    Since these photos are so blurry, it isn't possible to see the other spots on the limbs where the paint is cracked near the areas shown. Has anyone else ever seen something like this on a new (or used, for that matter) bow?

    The pics are blurry. You need to back off a little. Apparently the camera doesn't focus that close. No doubt though that the cable slide is broken. I'd get some clearer pics and call Brandon at the warranty dept.

    This might be a little clearer, but I'm using my phone which is no spring chicken. I'll use an actual camera next time.

    Looks like it got slammed around a little bit in shipping at some point. It almost looks gouged on the limbs. I'm sure Brandon and the folks at Martin will take care of you though. They have some of the best customer service around.

    x2 I agree with Ehunter. You shouldn't have a problem getting everything resolved.

    jaguar huh? Interesting, considering they haven't been offered as a compound in a while. The damage would be covered by Martin, just give them a call, or call KMArchery hut and see what their options would be. Out of curiosity, could you post a couple of pics of the whole bow? When you get it repaired, you'll have to let us know how it shoots for ya! Oh, and welcome to the forum!
