    Do you offer replacement for strings that snap during the stringing process?

    I bought 2 packs of Bow Brand Champ 17 from TW for hybriding with Ashaway Monogut 17. I did three frames with no problems. On the fourth frame, on like the third cross, the string snapped upon applying tension (63 lbs). I am using a constant pull machine (Laserfibre MS200TT) and control the rate of tensioning so that tension is applied slowly.

    I have strung this particular frame numerous times without incident. Following the breakage of the Bow - I put some syn gut in the crosses (i am out of gut) and there was no incident. I am an active stringer for the last 4 years and have had no such incident during the stringing of probably a couple hundred frames.

    Please advise.
