Cable replacement for Martin Lynx Magnum
I have an old Martin Lynx Magnum that I'd like to start shooting again. I asked a local pro shop about getting the string changed and re-tuning the bow for me, and he told me that he could replace the string but he couldn't replace the cables. Is this shop just trying to sell me a new bow or can this be done? If so, who in AZ can do it for me? I've owned this bow since I was 14 yrs old and I won some 3D shoots with it, so its got a little bit of sentimental value to it.
It can be recabled you just have to find the right cables The part number for the cable you would need is a set of 3155H I dont know if martin still has them you could call and see if they even have them anymore.Then you have to find someone who knows how to do iy in your area..............
Thanks! One more ?!
Thanks for the part #! I'll see if I can find the right cable and find another shop down here that can work on it. Do you happen to know how long the steel cables are normally good for on these older bows?
