    Best I could do with pic! See the black line/split? I'm scared to shoot it! It's only 5 month old & not shot very much!

    Don't shoot it ! Take to your dealer they will inspect, think you need now ones.

    Really hard to tell from the pic but if you have any question, it's always better to get it checked out.

    Yeah I got it new from a dealer on here, so not sure about the warranty is valid?

    I sent bowtech pics of the same line on my limbs on my rpm 360 and they told me not to worry there just casting marks when the limbs are made haven't had a problem yet and that was a month ago at least 250 arrows since then

    Thanks for the pics, but that line/split wasn't there when I got it . It's not even running parallel ? Cast marks would be symmetrical ( even) at least in my experience with concrete.

    It's hard to see , but the line is not the same. It's not the same layer, I've had 3 cpxs & never seen lines like this.

    Sent some better pics to my dealer & he said he would see what he could do . Hopefully Bowtech will do us right . I'll try to post better pics for you guys as well.

    That photo actually looks like it has separation - but hard to tell from photo. Ideal thing would be to put "some" pressure on limb and see if mark changes any. Not much pressure - sure wouldn't wish to pull to full draw by any means. What weight draw are the limbs?

    If it were me, I'd press the bow, remove the strings and cables, remove the bow from the press and then examine the limb. If when you take pressure off of it, the "crack" changes shape or looks, then you have your answer.

    Joe, after thinking about it myself some, there is a LOTS of energy stored in 60# limbs with no draw on them. Just pulling back a few inches just increases that stored energy - "IF" it did get worse, it could go POW!!! almost from rest. Yep, you're smart - let someone else look at it, and see what manuf says.

    yeah, that's what I'm thinking ! Rather have it in this state then totally blown up with more damage still waiting to
    Here from the dealer , been over a week with no response ! My carbon overdrive is down with a nicked strand, haven't been able to shoot in 3 weeks ! This sucks!! Guess I'm gonna start shooting my sons CK just to stay in archery shape. This is my 5 BT in 4 years 1st problem ( besides flakes lol!) right about now I'd take the flakes!! Guess I won't be buying from online dealers anymore !! I spent $1200 on this set up : BT experience , pro v strings & tune & 1dz maxima reds . Smoking deal IMO ! Guess I won't be going this route next year! Just my luck first time buying this way & it bit me in the ass!!
