A few weeks ago I traded a friend of mine a skateboard that I didn't use for a crossbow that needed a new cable and string that he wasn't going to fix. Win-win. Well I took the top off of the bow, so I only had the bow part that needed to be fixed. Then I went up to Gander Mountain with some cash. They guy working in archery said since he couldn't tell what kind of crossbow it was he wouldn't know what size cables or string to order. I'm no expert but there's got to be a way to measure it. I went home dissappointed, but it was probably my fault so no big deal. The guy I got the bow from Had no idea what kind it was and had peeled all the stickers identifying it off. An hour of research later I found out what I needed and had ordered the cables and string. It all got here today, so I went back to Gander(the only place in Kingston I know of that does bow repair) and a different person was at the archery department. Well I gave him the bow, the cables and string and asked him to string it up. Well after he looked at it for a few minutes he showed me a different crossbow, and tried to explain how he could not understand how the cables and string were supposed to go on the bow and wants me to contact the company and get instructions. Now I was upset, but still could be my fault. Maybe I mis-identified the bow, thus ordered the wrong cables, so back to the internet. I made sure I ordered the cables for the bow I think I have...Yup MK250. Do I have an MK250 found out how to disassemble it and all the intructions matched up to disassemble it and it looks the same so I'm pretty sure it's the right bow. I emailed the online store that I got the cables from about getting instructions and they were useless ("maybe you can show them a picture of the bow and they can figure it out *insert stock photo of the bow that in no way shows the cam the guy couldn't understand*). So, I have to figure it out. It took me less than five minutes to figure out how it is supposed to work. I just have to get a press to do it myself. Going back to Gander tomm. to get a portable press they have for $30(it's a weird cable winch thingy that should work). Grr...wish there wa another store like them, that I wanted to spend money at.
