The Lil' Banshee bow is a compound bow with an ambidextrous grip and a light draw-weight of approximately 8.16 Kilogram, it is designed for beginning archers. This low draw-weight makes changing the strings of the Lil' Banshee easier than heavier draw-weight compound bows. The Lil' Banshee has less tension on the bow limbs because of the light draw-weight and can be restrung by one person using a bow stringer instead of a bow press.

Things you need

  • Bow stringer

  • New bowstring

Hook the end loop of the new string onto the cable post on the bow's upper pulley.

Attach the bow stringer. Place the longer pouch of the bow stringer around the lower limb. Loop the top of the bow stringer onto the upper limb of the bow.

Place the bow on the ground, and pinch it between your feet. Grip the upper limb, keeping the string secured to the cable post.

Flex the bow by pushing down on the bow stringer's handle. Place the other loop around the lower limb's cable post.

Release the tension from the bow stringer slowly until the bow takes the complete tension from the bowstring. Make sure that both end loops stay on the cable posts.

Detach the bow stringer from the bow and test it at the archery range.
