Don't ever try to get one more shot out of a frayed rope cocker!

It's actually pretty obvious I guess, I just thought mine would last a little longer. The rope broke just before the bow was cocked so the two hooks hit my big toe at (I think) more than 300 fps. I had to remind myself that no, this is a crossbow, I didn't just put an arrow in my toe even though it feels like it. I found the one hook but the other bounced up against the house and landed in the flowers about 10 ft. away. It's a little early to tell but it looks like a blood blister under the whole toe nail and everything else is really puffy.
I repeat, don't use a frayed rope cocker!!

Question: is the Parker red hot rope cocker the best choice for an '08 Parker Cyclone?

Actually I was speaking about the hooks on the cocker. I've seen a few of them wear to the point that I wasn't comfortable with it. The Excal hooks are larger and seem to take more wear.
