    Can't really tell. Take another pic from a little farther away os it's in better focus.

    Not more limb problems!

    Looks similar to my 2007 Pantera and I shot it for a while until the split in the fork, didn't shoot it after that. What bow/limb is this on? And look for a 'macro' setting on your camera, that will help with the photo.

    Sorry to see this mate.

    Good to hear its fixed. If your happy with the speed and your arrows still spine good then its not a problem, you might shoot better with the lower dw too! Was the bow with the previous limbs meant to be 65#?

    Maybe ,but i have never had a bow measure at it's max DW usally a little over.Actually these limbs were a little longer and a deeper fork area is what i was told by the tech who worked on it.These are the newest limbs Martin has so the makeup of them maybe different from older limbs.

    That's interesting, I didn't know there was any difference except the construction.
