Heres my deal. I have shot Martin bows all my life from an old prowler to a razor x for target to a cougar 3 a slayer a savanah longbow and now a 2008 firecat pro x. I bought the bow in january of 08 shot it a month or 2. cracked limb on top right down the middle of the limb in the v of the fork. Ok got it fixed i figured brand new bow new cams whatever martin should figure it out. Shot the bow untill july when i was sighting in my boadheads and heard a pop. After looking at it found that the limb was cracked in the same place same looking crack. Well i should have time to get it fixed before hunting season in Sept. well i only missed a couple weeks not a big deal. Now i susposedly have the newer limbs that the defect is fixed. Was out hunting on sat. morning and looking at my bow and i notice something. What the heck my top limb is cracked in the exact same place as the other 2 sets of limbs. Now i know people are going to say well your shooting to light of arrows or you pressed the bow wrong. well i shoot a 350 gr. arrow at 68 lbs. and i havent had the bow pressed since the last set of limbs were put on. I dont know if martin has fixed the problems with the limbs or if it is something to do with the riser or cams wich are cat cams. I guess im at a loss and at this point im getting really irritated that i cant go a year without a limb failure. The bow is just about 2 years old now with the 3rd set of cracked limbs. Do i just put new limbs on every six months hoping that helps? What does a guy do?
