View Full Version : Fixing the Outlaws Weak Link

Well I absolutely love this bow. However there have been a number of complaints with the cable serving being damaged by the cam and draw stop. I first put a couple layers of shrink tubing on the stop pin hoping that might be all that was needed. It helped preventing any wear on the cable but I noticed that there was a slight separation in the serving where it was hitting the draw stop pin. There was also a little wear on the serving down lower near the cam.

I decided to apply some serving on top of the existing serving in these two areas. I found a really good video on how to properly start and stop the serving...

I've shot a couple dozen arrows after applying it and it doesn't seem to have any adverse affect on shooting. After the "added serving" starts to wear, it can be easily replaced. Took around 30 minutes or so to do and hopefully will prevent premature cable wear.

Just though I'd pass this along.

Here's a couple pics...

Great video friend. Thanks for the tip. I also saw in another thread a recommendation for a Bomar draw stop. The thread was "Best Upgrades for an Outlaw" in this section. I'm gonna order one of the serving tools right now! Thanks again!

I like that concept!

Is this the correct contact info for Bomar?

My cabelas regulator is having the same issue. I will be replacing strings and cables with vapor trails when funds allow. The stock strings are decent on these bows but still stretch and servings wearing and splitting is not a good sign.
