    I've had one bow over the past 3 years come in not as ordered(wrong color limbs). I just let the customer take it as is and shoot it untill the correct limbs came in, then we swapped them out, Martin was fine with this as it was their mistake. I would suggest having your shop call and explain what happened and have them just order the correct limbs rather than send the bow back, at least this way you'll have your bow to shoot untill the correct limbs come in.

    Well, it seems QC is still lacking at Martin. Having ordered bows in the past I would rather wait for what I ordered than take something I didn't. So, I wouldn't accept the bow. If money down or already paid for, tell 'em you want what you ordered.

    complete lack of respect for onions. THAT is what's wrong.

    It's good to see that after all this time, you're actually coming around GD and realizing onions aren't bad. I have to congratulate you on this.

    After all this wait, pick up the bow Saturday, have your dealer order the correct limbs and in the meantime, shoot the h--l out of it.

    You should get what you order but I gotta say that I had an all Skullz Nemesis and now have an Alien Z with Skullz riser and carbon limbs and I like the Skullz/Carbon a lot better.
    I really wanted the Black riser with Skullz limbs but it wasnt available.

    I agree with everyone saying, take it, shoot it until you get the correct limbs in. If nothing else, you can get a good feel for the bow while waiting on the new limbs. The more often people settle for something that isn't right, the more often it's bound to happen.
