    I bought a predator avi. After about 20 shots i noticed the cable looked like a chunch was taken out of it. Im really disappointed. Before that i could get the mounting rail to stay tight to sight it in.

    Please help...I send Barnett a email but no response.. Ive read that the cable issue is common problem..Sounds like a serious problem to me. Ive had this thing for 3 days and im already out of commision...Im afraid it will blow up with the frayed cable...

    Can someone please help.

    thanks

    solution has been found..

    With the help of a very generous member ive gotten all the advice and hellp i could need..

    I resolved the scope mount loosening with some threadlock...no biggie.

    As far as the cables fraying i called barnett and they are shipping me out a new set. But i still wasnt satisfied. I just spent 600 bucks on a crossbow and shot it 25 times and im out of commision. I also will have to pay to get them put on crossbow. So i called back. I hate to complain but felt i was 100% in right to be upset. They then offered me free 5 bolts to offset cost of getting cables put on..All in all still kinda upset about it but i believe barnett did a good job trying to make it right. I think anyone who spends 600 dollars and has issues right out of the gate would be a little upset about it even though they tried to make it right...

    I think you are right to be a little upset but they listened to your complaint and are trying to make it right. But why not an even half dozen instead of 5 arrows.

    Call back Barnett and get a Cable slide that fits in the Cable groove it's free and you get many more shots out of your cables. Also I have found the Bow shops that assemble your bow and you buy it hanging up do not wax the cables at all at assembly. So you go home and think they assembled this to the owners manual but 9 times out of 10 they don't and I did not even get the box.

    a cable slide goes on the cable under the rail so the cables dont touch and rub
