Well, then you are not local to me. (Ohio) If you were local, I'd say just bring me the cables you want replaced, and I'd cut and fit new ones at cost. I work with several sizes of cables, and have the tools to cut and crimp them. This is a small part of what I do for a living, but I can't help.you in Michigan.
I am not in the business of supplying cables, but I would help out a fellow hunter from this site.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
