I tried to us a [spoiler] code to hide this image unless clicked on cuz I don’t know the rules about possible graphic images, but didn’t work. also I photoshopped it a bit to pop the colors.

Where to begin…

Really, I just want to understand what happened. I can’t stop anyone from giving me a lecture on me being a dumbass, but not necessary, already know that.

So I’m home pulling back my Diamond Edge SB-1 and the string(buss cable) on the top cam slips under the draw stop. When I go to let down the string, there’s a major stall, slack, then the tension kicks in and the stop slips out and the string is let down. Weird, kinda scary, no incident.

I take a look in the vice and notice there was a much larger gap between the buss string and the cam on the top. I “fixed” this by sliding out the cable slide and putting it in the opposite way. The slide has a shorter and longer protruding point so putting the buss strings back in placed each string near flush to both cams, allowing the stop to perform as it should.

Now you’re probably thinking, “wat da hell kid, you’re outta your league take it to the tech!” And you’re right. On the schedule.

So I’m at Academy and decide to take a look at their SB-1 and just look how it’s supposed to be set up. I draw back and……THE EXACT THING HAPPENS.

Except this time letting down the string does not release the buss cable tension, the draw stop has LOCKED in there. holding a bomb.

Don’t know about all Academy Sports but this one eliminated their archery tech/range (range is now storage).

So I’m in this weird situation, asking the girl “who knows what to do? is there a bow press.” “er uh gee Mr. we don’t have bow techs.” People start to gather, I have a guy hold the string tension with a safety release while I use a pair of thick pants folded three times to see if I can get that cable out of the stop (STUPID I KNOW). But doesn’t budge.

The string is off the cams so we take it off completely. And with the pants I push the top cam and….FWWACKKKK!!!!! ok, bomb defused, pants apparently got shifted and cam sliced an inch, pretty deep, cut.

Again, I am a dumbass, but in the moment, no one knew **** and my ego was saying, “ok it’s up to you batman!!” Idiot. Should have left if there, NOT my problem.

So a few things. In that situation, assuming a tech was around, what should have been done?

Also, on mine, is reversing the cable slide stupid?

Obviously this is a Dimond Edge SB-1 MAJOR defect. Plan on calling them.

I do think the incident at the store, the bow was several inches shorter than my draw length, plus much lighter poundage so I think I drew too strong/long and pulled that cable through the stop BUT regardless, that should not have happened.

Besides being pissed at myself, I was really pissed at Academy for being allowed let people TOUCH a bow without a certified bow tech present. Sell them? Ok. Maybe. But without a bow press, a tech, or hell, someone that knows ANYTHING about bows, letting someone draw a bow is insane, man. Amiright?

I don’t even know where this thread is going but maybe just some constructive thoughts. Or even lay into me. Probably deserve it.

But the hand is fine. day 2 doesn’t even hurt, the staff was friendly and patched me up enough for me to get home to my own kit. Butterflies, New Skin, etc.

NBC sports…. nock out show… archery TV show

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

hello all,

i was just wondering if anybody else has seen this NBC show? i looked it up on the net and was able to watch the pilot and season 1 show 1….. but that is all i can find.. i liked what i saw but for a shoe that was suppose to start july of this year i cannot find any more episodes…

so the question i have is has any other episodes been made or did this archery shot get dropped after just the 1 show…

well i am hoping i can find out more on this, but with my luck somebody suggested it to me i watcher and then they cut it…

well maybe some one from Lancaster archery could fill me in they where a sponsor of it… maybe it was something they filmed and put on a CD never to be seen on tv again.

thanks all

Academy Sports + Outdoors Recalls Crossbow Cocking Ropes

A few nice crossbow images I found:

The hooks attaching the cocking rope to the crossbow string can break and cause the rope to recoil and cut users.

The aforementioned crossbows and catapults

You set up these fortifications, and then you try to knock down your opponent’s fortifications with your crossbow/catapult. This game rocks when you’re < 10 years old. I suspect it will rock for those of us nearer to 30, as well.
