    Default Alien Z blowup

    What would you do if all you could salvage is the riser? Bent cams and at least one limb bad, is it worth rebuilding and what would it cost?

    What caused it? Product defect under warranty or user error(dry fire)?
    If it were either of my bows, I'd spend another $150 for another loaded bow.

    Sorry to hear that Bob! Are you alright? I would talk to Martin and see what they would do for cost. They also have that trade in deal going!

    Call them and get them to warranty the parts and mail them to you, put it together yourself or take it to a dealer . Not worth sending it in though.

    Your bow? Call Martin.

    Bow you're thinking about picking up for little or nothing and rebuilding? Forget it.

    No not my bow, mishap with arrow rest and boom. He'll call Martin next week. I've never seen such a train wreck. I would rebuild it if I could get all the parts for $200 or less, although it's been through 3 limbs delaminating.

    Wow that's quite a mishap for a rest!

    A HUGE THANK YOU to Joel. Martin sent parts to a dealer and they put my friends Z back together for very little $ I Mounted all his accessories and first shot in Paper was a bullet hole. Went out this am to beat the heat, 108 here at 7:46 pm. one sight adjustment and he's back in the game. Martin was a tough act to follow with C.S. Only time will tell, hope the fourth set of limbs hold up. I am looking hard at PSE right now for my next bow. THE END.
