My New Shadowcat Blew UP!!!!!!
Bugger. I went down to my range for some tuning and practice. I had shot about 30 arrows when as I was drawing back BANG!! I only waited eight weeks to get it and have had it for only two weeks.
Both the control cables broke, the cable guard was almost torn out, the arrow was smashed and there was some minor damage to the rest and sight.
I wouldn't have thought this would happen to a new bow with less than 150 shots through it.
The pics show what im talking about.
Here is Martins warranty statement. So much for their U-beaut Double helix strings
All Martin Compound Bows are warranted against defects in materials or workmanship to the original owner , on all risers, limbs, limb pockets, axles, bearings, and cams (everything except the string and cables) for 10 years (starting at the date of purchase) and then 50% list price for the life of the product*. (Strings and cables are not included, and should be changed either every season, or anytime they show wear, whichever comes first.)
I will let my dealear know ASAP Monday morning.

I would call Martin I had a minor problem with my 06 Saber too. sent it back and they fixed it no questions asked .
Martin are sending me a new set of cams and strings. Thanks fellas
Stuff happens to bows... It doesn't matter who you buy them from. It's great that Martin stands behind their product, and takes care of the customers.
i have one too and the first thing i did when i got mine was to put new cables and string on it . it shoots very well and my groupings are very tight i have had 2 robin hoods so i have had to go to 5 spot to save my arrows . the best bow i have ever had my hands on \ thanks to martin
I got my bow back from the Pro Shop. They replaced the strings, cables, cams and the limbs. They put extra heavy duity cables on it. I a happy camper again.
