I have a 2005 Constitution and just changed the cord on my ripcord drop away. It was an easy fix. I used the D-loop material that they sell in most archey shops in the little packages. There are 2 screws that you need to remove carefully on the side plate. The plate will want to turn as you remove the screws. Under the plate is a spring with 2 different ends. Make note of how it is facing when you remove it. Take out the old cord and make sure you put it through the small piece of metal that goes in the slot. Melt the end as you would a D-loop and re-thread it in the housing. I have found most of the abrasion occurs just outside of the housing where you fasten it to your cable. I guess this is caused because of too much of an angle being used where you are attaching it to your bottom cable either serving it in or using the little football that Ripcord give you for ataching it to your bottom cable. I have found on the bowtechs it is easier to attach it through the cable slide [there is even a hole already there for this purpose] and just put a small knot on the back side. On the bowtech's this will give you a straighter line in drawing back the cable and has worked perfectly on my constitution for thousands of shots. Just my 2 cents and what has worked for me. Hope it helps. JJTCastle1911 said:Hi - I've got a Ripcord on my 06 Bowtech Old Glory. I've owned it since May this year and have shot probably just under 1,000 arrows through it. The string on the Ripcord is frayed to the point that it looks like it is about to snap. The fraying is right where the cord enters the housing.
2 quesitons - 1) Is this normal? I was hoping to get more shots out of it before I needed to worry about the string. 2) Does anyone know how to change the string, and if it is even possible to do without sending it back to the manufacturer?
OK - I think that was three questions, but any help would be appreciated.
