Visually inspect the string, Look at the serving for any snaking of strands underneath. How much do you shoot? Back before I was married I shot every day and shot a tournament every weekend, plus league night. back then I would replace it just before bow season and it would usually last till the following year.. I would often pull my cable and string off and re-serve them. Also light weight arrows will cause abnormal wear on a string.. mark your cam position this will let you know if your string is stretching. this can be remedied by twisting the string or cable to take up slack. - Hope this helps, Kevin
I also have a Legacy, and I waited about 4 years before I changed them, Probably too long. The reason I changed them was because they stretched far enough to put the Bow out of spec. and even after twisting them to bring it back into specs I lost about 4-5 lbs of draw weight. I think it depends on how much you shoot, and of course if you keep it wax good. Some say change them once a year, I think maybe every two years. On an old string/cable it might look ok, but could have some damage inside that you can't see. Better to be safe... Your Legacy is what 5 or 6 years old?
