Where can I get a new string for my Viper quick?
I hate to admit it but..I got the bow today and set it up. I was sighting it in and on the fourth shot I must not have seated the arrow all the way and the DFI caught the string. The center serving is cut and unraveled. The arrow ended up on the table right in front of the bow.Wyverns or tenpoint. So what happened to the string.
I don't think it will dry-fire if the arrow is not seated all the way.I hate to admit it but..I got the bow today and set it up.

It was cocked for sure, I felt it release and catch on the DFI. If it was cocked on the DFI it wouldn't have damaged the serving. I think I pushed the arrow under the holder brush and just up against the DFI instead of all the way in, that's why it just pushed the arrow off the rail. I've been shooting a Nitro X, it doesn't seem to have as much resistance when going past the DFI. What it boils down to is I messed up.I don't think it will dry-fire if the arrow is not seated all the way.
Perhaps you did not push down fully on the Trigger Bix when cocking, and cocked on the DFI pin?
I didn't get anywhere with the phone call. I then emailed Randy Wood, he is sending me a new string even though I made it clear that I messed up. More points for their customer service.Good that you have a back up. You are correct if the arrow stayed on the table. A partial dry fire usually gets the arrow at least most of the way to the target. TP will get you up and running pretty fast I hope.
Ten Point says that using other than factory strings would void the warranty. I don't know if I would want to lose that.I think you should PM Martymig and have him build you a set of strings and cables for when you need them again. He does excellent work at decent prices. I keep a spare set of his for my Scorpyd which is currently shooting his string and cables.
I contacted Randy at Ten Point on Monday, I had a new string in my hand Wednesday. I put it on, sighted in and am ready for this weekend. Can't say enough about the customer service.Please understand that YOU CAN dry fire the bow without an arrow in or on the flight rail. I own a Viper and have dry fired mine, ONCE.
You may notice that the catch paws may scrub the trigger latch pin after a partial or full DF. This is due to the catch lever pivot pin slightly bending.
IF you find that you have to push the trigger box past the catch paws when attempting to slide the trigger down the rail then you have a bent pivot pin.
It is a 3/32 X 1.25" ALLOY pin. Very simple to replace for anyone that has mechanical aptitude. Else, send it to TP.
I had >500 shots on my original string. So, the quality is there on TP's string. Not worth voiding your warranty...… $30.00 from TP.
If you ever DF the bow, you will.I contacted Randy at Ten Point on Monday, I had a new string in my hand Wednesday. I put it on, sighted in and am ready for this weekend. Can't say enough about the customer service.
I had seen your post about the pin bending but haven't noticed any trouble with it yet. I am a machinist so could probably replace the pin myself. What kind of alloy is it? Do you have pictures of how it's done?
