Today while shooting I noticed my D-loop looked like it was starting to slightly fray. Now I just purchased a new bow this year and I have never had any experience with having to replace a D-loop, usually they have lasted the life of a bow for me since I usually get a new bow every 2-3 years. I honestly admit that I looked at it after a few shots and thought to myself maybe I should quit shooting and get this thing replaced, but I thought a few more arrows wouldn't hurt, and man was I WRONG! I went to draw and then I went straight to my A**. So I guess the advice I am trying to give and wish I would have followed, is if your equipment doesn't look 100%, it's not worth testing it! get it fixed.
