Got a free bow, now what?

Recommended Posts

My brother-in-law gave me his perfectly good older bow when he bought a new one. It is a Darton, I think the model is warrior but I could be wrong. It needs a new string. My father-in-law says he has a string for that bow that has a lifetime warranty that cost $30. Should I just buy that one from him and let him help me put it on? Or would I be better off going to Cabin Fever and letting them do it so they can check other things over? Maybe I should just buy a string from Cabin Fever because then I think they put them on for free, or at least they used to. I have sights for it but I will probably need an arrow rest. Is there any style that is recommended over others? Any help would be great.

Take it in, let them set it up. It may need to be lengthened or shortened for you. I would look at a drop-away rest of some kind. The Ripcord seems to be all the rage right now.

Good luck!

a lifetime warrenty on a bowstring just means it shouldn't fail, but the string will wear out like anything else.

Unless he has the packaging for it and you know it matches the specs exactly, I would go in and get a new string. Who knows how old the one he has is.

I also would go to Cabin Fever and let one of them check it out. They can make sure the draw length is correct, make sure there aren't any defects and that its right for you. Thats where I get all my bow work done. They handled my Darton before I sold it so I know they will take care of you.

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
