Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Crossbow strings
- Crossbow strings do take a lot of abuse at the loops. In part because
this is where the shock is greatest at the end of the power stroke. But
also in part because the string is bent around a very small radius.
Another small radius is the sharp bend at the release nut when spanned.
So these are the two places I have seen crossbow strings fail.
