    Default 2nd Attempt: Limb Cracks/Failures -Dont Delete

    NO BASHING, JUST INFORMATION GATHERING!

    I know many 09 models have had failures to the limbs and most have to do with the Cat 2 cams. Some stats of the cracked limbs that would be good to know:

    1. What percent fall in the 55-70lb category?
    2. What percent in the 45-60lb category?
    3. Do the stiffer limbs crack/fail more so than the lighter limbs?
    4. What cam is affixed to the cracked limb?
    5. Failure rate on the new 10' limbs?

    I have a Firecat TR1 (single cam) and am curious if there has been any problems reported with this model. Mine is shooting sweet and accurate and no problems so far (knock on wood).

    Another for the list:

    Standard cables/string or aftermarket and what material type.

    And maybe:

    What percent fall in the 50-65lb category?

    Default Response from Joan@Martin

    I did received this response from Joan at Martins thru AT.

    1. What percent fall in the 55-70lb category?
    2. What percent in the 45-60lb category?
    3. Do the stiffer limbs crack/fail more so than the lighter limbs?
    4. What cam is affixed to the cracked limb? Cat Cams
    5. Failure rate on the new 10' limbs?

    I have a Firecat TR1 (single cam) and am curious if there has been any problems reported with this model. Mine is shooting sweet and accurate and no problems so far (knock on wood).

    As for the other information I do not have good accurate numbers. I do believe the issue has been spread across all limb weights.

    I believe with the single cam you should be ok.

    hope joan answered your questions....

    with the new paralell limb angle and high speed cams ...there seems to be a learning curve with the laminated limbs. but martin is on top of it and has a new solid limb in place to take care of these issues.

    also martin does not use 10" limbs.

    thanks alot shoot straight vince

    Thanks for your post, Vince.

    5. Failure rate on the new 10' limbs? Please let me clarify, 10' was meant for year 2010, not 10".

    'A learning curve' means basically the more one does something the better one gets at it.

    Well, as i work with learning curves on individuals as mice, finks and bees i knew that. But my question was:

    What has the learning curve to do with limbs?
    Did they learn something about limbs and improve them? Or did the limbs have a learning curve (quite strange idea but i know that traditional bowmaker have those problems, called string follow)... Thanks anyway..
