    No they wont.

    The 2009 limbs had a drilled hole for the steel caps that fit into the limb cup.
    The 2010 limbs do not longer have drilled holes as they 'sit' on two rockers build into the roto limp cup allowing the roto cup to rotate.

    The above is correct, but there are other things. The 2010 limbs are narrower by about 3/8". You have to change the Roto cups, limbs, axles, and cam. Even the older cam is not compatable with the newer limbs due to excessive limb twist and resulting cam lean. And with newer cam I would venture a guess that new string/cable would be required.

    Cost? More than a new bow just for the parts.

    Sag, I don't even know if Martin contacts you when you return a bow. Just an educated guess here, but I'd say it takes about 4 business days just for the bow to get to them. I live in Pa. and shipping to or from Martin is just about a week in most cases---each way. Doesn't matter if it's USPS or UPS.

    Then there is probably a bunch of other ones sitting there to be worked on. Then inspect your and repair it. Ship it back. I'd feel elated if it took less than two weeks turn around time.

    No I haven't even heard back from them to get the exact address to send it to?? I finally heard from them and they said to send it to the place I purchased it from ??? So I'll get that out ASAP.... Which tells me I probably won't see her again for at the earliest 6 weeks???
