    Difficult to make a good laminated limb. Yes it was discussed a while back but you won't find the post unless you google cache. Like this post soon too, most likely, understandable.

    Its a big part. Barnsdale's don't have the same issues. Global financial crisis hasn't helped the situation either.

    Are you hinting that this thread may be deteted? I don't know why, this isn't about Martin. I just chose to post it here instead of AT because people are less excitable, less brand loyal and easier to have a conversation with.

    Yep. Just wait a few weeks.

    No good someone searching for cracked limbs and finding all Martin links.

    Not always good when you think about them (google) having a copy of everything. Oop's, must put on my foil hat.

    X2 That wouldn't make Martin look good. After all, Martin doesn't have any more limb problems currently then any of the other companies.

    Greg, notice that the title of this thread has been edited as per your request.

    Sonny, I remember the discussion we had a few weeks ago and that we do have differing opinions about what causes limb failures. Do you by any chance remember the title of the thread. It wasn't but a few days ago. I'd like to find it again. I did not delete it.

    For all who are interested I don't have plans of deleting this one either. I find it quite interesting that so many can post ideas. Who knows, maybe there is a solution to be found in these discussions. If somebody posts what may end up as a solution then Martin may see it and come out a winner. Ultimately we, the consumers, will be in the winner's circle, too. The more the merrier.

    its nice to have an Administrator who knows the value of info and for the most part the values of the people on this forum.anyware else this would have turned into a blood bath.

    I think the thread in question that you guys think was deleted is the one by Rockyhud entitled "My Homemade TRG.........." from just a few days ago. Am I right?

    bfisher, I found it. And it's been a few months ago. About the same stuff there as here. So we can examine past with the present and see what has been added or found.
