Hello

I just purchased a new Martin Pantera (my first bow ), did a littlle practice shooting. ( 50 arrows )When I was packing for my first hunting trip I noticed a small crack in my upper limp ( 2/3 deep and 1.5 cm lang ) in the middle of fork that holds my cam.
I tried to see if it moved when i shoot, but i don't think so.
Can i go on my hunting trip without the fear that the limb will crack totally?

Thank you
Ps I leave tommorow

It's kind of late to post a reply, but I would keep a close eye on it and call Martin as soon as you return.

Hi, that is where my limb cracked/split/delaminated. Personally I would not shoot the bow and would recommend replacing the limbs ASAP.
I was lucky as when the limb went it still held itself fairly well together but when a limb splits or breaks anything can happen, especially under compound pressures.
