    Yeah, I'm glad I don't believe everything I read, because I've NEVER in my years of shooting Martin heard about a riser blowing apart.

    Martin gets hammered on so hard,i guess it's tough being on top.It's like on a post about a Martin seeker somebody said like"what if the riser brackets come loose and your brace height changes then what huh".I guess if you worry about that you would worry about your rifle scope comming loose too.So much B.S. sometimes i just shake my head.

    No big deal, people have been posting rubbish about risers 'blowing up' for a long time. Never seen one myself.

    Well fellas let me tell you with certainty. Martin risers do break. Ive shot Martins for over ten yrs. and shot for them for 7+ yrs. The first riser that broke on me was an M2000 Cougar, then my favorite bow they could not replace for me because they had no more was a Blue S3 riser and the last one was a S4 riser. So fellas they can and do break from time to time.
    BTW none of mine blew apart perse.

    Initially yes. On the S3 and S4 The feel at the shot (vibrations from the bow) and mior points of impact were different was a key indication something wasn't right. On the Cougar the bow callapsed inward at the shot.

    Pics??? These incidents happened over a 10 yr. period. Each time it happened all I was interested in was gettin my riser replaced. I didn't need proof. When Joel saw the riser after sending it back was proof enough.

    All I was saying (to those who believe me or not) is it does/can happen and it is not always a catostrophic explosion.
