I have an old Bear Vapor 3000 and have decided to bow hunt more this year. The last few years I have only hunted one bow hunt per year due to constraints outside of my control. This year, I have divorced my constraint, and will be going more often. Here's my question. Should I replace my string and buss cable? I really have not shot it much with the string that is on there, and I have kept it well waxed. The string still looks to be in good shape. However, I noticed that the buss cable has one broken strand.

I wouldn't trust the cable if it has a broken strand. Fuzzed up a little? No big deal. If a strand is broken I question why, how and what is the chance of the others going. An exploding bow is not a fun outdoor activity.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I'd go ahead and change them. Especially if your planning on shooting with more frequency.

Yea, more hunting time...but less money. Thanks for the advice. You all confirmed what I already suspected. I have ordered a new buss cable already.
