    Default serious problem

    So after three weeks my brand new blade x4 frayed almost completely through the string. I took the bow to Fin today , they're bow tech went over the bow and found no burrs or anything. $50 later after the new string I was out at the range, 20 arrows through and the string is fraying. Its going back to the "pro" shop tomorrow but in the mean time, any ideas? Its a single cam fury xt, the bow is brand new this seems like a crazy problem for a brand new bow

    Where is it fraying? Is it just one spot?

    You need to check that area and see if any burrs or rough spots use some emery cloth to smooth it out if so......

    Got any pictures you can post up for us. I had similar problems but not as bad as what you are describing. Mine was in the cam area.

    ouch not good.... that's a funny place to get frayed at though.... you'd think that location is pretty static and wouldn't move a whole lot. You should have someone watch that cable while you draw to see if they can catch what's going on, or put it on a drawboard and see for yourself if you have access to one.

    Aceman,
    Here is what I found it is. I have a Phantom X 4 sitting right here and I checked it out. The string pins on all of them has a sharp lip on the upper side. You need to take a round file or a piece of sand paper and take the edge off. When you draw the string rolls and that lip shaves the serving.

    I have the same cam on my Bengal and Silencer. After looking at Wabbit's post I noticed that the area in question is not that static and works the serving pretty hard. The serving is separating on mine but not frayed yet. I will have to keep monitoring it. Hey thanks for posting this thread. I used Hutch's fix on my Silencer but in a different spot. Worked great, used 320 grit to polish it down.
