Broke a limb today

11 posts in this topic

I decided to go spend a little time practicing today with my bow. On about the 10th arrow I heard a pop. I looked down at my lower limb and sure enough it had cracked.

I hope Mathews is quick on a turnaround with new limbs. The guy at the archery shop thought I might have it back by next weekend.

I guess it was better to crack now than about 4 weeks from now!!

I'm shooting an LX right now and it's the first issue I've had. My old MQ1 had a ton of arrows shot threw it and never had an issue.

This is a good reason to keep your old bow as a backup. I plan on buying a new bow next year and I am definatley keeping my old bow as a backup.

Man you'd think they could get a limb to you in less than a week. Just another thought here...do you need to replace both?

The upper limb "looked" fine. I'm not sure what Mathews policy is. I've never replaced one before on a Mathews.

Ya I was just thinking matching up a used one with a new one is all.

They will suggest both limbs be replaced. Which is the right thing to do.

Mathews is sending two limbs for replacement. Hopefully have it in my hand by Sat so I can dial everything in....AGAIN.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
