Not more limb problems! :eek:

Looks similar to my 2007 Pantera and I shot it for a while until the split in the fork, didn't shoot it after that. What bow/limb is this on? And look for a 'macro' setting on your camera, that will help with the photo.

Sorry to see this mate. :(

Well got my new limbs on today,everything is back to normal,only thing is it maxes out at 61# instead of 64# as before oh well still a fast son of a gun.
Also ran into another member from here goes by( Bucknut17),all the techs were ribbing him about his slayer,funny guy he was small world we live in,ok thats it.

Good to hear its fixed. If your happy with the speed and your arrows still spine good then its not a problem, you might shoot better with the lower dw too! Was the bow with the previous limbs meant to be 65#?

Maybe ,but i have never had a bow measure at it's max DW usally a little over.Actually these limbs were a little longer and a deeper fork area is what i was told by the tech who worked on it.These are the newest limbs Martin has so the makeup of them maybe different from older limbs.

That's interesting, I didn't know there was any difference except the construction. :confused:

Because i was having my limbs replaced and before me someone had a slayer also with a splinter in them,those limbs were laying on the counter for all to see.They were saying like martin better get a grip on the limb situation or they wont make 61yrs in business.I did and still do alot of business at this shop and not sure about bucknuts17,but he comes in there enough that they always give him a hard time but it's all in fun,this archery shop,Pats Archery in Okmulgee OK is the best shop ive ever been to,these guys really do know there stuff and will usually bend backwards to help you out.
