    Default Bow limb delaminated

    Just got back from shooting and I'm ready to cry. I was shooting at the range and I started hearing a tick when I would draw the bow. I drew it a few more times and the tick got louder. I checked over the bow and when I was checking the limbs I got scured by a nice size sliver. I'm so upset I don't know what to do. I bought the bow used, and after a long running thread about what my bow was it was determined that it had 2010 limbs and cams on it. I called a local martin dealer but he said he could not help me since I did not buy the bow new from him. So I'm stuck not knowing what to do. I do have martins phone# but I can't call long distance on my phone so I have to get a phone card. I don't know how much it costs for new limbs but it will be a long time before I can afford to get some. Am I over reacting to all of this? Someone give me some good news please!

    Give Martin a call and tel them that your limbs are cracking. I'm sure they'll take care of you. They'll send the limbs to your nearest dealer, and you can take it from there.

    Rotten news mate, I had a similar situation with 2010 limb. Not sure if Martin will cover you at no charge, but all you can do is try. Good news is, if you buy a new set, they'll be covered by warranty for life. Good luck and I feel for ya.

    Here's the good news....I had my limbs do the same to me lastweek monday, and got a call today from my dealer saying my limb's were in. Now the bad new is a new set of limbs cost about $120, that's what i got quoted, which i think isn't to much. But i din't have to pay for mine cause i bought the bow new. So hopefully your not down to long. And trust me, when i split my limb's i felt like crying also, go read my thread.

    The toll free is 1-800-541-8902. Even if you have to use a phone card it might be worth it. Joel just might take care of you to your satisfaction. If you don't ask you'll never know.

    Thanks guys, I feel alittle better. It's not the end of the world I know but I sure don't see a sun shiny day coming to soon. I'll talk with martin tomorrow but not sure what to say about the limbs if they have already been changed to 2010. Any ideas?

    What is the code written on the limb? The new solid core limbs will have a P or an M after the number. The first of the 2010 limbs were not the new solid core ones. Also, if you look at the end of the limbs, the end that's bolted to the riser, the laminations are visible. If the ends look smooth, then they likely are the new solid core limbs.

    The numbers on the limbs are 4h 6/10 on the top limb and 4hc 6/10 on the bottom.

    So they were made in june of last year. I have the new solid core limbs that were made in June 2010, but they have the letter P. I think yours are the laminated variety, but check with Joel tomorrow. If he's in a good mood, never know it might be your lucky day. Whatever happens, I'd be wanting the new Power Tough limbs on my bow for sure.
    Good luck mate, I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.
