i have a parker terminator 175 and I just got new limbs put on it due to one of the original limb splitting. prior to that it shot great. well I got it back friday from parker took a practice shot, looked ok was out yesterday and placed the cross hair on a doe and bang I shot but the bolt flew slow and right over her. I looked down and my string broke. well I was pretty upset after that. so I actually found another string at Mike's bait/archery shop in nazereth and he was nice enough to put the string on for me right there. I was up and running again. on to go shoot at a target and one strand of the string snapped on the same side the first string broke on. has this happened to anyone. could it be another limb issue or a cam/wheel issue?

sounds like there might be something obstructing the string flight zone? I don't know much about xbows, but from the sounds of it, something is hitting the string on release. look carefully and most of all, be VERY careful until you find it. Might be worth the time/money to get it professionally checked.

Make sure your black plastic string guide is still in the stock and installed string groves DOWN! Mine kept creaping out and fell off with out me knowing it and string frayed ..I caught it before it broke.. Now I double check each time I fire it.. Also Parker strings are rated by bow limb poundage make sure it's for a Terminator #150 or #175

Check your nocks. Check the barrel for anything unusual. Look at the string latch very closely with a flashlight. If you can't find anything have it checked by a shop that deals in crossobws or send it back to Parker.

Yep. Nock indexing is the number one cause of broken strings or cracked limbs on bows shooting moon nocks. Take a cotton ball and rub it on the barrel and in the string latch which will reveal any burrs.
