Bear Assualt Problems

I just bought a bear assault about 2 months ago and have shot it maybe 500 times. i was just shooting it a minute ago and the cable snapped causing the limbs to pop off and hit me in the face. does anyone know why this happened or how i could fix it?

Did you maybe nick the string with a broadhead weakening it?

I have a Bear Assault also

Where did your cable break? I found the serving saver on one of the cam posts was frayed. I believe it was from the bow press adaptors that the shop used to set it up. Apparently the overloaded limbs cannot be put on any bow presses, or I should say the 4 presses that the shop had, without the adaptor shims because of the over 90 deg angle. The shop had to special order the adaptor and it is used only for the Assault bow. They repaired the serving saver and it did not fray the cable so it has been doing great for me. The shop also had the Bear rep look at it and the rep said they would replace the cable if I had any problems with it.

Other than that I absolutly love this bow!

Odd thing for a cable to

Odd thing for a cable to break.  My quess would either be a nick in the string.  May have been rubbing wrong on one of the cams, nick by broadhead, alot of thing could have caused a nick in the string.  If the replace the limbs, make sure the riser is also checked for any damage.

That sure shouldn't be happening, at least they will hopefully take care of it for you.
