    Get a new string. I do it every other season whether I see fraying or not. Besure to wax the string before each use and keep the rail lubed with grease. be sure to sight in the Bow after you replace the string. Mine always shoots slightly high after a string change. Have fun.

    I have a Horton Legend SL I bought used on Ebay last year before the season came in here in VA. I had the string changed at a Bow Store and it was less than $20 if I remember right. Good luck. I love my cross bow. I messed up my right shoulder years ago. I'm 52 years old now and haven't been able to bow hunt for years. That has changed since Virginia made cross bows legal. I had a ball last fall and bagged several deer with my cross bow. Can't wait to do it again this fall.
