While lowering my bow down from stand this evening the parachute cord I use broke...... and my bow fell about 10 feet to the ground. Bow tech is ok! Everyone check your rope. Don't be next

I was gonna ask the same thing, did it get cut by a broadhead or something? That stuff doesn't just break...

Happened to two guys I hunt with on the same morning last year. Both had been nicked by broad heads or some other sharp object. Cost one of them a bow and the other had to resight his.

Always check the haul lines.

For me, 550 cord is too light. I prefer braided nylon rope- I think it is about 3/8"- that comes in camo colors. I haul a lot of stuff around and 550 cord is hard on the hands when I pull it up or let it down. It also stretches to the point where I worry that a sharp edge or weld on my stand could cut it.

Same here. I typically buy my rope at Northern Tool or a local hardware store. For the most part, I could care less about the color of it. I try to get green, tan, brown or another darker color, but that is not a deal breaker for me.

I think I got the stuff I'm using at bass pro or dicks. I don't really care about the color either as long as it isn't white.
