I bought a new Black Ops Invasion at the end of March. A few days later, I ruptured two discs in my back, while turkey hunting in Kansas. Needless to say, I haven't shot a whole lot this summer.

My back is better now, so I have been shooting more the last couple of weeks. Well, over the weekend, I was shooting and noticed the cable wear shown in the pics. This bow has been in my SKB hard case with nothing sharp nearby. Any idea what could be causing this or has anyone else had a similar issue? I am taking it into the shop tonight. This bow has VERY few shots thru it. :pukey:

I think it is where the draw stop contacts the cable. Mine has some wear but not that bad. Are you slamming into the wall?

Nope. I ease into it. That makes sense, but I sure wouldn't expect that to happen...

IT is where it is going into the mod there is a burr probably. Ive noticed the ones we have sold have done this but that one is pretty bad. I would get someone to buff out the cam that is something I do to all my bows it helps string wear drastically!

Thanks. Will Bowtech warranty this cable? My season starts next Thursday and this kinda sucks.

I would look to see if the cam is leaning too much, causing the mod to cut into the cable. You might need to adjust the yoke.

x2.... But its curious that the contact is on the outside of the string.

I just emailed Bowtech CS. I don't know if my shop will have a replacement cable, so I am trying to get the ball rolling, until I can get a definite answer on the cause tonight. I know a lot of guys shoot these, so I was wondering if I was the only one to experience this problem.

Cam Lean?
Not sure. Bowtech gave me the general email reply that said it would have to be examined and repaired by an authorized dealer, so I will take it in tonight. I hope that we can get it taken care of. Too close to season for something like this.

One of my Specialists does it in the same spot. It isn't from the draw stop, it is where the cable rotates around the module and passes right against a "bushing" on the axle when at full draw. Mine isn't that severe but I have mine yoke tuned. It only does it on the bottom cam.

Your cable needs to be reserved. After that, yoke tune the bow.......it may not eliminate it but it should minimize it.

Sorry that you had the same issue, but glad that you knew exactly what it was. The shop owner builds strings, so hopefully he can reserve the cable. How do I go about yoke tuning?

It doesn't particularly bother me. Thousands of shots haven't worn through. As a matter of fact, I just replaced a set that wore out in other areas before that caused me any real issues.

Here is the "gospel" on yoke tuning. Baldy did an excellent job on this thread and everything applies to your Invasion. Print it and take it to your shop. If they aren't familiar with this they need to be!

Put these bows on a draw board and look again. It isn't the draw stop. It is the end of the module/junction with the axle.
thats what we did and it is the draw stop not the module

I don't have an Invasion sitting here so I have to take your word for it. On the Destroyers and Specialist it is the module.

For the stop to do that, it seems like the cam lean would have to be so bad that the cable was being pulled past the stop. Otherwise, the stop should hit perpindicular to the cable and only contact the rubber with the force that you pull into the wall. If it is the stop, something is seriously wrong.
