I was out mule deer and antelope hunting this weekend (got a mule deer and shot and lost a big antelope) and had my string cut on my brand new elite e-500. The strings are winners choice. The cables are still good, so I really only need a new string. I am interested in sending it to crackers, but would that work to still use the old cables or would you go all new? Also, what is it gonna cost and what would be the time frame from shipping it out to getting it back. For anyone interested, I'll post pics of the mule deer later.
