So I get a new Toxic today. Fired a couple shots at the shop, come home and fire off a half dozen or so more. I put the next one in and fire and it sounds like a gun just went off. My string is broken, my cam is bent and my brand new never before fired carbon bolt is 10 yards away buried in the ground with a broken moon nock. I wanted to cry lol. I'm overly anal about making sure points and nocks are secure and that the bolt is properly loaded. So what do you think could have happened? My bow shop guy is great and said bring it in ASAP. As well as the bolts I was shooting. What a switch from the high of a new toy to the ringing in my ear all night long :-/ thanks for listening lol

my toxic just scattered. looks like your string broke at the cam not at the shaft. on mine the string groove broke out of the side of my cam/ cutting the string. well see what pse has to say. bad part is my kid needs this to hunt with in two weeks.

Glad u guys are ok. PSE warrantied the string but not the cam on mine. Bow shop said its fine to shoot. Just a lil bent. I haven't shot it since I picked it up last week. Dont trust it. Especially now hearing you story. Anxious to hear what happens on your end...

I traded in a stinger and a rally on this bow and now I feel like I should've just kept the compounds because I have a big old pile of crap on my hands

Nocks with the cut groove inside are very weak. Who ever designed these does not have understanding of physics. Plastic nocks need to be robustly designed such as on the Red Hot Arrows. Aluminum nocks are much stronger than the cut slit plastic nocks.

I just bought the new toxic package, it came with 4 carbon bolts, I got it on eBay and the listing said it came with practice tips, there were no tips in the box, I bought a few tips online but they don't fit the inserts. Any ideas about tips and weight ?

I have seen toxics with the "thimble", which is the little round thing the yoke ends attach to outside the limbs, with a very sharp burr from inadequate machining. That burr will cut the loop on the yoke cable.
I would never buy a toxic. Ever.
