Hey all. A big HELLO from NY!! This is my first post on this forum. I recently bought a rarely used Martin Slayer Extreme '08 model with the CAT cams. The previous owner shot it a few times, had the original limbs break on him and Martin replaced the limbs for him. He got the bow back, took a few shots with the "improved" limbs and didn't like it so it sat all the way up until last week. I bought it as a bare bow from him thinking this would be a decent bow to use for possibly 3D shoots or even as a back up bow ... well .... I took it into the local pro shop to have it setup and I even called Martin and talked to a Joel about these "improved" limbs as I became aware of the limb problems Martin has on another forum. I was assured from Martin that the "improved" limbs were much better than the originals and the bow should be a joy to shoot!! I got the bow back from having a QAD HD Hunter drop away rest installed, limb savers installed, Sword AccuSight and a S coil installed and got it home and fell in love with the bow!!! For 30 shots anyways .... I heard a very weird noise on the 30th shot, almost like a "PWANNNNGGGGGGG" and I stopped shooting it as I thought something may have come loose like the sights or something. I looked it over carefully only to find the top limb had shattered!!! It is literally cracked in 10-15 places which I can see and although it's still 100% intact, I'm not so sure what to do with this bow!! Is it worth even calling Joel again to tell him that the "improved" limbs have failed even though I'm not the original purchaser? Should I just sell it as a parts bow and take my losses and forever steer clear of Martin bows? I'm really at a loss. A member from the other Forum that I belong to, pointed me to this forum about this bow prior to shooting it yesterday. I should have maybe done more research on this bow ... the pains of being fairly new to something!!
