As long as your cables don't have broken strands or have incurred some off the wall damage like having them pinched or creased by something heavy that could compromise the strands under the coating they should outlast you.
Those things are tuff stuff. Rated to something like 8,000lbs of static weight if I remember correctly.
Same here.....did the wrap over the cables. I use electrical tape also. I do however have a set of extra cables JUST IN CASE! :wink: I don't wanna be running around looking for equipment when i could be sitting in a tree!!!
I used mine for 2 years. I also practice out of mine in my yard. My rubber coating was all beat up. I replaced mine. I would rather be safe then sorry.All that time and money preparing and practicing to hunt I can spend $35 for the peace of mind that I am safe. I use the summit viper. Just my .02. :wink:
I've had the cables/climber for 6+ years with no problem other that the coating. I went to Home Depot and bought electricians shrink wrap and replaced the worn parts pretty easily. Cost about $2-$3. Todd
