bye bye bow
Well all the hard work ive done to get this bow in order.........made a dl adj with cables, made sure everything was back in place drew back about 2in and pow bow exploded, limb bolt pulled out of the barrelnut somehow i guess,
i dont know whats broke whats not i hope martin will take care of me.....any suggestions guys
That's really an odd one. You didn't have the limb bolts backed too far did you? I'd definitely have your dealer take a look-see and/or contact customer service, but with only drawing a couple inches I doubt I doubt there'd be any serious damage to other parts (limbs, etc). At least let's hope so.
i was at 66lbs i dont know what happened....... glad it didnt happen when ichecked the draw wieght.....ill have to call customer service no martin dealer near me,
all the little ball thingys???? that line the limbbolt up correctly came off
Heres the deal
I dont know what happened. The pro shop 40 mile away said it looked ok but without being. Restrung they couldnt tell if it was warped( riser or cams) anyway i can check this at home.
I cant believe i did something this dum
Well first step is to find out what went wrong and why, then we'll figure out if it was stupid or not :p
Did the proshop have any ideas as to what happened? The Limb bolt blowing out seems pretty catastrophic to me....
Said bolts were out to far i swear i checked em
Martin says to never shoot the bow if the limb bolts are turned more than 5 turns out. Is it possible that during your adjusting on the cables, you forgot to turn the bolts back in before you drew back? I can't see it wrecking anything other than the barrel nut, and possibly the limb bolt. Either one should be easy enough to replace.
Well if i was wrong lesson learned coulda been worse,
Yea my limbbolt and barrel nut is toast. Where would i find these ima get two new of each
And how do u check for warped limbs, cams and risers
Call Joel, you'll be all taken care of.:cool:
