Issue's with string on Parker Tornado F-4
I had the crossbow for 2 seasons with no issues. I took the bow to the dealer in town here to replace the bow string and buss cables. They looked good, but I would feel better if i had them replaced before hunting season.
I was a little stunted when he said $70.00 plus change. LOL use to vertical bow string price's I guess. I took it home shot a few rounds. It didn't need any scope adjustments. So I continue to shoot a few more shots, it started to shoot 2 inch's to the left. I adjusted scope and shot fine. Took target to 30 yards. 1st shot was good, the second was back to the left again. I brought back to 20 and had to adjust scope again. The scope is a nikon bolt. Well it repeated it self again.
I noticed the left buss cable on the pulley was torn. Not only was the loop unwrapping i noticed a 1/2" crack on the lower split limb. I stop there, took the bow back to the dealer and he said looks like it was cut? I pointed out the crack, he said keep an eye on it might be just the paint chip in that spot? Free of charge for the new strings
I got the bow back during the week, had time today to shoot it. I back where I started. Shot good and then after dozen shots started to shoot to the left again, and the string is falling apart where it loops on the pully, but the chip seems to look the same. My question is what is causing this issue.
I don't feel comfortable taking it back to the dealer to ask his advice again which I did the first time. Any advice what it could be? I feel the limb is causing the issue, not a paint chip. The chip is 1/2" long smaller than 1/32" wide. I can see it and feel it run my finger nail across it.
Thank you... ED
