    I hate when that happens.

    Is that your new Pantera?

    Nope. It is on my Scepter. The Pantera isn't here yet. So, now I am bowless again....:mad:

    DANG! That really sucks.

    Can't you take a little 400 grit to the cam and reserve the string?

    I will be sanding the cam, but a string builder I'm not.... I'll have to take it somewhere to get it reserved and I pretty much live in the boonies....:doh:

    I feel your pain there. Our nearest one stoplight town is about 10 miles away.

    We did get a stop sign a few years ago. :rockon:

    You should talk to Le Earl and get one of his dvd's.

    Those dvd's of his are a Godsend to people like us who don't have the luxury of a good pro shop right down the street.

    I'm researching that as we speak. As I understand things, I need to have the string under tension to reserve it. Looking at some string jig ideas as we speak...:peace:

    Heck, to reserve the end like that, all you need is a good phillips screwdriver through each loop, and two guys playing tug of war for a few seconds while you serve it up.:rockon:

    But BC can you not repair that serving? If you have a way to draw the bow and keep it back. Then unwind the serving far enough to end serve it. Then serve in a extension to make it the right length. Would that not work?

    No doubt you could. The only thing that I personally would not do is get my hands in there unless the bow was tied down to a good press. Possibly a hooter shooter would suffice.

    I have some friends that I really trust, but not enough to hold a bow at full draw while I am serving it.:tape:
