I have an 08" Cheetah and never had a .problem. There has been problems with the Firecat limbs but haven't heard any problems with the Cheetah. The Cheetah has a solo-cam which is alot less agressive than the Firecat so its alot easier on the limbs. I'm sure Martin will take care of you and you should be fine. I would make sure when the new limbs are put on that your cable yoke is not out of adjustment because this could cause cam or idler lean and this may cause problems.

Yes, three cracked limbs on two different Martin bows over the past six months!

Yep on my Pantera with M-Pro single cam. Plenty of threads here about it, not too hard to find on this forum.

Looks like the 2010 limbs are going to be the same Dave. Maybe 2012 will be a good year. ;)

I had my 09 Bengal bottom limb split into 3 pcs. Sent it back to Bowhunters superstore where I bought it from. I just heard from them they sent it back to Martin and Martin has built me a whole new bow..... If this is true I'm very impressed with the customer service!!!!!!!

Great news if it happens. Assuming it does, I will agree wholeheartedly, but only if I get the same treatment on my Moab!

Maybe if we move to the US? :D
