 shots, 5yrs of missed deer= 4, 5yrs of target and siteing in shots at say 25 per year =125. total shots before noticeing a difference= 150 +/- shots. also forgot decocking shots= 25 +/- so string and cable have average 175 +/- shots
Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave
