    Default Cheetah Mag lower limb delamination

    Hey folks new forum for posting. I have a 2010 Cheetah Mag (45-60lb limbs) that the lower limb failed while shooting in a 3-spot tournament competition at a Matthews shop. I shoot indoor 3-spot and 3D and have been very satisfied with my bow. It has never been abused and I am the original owner so I know how it's been handled. I have several calls in with Martin Tech Support and an email but no response...not happy about that. Meanwhile I have a bow I can't shoot and I don't know what, if anything, Martin will do. If I need to get new limbs does anyone know or have a set that will fit a Cheetah Mag? There is a set of Fury limbs on Ebay but I don't know if they will fit. The Ebay item number is 151223895083 if anyone is familiar with the 2 bows.

    Thanks!

    I am no expert, but I strongly doubt those limbs would fit. If you want to purchase limbs I hear GREAT things about Barnsdale, I believe they cost 150$

    I don't think those limbs would fit as they are for the older style of limb pockets, not the Roto-Cup pockets that are on your bow.

    Welcome to the forum! I can understand your frustration, but Martin will get back to you. From what I understand they are trying to work through a backlog of support and they are a little short staffed in that department at the moment. Outside of Martin, I think that Barnesdale would be your next best bet, as previously stated. But I'd wait to see what Martin says first
