    I was shooting my PSE and one of my cables popped. I think the one cable that is still on there saved my limbs. The string derailed but I think that is all.

    Precision Shooting Equipment. You might want to inspect those string and cables once in a while.

    I did, funny thing is that the string that looked like it had the most wear is the one that is still on there

    Weird stuff happens when that kind of energy is being stored and released.

    I do the same thing. These ABB strings were on their second year. I was just trying to finish the year with them.

    Glad your okay. I always worry about strings derailing or being cut by something. While hunting in a dead fall for turkey I was drawing and checking clea rances and got a twig caught between my cam and string glad I caught it before letting down.

    Yes very blessed. I dropped it off at the shop today. Hopefully I can use it as my back up bow for this last hunt coming up.

    Had something like that happen to me a few years ago basically had the string fall off didn't pop or anything it just got so stretched it fell off and that was before I learned I should replace strings every two years.
    Glad to hear you had no injuries!!
