None so far, but the plastic has worn prettty bad.
I'm interested to see what some people say though.

I was just curious. On mine the only thing that is worn is the rubber coating but other than that they look fine.

5 + years and going strong. I did replace the shrink wrap a couple years ago. Bought it off Ebay. Needs replaced again. Easy to do and fairly cheap.

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.

Cables

I have replaced my outer coating on the cables once and I've had my stand for 4 years. It is due again this year.

I've used electrical tape too in spots that needed it. I'm sure you could probably also use that liquid electrical tape stuff as well.

My cables are going strong, on 3rd season coming up, gonna replace the shrink wraps soon, but like was metioned before, unless you damaged it pretty bad, you should be ok

Mine are going on their 4th year. The cable itself is fine, just the rubber coating is worn. Going to look into replacing them after this season.

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:

cables

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
