    Have the limbs back off . I can see through the barrel nuts. Wouldn't even think about shooting it till someone loooks at it. Will try to get better pictures tomorrow.

    Well I have a back up bow . Will be setting the High Country up in the morning. That Will be interesting cause I'll be switching back to a right hand bow.

    Actually the e-clip coming off would cause the limb to splinter as there is no yoke to hold equal pressure and this would cause limb to twist and splinter under a heavy load.

    Yep, I think it is possible it could do that. I also believe that if the limb split it would be the weaker side and put a side load on the e clip and pop it off. There really is no way to say how it happened, it is just a guess at best IMO.

    Good luck to you, hope that the High Country works out for you, even if you have to shoot from the correct side. Really hope that you get your Slayer back up and shooting, hate to see a bow go down, especially a Slayer ! Knocking wood, both of mine are rock solid.

    Hey RJD, a completely off topic question...how do you like those limb dampeners on your bow??? Gander Mtn has them on clearance and I have been debating picking up a pack. Do they move around? Are they too bulky?

    Thanks in advance, sorry about your bow. I'm sure Martin will help you fix it up, they've given me top-notch service to the point that I'll probably never buy another brand simply because of their service.

    As I said, I can't clearly see what damage the limb actually has. Further more for the limb to twist enough to put enough pressue on an e-clip to pop it off would really be severe and would most likely cause the string to derail. I've seen a few cases of e-clips being missing or not being seated right and later popping off while shooting. This can allow the axle to slide part way out of the limb and cause what we are looking at. Just from my years of experience I think this is more probable than just outright limb failure. But then again, with all the stress and vibration that goes on with a bow being shot I guess anything can happen.

    I understand what you are saying Barry. It makes sense too. What I was getting at was maybe the limb spit on the shot, then the unequal pressure caused the e-clip to pop off. I would imagine the limbs would have some eratic and violent movements if one split.

    I it all turns out well RJD.

    Ron called on Tuesday. Limbs are on the way.

    Blonebomber:

    Like them . They really helped quite the Slayer down. They are pretty tight on the limb. They came in a set with a couple of Jaxs and string leaches. The leaches sucked, they only lasteda few weeks. Back to cats whiskers!!!

    Hutch:

    Ron seems to thinck the clip was already off somehow. Then this is the after affects.

    Glad to read that your Slayer will soon be back in action.
