I have broadhead bumped my string a few times but thankfully have not cut one yet.

Easiest way to cut one that I have found is by shooting a carbon with a "ever-so-slightly" fractured shaft at the nock end.

Check your nocks EVERY time. Twist the nock, and if it rotates with a medium force the shaft probably needs culled.

When you pull the trigger the string will force the nock into the shaft and and the shaft edge will cut your string. It makes a lot of racket! :shock:

Came close once but the broad head was dulled for target practice. Could have been nasty.

No problem Mike, I'm just teasing you, I know it was not one of your custom strings that broke.

Oh yeah !!!!
One time sitting on the ground behind Mom and Dads when I first started . Pulled my arrow out of the quiver and accidentally bumped the string . It was a quick chain reaction of the string coming apart . :shock: :lol:
