I picked up a compound bow from a pawn shop to do some target shooting in my backyard. The string is starting to fray so I'd like to get it replaced. Anyone know a shop that can restring it? The closer to Golden the better. Seems DIY-able but given the high tension and the fact I've never done it before, it's probably best to have a pro do it.

So a couple things I've discovered about this topic:

1) the bow has a hairline crack starting and is probably not worth restringing (I suppose that's what I get for being cheap and buying it used).
2) I called Bass Pro Shops and they quoted me $140 for restringing. F that. Then called Dicks SG who would install new strings for $20 but I have to supply them.
