I am not sure I understand what is being meant by "extra string". That's why I didn't address that possible problem any further other than to say that an arrow hitting anything was a problem.

Do you mean it hits a cable? or do you have actual extra string hanging from your bow?

redrider is correct, that should be the first thing that you fix.

Release really wont cause a problem as long as you grip it the same everytime especially if you are using your thumb as anchor reference. I prefer a wrist release and a kisser button.

Found one on e-bay. It says, ROBIN HOOD ''PHOENIX'' and not alot more. Looks like your standard Compound Bow.

I would carry the bow into a professional and have him make sure the bow is set up for you. They can make sure it fits you, make sure you are set up/holding it right and sight it in for you in about 1 minute. Most of them will not charge much if at all. Also, before you decide it fits and are ready to get in a stand, do some practicing from a stand similar to what you are hunting out of. Hitting a deer/hog from a tree stand is different from hitting a level target. Good luck! Thumbs up
