    That's too bad, but I think it will still look great.

    It would be hard for me to accept it. Yes, it might look ok but it's not what was ordered and paid for. I'd be on the phone to Joel and demand the QC dept be held accountable. This is a relatively small forum and this is the second bow that made it out the door with the wrong limbs on it.

    well that suck's! But the good news is, have your dealer call martin and explain the problem. Then martin can just send the new limb's to your dealer (which he should get in, in about a week from the time he makes the call?) and when he get's the limb's, he can put it on then give you a call to pick up your bow at no extra charge. I had the wrong limb's come in on a bow as well and my dealer got right on the phone and had my new limb's in, in less than a week and also put them on for me, free of charge.

    last year was supposed be Hunter black, too, but it ended up with the carbon weave finish. It seems they had problems with the vendor doing the powder coating last year so got them dipped instead--carbon fiber being the result.

    I really wanted a black bow and before ordering this year I had talked to people at both Rytera and Martin about it and they both said they didn't know which it would be. Obviously it is still the carbon weave. I knew when I ordered the bow it could be either so it's not an issue with me.

    My Nemisis is the other bow being referred to about having the wrong limbs. I ordered a black riser and Bonz limbs. I got the carbon weave riser and NEXT camo limbs. Not a real big deal, but still not what was ordered, and considering that at least two people inspect the bows for details prior to shipment I'd say somebody must be blind. I did have a pretty lengthly discussion with Joel about this, not for my sake, but future orders.
