Well it is getting down to the wire. I can't decide if I need a new string or not. I have an 07 allegiance. I got it back in feburary of this year. Normally I wouldn't be asking this question, but I was using a string spliter to instal my peep (with out a bow press)and frayed some of the string. So now I have little hairs around where I tied my peep in. I have shot prbly 300 arrows through it and had 0 problems. Do you think That the frayed areas are dangerous or should I just wax em down and go. Like I said, I'm kinda getting close to the season to be swapping strings. What should i do? Wish i had a pic(sorry)

I'd say your alright. There are a lot threads in a string. I have shot a lot with a string that has a nick. If the fray bothers you take a lighter to it...carefully!

Strings fray under normal usages and can be waxed , but if you cut any strands you may want to change it out to be safe .
You can always buy a new string and shoot it in for a backup just incase this string does break .

More than likely, the string is OK, IF it's just frayed.

But, in reality, is it really worth blowing your bow up and possibly getting injured for the $40 or $50 it would take to replace it?
Consider it a lesson learned: install your peep with the aid of a bow press.

You've still got plenty of time to shoot before season opens.

If you decide to replace it, I suggest Vapor trail, talk about fast shipping! I got mine on advice from another member here who I trust implicitly on bow advice. I do like it.

Yes, change strings. It is safer and will give you peace at mind. As suggested VT strings are great. Ditch that string splitter.

Yea I think I am just going to leave it for now. I plan to shoot at least 4 days out of the week from here on out so I should know if it will be ok for hunting. I just waxed it down real good and I think she'll be fine. Like I said I've put about 400 arrows through the bow since that happend.

Thanks fellas
