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.
