    Dipped Destroyer Limbs?

    I see a few guys having their Destroyer limbs dipped, and am wondering how they are holding up?

    Is Bowtech's limb peeling problem a function of the material being dipped not accepting finish, or is it due to poor quality dipping?

    Thanks

    The layer on BT limbs that is peeling and chipping on certain bows appears to be like a decal. I will be curious to read if anyone has successfully dipped these
    limbs as well.

    My buddy has a new Insanity with the rough finish and he doesn't have a mark on his.

    Prep work and correctly dipping the parts will make a huge difference.

    I believe the way Bowtech doesn't finish the whole limb is the problem, they don't do the edges and then any contact along that undone edge it starts to chip.....then it just grows from there.
