    string stop/suppressor

    I was just shooting in the garden and as i released the string my string stop/suppressor snapped off where it meets the bow, literally right through the metal. Somehow I still managed to make a good shot!

    i suppose it must have weakened gradually over the years from the hits/vibrations. the bow is a 2013 bear outbreak which i got in 2014 and have'nt used it that much. it was a bit cold outside which may have made it brittle but it wasn't freezing or anything.

    Has this happened to anyone else? do i need it? if if so how can i fix it?

    There is still metal in the hole which i'm not sure i could get out.
    Cheers

    On the Hoyt I use this bar is threaded and screws in so hopefully yours does too.

    You will need to carefully drill into the centre of the stub remaining in the riser then use an appropriately sized stud extractor to withdraw it. Care & patience will see you through.

    Yes mine is screw in luckily so will give that a go at some point, but it is fine to shoot without it correct? i have been doing so and it seems fine.

    No idea - I tend to work on the basis that if something is fitted then it's there for a reason so I would rather not shoot the bow until I had replaced the broken part.

    Some compounds shoot very nicely with or without a string stopper. Others are a bit inclined to kick about if the stopper is removed. I've had bows from both groups. If yours is fine without, shoot it without. If you feel you want to replace it, the stub needs to come out.
