Crossbow restrung....how often?

It's been two years. It looks fine but I don't want to find out the hard way.

Most companies tell you to replace them every two to three years. I've never had a crossbow explode in my hands, but I've been told it gets ugly.

Re: Crossbow restrung....how often?

About 3 seasons ago now a friend of mine had his Parker limbs delaminate when he shot at a buck. He wasn't hurt but he said it was like a charge going off right near his face. I don't mean to hijack the thread but arrowhead's reply made me think of this incident.

This is who we are. This is what we do.
