Thread: old firecat

  1. #1

    Default old firecat

    i have an old fire cat that i would like to start shooting again. im worried about the ends of the steel coated cable the part of that is cracked is the sleve that goes up the cable a bit not the, for lack of better term, arrow head shaped part. is it still safe to shoot? can i get replacement parts?

    They are called tear drop cables some shops still have them and they are still sold.
    Here is a link. Make sure you check your thickness of the cable. I think these 5/64" for 80" length 70lb bow. This site has both the smaller cable and this one the bigger.

    I think that you still can get steel cables made up at Lancaster archery.
