    That's really an odd one. You didn't have the limb bolts backed too far did you? I'd definitely have your dealer take a look-see and/or contact customer service, but with only drawing a couple inches I doubt I doubt there'd be any serious damage to other parts (limbs, etc). At least let's hope so.

    I dont know what happened. The pro shop 40 mile away said it looked ok but without being. Restrung they couldnt tell if it was warped( riser or cams) anyway i can check this at home.

    Well first step is to find out what went wrong and why, then we'll figure out if it was stupid or not

    Did the proshop have any ideas as to what happened? The Limb bolt blowing out seems pretty catastrophic to me....

    Martin says to never shoot the bow if the limb bolts are turned more than 5 turns out. Is it possible that during your adjusting on the cables, you forgot to turn the bolts back in before you drew back? I can't see it wrecking anything other than the barrel nut, and possibly the limb bolt. Either one should be easy enough to replace.
