This section of my buss cable was fuzzy when I brought it home from BPS to shoot it for the first time. I guess I didn't notice it when I first inspected it when I got it. I waxed it after shooting the bow for the first time and it smoothed out. I waxed my strings tonight with wax and a chamois to create enough heat to melt the wax ino the fibers. Well, this is what that sectioned looked like as soon as I started rubbing on it. Should I contact Parker? Is this thing gonna blow? This is a brand new Parker Trailblazer.

Some folks on Archery Talk are saying this is from the rubber peep hitting the string. Man, this is alot of punishment if that is the case. I've only shot the bow 60 times. I wonder if this string is messed up from the factory.

You just bought that new from BPS right? Take it in and ask them what they can do about it. They may be able to replace the cable for you or send it back to Parker. If they can't or won't then contact Parker directly and ask them to stand behind the bow. If they won't Call Joe at Hermitage Archery or any other Pro Shop and you will have to pay for a new cable.

It is possible the tubing did that. But I have shot the rubber tubing on my hunting rigs for Thirty years and have never had one wear like that so quickly. I would recommend sliding the tube down the cable to be more inline with the peep at full draw. use the angle of the plastic post to guide your placement. Then shorten the rubber tubing. It looks to me like you have excess tubing which is added weight and at the shot that is more abuse the cable is taking from the tube wrapping and slapping each time.

Parker told me they will send me a new cable. I will get a shop to put on a new cable and have a tubeless peep put on.

Glad Parker is doing well by you. How much will BPS charge to make the change for you?

Things like this is why IMO it's better to have everything done with and to your bow by a good local bow shop.
Support them,and they will support you.

Especially if you are a new archer.

Not bashing BPS,but I hope the guys with the local shops stay in business,and we don;t all end up having to buy everything online, or at a big box store.

I think of it being similar to having your own good personal Doctor vs, a walk in clinic.
There is a difference.

Do like Radr mentioned, have them serve the string where the rubber is making contact with the string. Also, do you wax-condition your string after each use? Proper care is the key to maintaining a good string and cable.

Ahhhh...this is better. I took my bow to Dickson Sportsman for the first time today. I was very impressed with the service I received. Rick was great and he is also a member on this forum. He hooked me up with a new buss cable made by Matthews. It is the Zebra brand. I now am tubeless on the peep and Rick showed me how to train it. He also pointed out that I had some racket coming from the bow when I was shooting. He found out there was a screw loose on my sight. He also helped me with my grip. I am definately going there for all future work. BPS was fine, but these people are great. They also have alot of other goods.

BTW, Rick determined that it was the tubing slapping the string and he has seen it before. He told me that it was not in any immediate danger, but the tubing would continue to slap and frizzle the threads at that point. I kept the orginal as a backup.

and why is that?

i only put it on the riser screws. i could just tighten it up everytime it comes loose, but then i have to unscrew the quiver. afraid i might eventually strip the thread out of the riser.

JUSt FYI the reason he said BLUE loctite is because you can break the screws loose when you use the Blue... now the red loctite it great but you will never get the screws broke loose without damaging the riser.

they sell it at any auto parts store, i think walmart even sells it now. i also use it on scope mount bases.

BUT, i dont want to steer you wrong, you might want to pm Radar and ask him about using it. you can also use bowstring wax on the threads, i use that on my broadhead threads.

its my arrow quiver that was vibrating those screws loose, i think my 30" arrows were acting like an amplifier. i never had that problem on my other bow, but my other bow wasnt shooting almost 300 fps either.

I don't use blue loctite on anything but draw stops . I just tighten my sight mounts up tight , and recheck them often . I like to use allen head screws for my sight mounts because I can tighten them down better than phillips head screws .
I use string wax on my broadheads and field point threads to keep them tight .
