    Question mx201/701? not sure which?

    can a crack in a bow be fixed? its near the limb tip. also any info on this bow or advice for repair would be great as i cant find any. cant tell from the writing whether it is a 701 or 201 but have searched both with no luck.

    Can you post some pictures so we can see what your looking at. A lot of unknown bows have been identified here from pictures. Welcome to the forum.

    It looks as though its trying to delamanate, does the crack open up as you draw the bow? If its comming apart, there should be a difference when its strung and when its not, will the crack catch your fingernail or snag a cotton ball? I'd call customer service ( sorry, don't know the number ) and explain it to them, see what they can do. Have a clearer pic ready to email to them. Hope it can be repaired, its a beautifull bow. I'd like to see more of it, strung if possible, those wooden parts are overlays, don't really think the crack extends into the limbs itself.

    Thank you, i think its very nice too i want to shoot it so bad! yes its wide enough or should i say seperated enough to feel the crack it actually get's tight again when strung. I also think its not into the limb, but is definately seperating it would almost seem as though someone was trying to string it backwards it seems to be a strange place to crack on the string side like it was forced in the wrong direction. sigh and sadly seems as though it was left strung it is warped a tiny bit on the very ends of the limbs, when youy draw back the string does not stay within the groove, can this be fixed aswell?4.jpg

    Since the crack gets tighter when srtung, I think that it could be glued back in place. Don't really understand what you're saying is going on with the limb tips, when draw the string should leave the groves, but if I'm getting it right, if you looked down the length of the srtung string, the limb tips are twisted? If thats what you mean, can you take a photo of that? What happens when the bow is drawn, do the limb tips twist? And as you let the bow down, they twist back in line with the string? In the mean time, search google, I entered recurve repair, most hits where guys asking a question like yours, reading a few of them I found this place.

    They claim to be able to fix most recurve troubles, worth a shot. If I were you, I'd be dying to shoot it. Back to what bow it is.... Riser reminds me of the Dreamcatcher, as does the white limbs, except its a 64" bow, more of a target recurve length rather than a huinting bow, and looking on Martins website, going back to the 2008 site the Dreamcatcher is a 60 " bow... So am gonna have to say I don't know. But I like it! Hope that it can be repaired.
