First off, i just sold my "other" bow last weekend. Today i was shooting my bow, getting ready for my first ever 3D fun shoot this weekend. And guess what happened, on shot number 26 i splintered my bottom limb. I heard an unusal noise so i stoped shooting to inspect my bow, and sure enough...:mad: I then called my dealer who is just an awesome guy to deal with. Just asked me where and what happen, so i told him then he asked for the numbers on the limb, which i gave him. Then he told me it was going to take three weeks to get me my new limb's :mad: LOL....i just wanna cry right now! I'm not sure if you guy's will be able to see what i am talking about in the pic. It's a very small splinter and my dealer told me to back out my limb bolts and not shoot it till he gets my limb's changed.....:mad:.......LOL. Thing's could be worse, just wanna cry though.

I know how you feel MBH. My limbs on the PSE I had were replaced, and I had to have my Jaguar's limbs replaced as well.:( I won't say how long I waited, because it definitely won't make you feel better.:D

Oh my dealer will do everything in his power to get me my limb's ASAP. I kinda felt bad for my dealer cause he is such a nice guy. When i explained what happen i could tell just by his voice that had he had one of his own bows in my DL he would have let me borrow it. LOL. I could tell he felt really bad. He was the guy that got me to shoot martin bows and he was also the guy telling me for the last two years to give 3d fun shoots a chance...lol And when i finally agree to give it a try, this happened....lol What's even more funny is i called him this morning before my limb cracked to tell him im in on the fun shoot and that i was going to get my bow ready today......lol

to martinbowhunter,

i was hoping to get a set of the new power limbs to replace the cracked limb on my 2010 SC but apparently they're on back order right now. so i can't comment on them. being the impatient sort i've checked into the price of some barnsdale limbs, but again i have no experience with them.

so, i guess what i'm saying is i can't comment on either one.

buy the one set of limbs,then hit Ebay and pick up another whole bow for that price. Do a search on there for Martin. There's some great deals to b had.

If you can convince the wife, the limbs cost $200, you will need $400 for both sets, buy one for $120 and get a back up bow off ebay with the left over $280.:D

while i'm happy for you, it seems i'm still stuck. spoke to Martin yesterday and was told the SC limbs are still on back order. it will probably be another two weeks at least. that means i will not have it for Augusta and maybe not Bedford.

i love the bow, but i'm beginning to feel a little skittish about not having it to shoot. i last shot it a month ago last Sunday when i discovered the crack in the top limb.

i know its not Joel's fault, but he told me the limbs would be available last week.

i may have to invest in some Barnsdale limbs if Martin can't come through. that's another $150 but i've never been known for my patience.

Thank's man. Suck's that you limb's are on back order. I hope everything work's out for you. And if it makes you feel better, what i was told wasn't written in stone. So i am keeping my fingers crossed.
