    Default 2012 bengal limbs.

    I was in an accident involving a horse and my bengal ended up taking a good hit. Both the 70# limbs have visible cracks, but the rest of the bow is fine. I was wondering how much it would cost to get replacement limbs sent to me? I doubt warranty will cover this situation...

    Ouch! Sorry to hear that. Even though the damage isn't due to a product defect I would still suggest contacting Martin to see if they might take sympathy for your situation and provide you a new set of limbs under warranty. I've heard of them doing this in the past, for others in similar situations and who knows, the new owners might consider this an opportunity to help mend some recent poor customer perceptions in hopes word will spread about their efforts towards taking care of customers. If they decide not, I would recommend contacting Barnsdale to get a set of limbs from them. You can't go wrong with these if you have to shell out money for replacement limbs.

    I couldn't help with the actual numbers but if you contact Dave Barnsdale and give him your limb deflection on the bow he will be able to tell you if he has some and what their number might be.

    Well called martin today and they said they will send some new limbs free of charge to the nearest archery shop. This was a nice gesture of them and shows their great customer service.
