Is this normal wear

Ok, this is going to be hard to explain. I was waking my string the other day and i noticed some wear on one of the cables close to the cam. It looks like normal wear to me, so I am not worried about it. The string is 1 year old, and i didnt shoot for a good 7-8 months. Its a 2008 Martin Cheetah Super-Mag. I just want to know your opinions

Normal, just make sure the serving is not seperated and strands are getting cut. If it is seperated you can have it reserved or reserve it yourself.

Yeah it looks its where it rounds the cams! And the metal wrapping seems to be worn down a bit, but it hasnt affected anything, and it is in perfect working condition.
What metal? I had a bengal and the serving separated, I just kept an eye on it and it was fine until I changed strings. I went with Bucknasty strings and this solved the problem.

Just keep an eye on the strands under the serving. If they are not frayed or broken you will be fine. I had mine do the same thing. When you get ready to get new strings I would recommend Bucknasty's. I have no serving separation what so ever. Be sure to order them in advance it takes a while for him to build them but they are well worth the wait.

Thanks for the advice. Funny you say that, I was thinking about when I am going to replace the string today lol
