I ran by BPS to pick up some supplies and while there I had them remove some serving and add string leeches. Well, I get home to inspect the bow and I see this little poof of fiber. Upon closer inspection it looks like it was nicked when they used a razor blade to remove the serving. Fibers are poofing on both sides and it looks like it is where the serving had ended. Is this an issue? I hope I don't have to replace the strings anytime soon.

Screw it. I couldn't make it out to Dickson Sportsman to simply have some string leeches put on, so I went in to BPS. Well, he poked that blade clean through the string cause there are fibers coming out both ends. I ran my fingers over that spot a few times and it has poofed out on both sides. I noticed he was waxing the string on that spot when I was standing there talking to him. He knew what he did. I give up. This sucks cause I don't want to stand over someone while they work, but I wish I had gone to Dickson. I am calling Dickson tommorrow to see if they have some strings in stock. BPS has some cheap strings behind the counter, so I am not going to waste my time. All I want to do is get some work done, not get screwed.

Just don't replace it with a Zebra string . They creep like crazy . I would replace it with a string made of 452X like Winner's Choice or Vapor Trail . It has less creep ,and will be easier to keep the peep aligned and the bow in spec.
