Default string break

Has anybody ever had a string break while at full draw? I am wanting to invest in a new string after bow season and was wondering how much it would cost, preferably a bucknasty string. Is bucknasty a good choice or is there better? Would appreciate any broken string horror stories, would make an intersting thread.

I kept a string on a backup PSE bow for 5 years. It finally broke on release this summer. Scared life out of me. Glad I had on a heavy jacket. I quickly had my other bows restrung.

I had one break on my Browning Oasis on an indoor rangejust as I was releasing the arrow. The bow just jumped in my hand and made a loud "pop" sound. My peep was launched to God knows where (never found it) the arrow flew to the target and I was left there holding my bow with the top cam spinning like crazy!

I put it all back together with a new stringand it shot well so I thought I was ok, afterall the arrow did fly to the target......Then I found a very smallcrack in the upper limb about 4 months later...coincedence? I think not.

I had one break on release shooting a carbon arrow. The carbon arrow shattered and I'm very lucky the back half of the arrow didn't go through my hand. It really did a number on my hand, I had a very large junk of carbon fiber burried about a quarter inch into the meat of my hand between the thumb and index finger.
