    Default Shadowcat Risers

    There is a thread on another forum where the question has been asked about the mechanical integrity of the Shadowcat riser.

    I have two Cats and it is pretty obvious where the joints are on the three piece riser, but the bows shoot well and are as accurate as anything I have used in the past, so obviously the risers work.

    Have there been any genuine cases of Shadowcat riser failure? Or is this another 'I heard of a guy who knew someone....' situation base one one or two isolated incidents?

    Link? Found this but it might be the older model, posted June 29th, 2008 on AT.

    second, the exact same thing happened to the replacement riser

    That's the one Hutch.

    It's the comment about the 2010 Shadowcat that has me scratching my head. I don't want to call anybody out, without good cause, but two broken risers with the same owner has me puzzled.

    Not saying it isn't martins fault but not 100% it is. My Bengal is a 3 piece riser and it seems to be no different then a one piece. Now I treat my bow nice and keep it tuned No banging, dry fires etc. How does he treat his bow. Also how does he tune his bow. Another thing is the story true. I have seen some stories on AT that are not true. Just to cause trouble. A lot of info is missing.
