It's kind of hard with the glare but I do see some breaks in the paint. Do you have before and after? Could the paint be breaking in a void that it previously covered?

that has to be shifting.if the riser was solid and no movement then the paint would not have broke,but no doubt in my mind the riser is shifting...even if it may be verry little movement.no good.all that work and now ther are 3 pc riser marks.sorry to see it.

To answer your question.. I never noticed any shifting marks on either bows before. I always checked them on a regular basis and never saw anything untill I painted them.

You need to draw fine lines across the join (crack) to see if its moving. I hope it isn't. :eek:

Sonny,
Sent ya a reply. I think that Testers model paint stays flexible, but if they think it will be ok I guess I have to go with that. I will still keep and eye on them anyways.
Thanks a tone, Sonny.

So not an issue with the riser but the paint? Like I said, draw a few lines around the join to see if it is moving. :confused:
