Hello,

I have a 09 firecat and my cables have streatched about 3/4 of an inch. Do I need to have them replaced or can I have them twisted to bring the axle to axle back to 32 1/4??? Please advise!!!!!

Thank you!

If they are the original cables, I'd have them replaced. If they aren'tthat old, you can probably twist them up. If it was me, and they had stretched that far, I'd replace them regardless.

Replace them it is safer and will put the bow back into specs

if you do replace one then go for the whole nine yards and just buy anew string as well

Depends on what is going on, normally they wont stretch that much so there is something going on. Have you taken them off the bow to check or are you just measuring on the bow? How did you notice the problem in the first place?
