Hi guys . Just today I had a limb failure on my 2010 firecat . Sep. 1st is opening day . I plan on taking it to my dealer on Tuseday , but do I need to drive down to Walla Walla this weekend to make it all happen before Opening day ? It's about an 8 hour drive form Seattle. Are you even open on Sat.. What will happen? Replace the limbs or Bow ? I realy do love this bow and have taken game with it . The only thing that needs to happen is to be up and ready for opening day . So please help if there is any help to give .

Welcome to the forum! :)

It would pay to call Martin directly and find out for sure, they might want you to go through your dealer. With so little time until the opening its a real bad time for this to happen. I always have another bow as a backup just in case, not that a second bow is a solution to your problem.

Hope it gets fixed quickly.

I had the same thing happen with my '09 Firecat last year. Talked to Martin first, then my local shop. I had Martin send the limbs to them, then I went and picked them up. Turn around time was 4 days. If you leave it up to your local dealer, you are at his mercy. Some dealers just aren't all that enthused about doing repair work, so they'll put it off longer than neccessary.

Take it down to Bob at The Nock Point in Shoreline. He'll take good care of you.
