Re: Cross bow re-stringing
You can extend the life of the string by waxing them, so they will not fray. My suggestion is the string every two years and the cables every 4 years. Make sure to keep the rail lubed and that will also increase the life of the string, just don't put to much lube on . . . I would say every 15-20 shots.
I would think leaving a xbow cocked for 10 weeks would weaken the limbs and cause un needed stress. Shoot a field tipped bolt in the ground/target to uncock it. I have personally never kept a cocked xbow sitting around.
There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.
