How many people have actually personally had an issue w/ a limb on a given bow? Not heard about, read about, ect... but personally had an issue.

Are you only looking for the most recent, or what... I've had limbs fail on several different brands...

Javi.. I meant to make the poll so that you could pick various brands... but I think I neglected to check that box and don't know how to fix it.

I have had 2 limb failures on my constitution. One was a long splinter that came off of the limb, the other was simply a crack in the limb.

Only ever had one limb failure of anykind on a 1998 Mathews Ultra Max..........and that was completely my fault. Left the bow in a black bow case in my truck bed (also black) on a very hot day for a 3 hr ride. Both limbs completely delaminated on the inside faces.

That's it for me.

I guess I have been extremely lucky through the years because I have Never had any problems with limbs, risers or strings! Of course I shoot a wimpy weight of 55 pounds and heavy arrows.

I didn't vote because of multiple brand instances.

A Ben Person Recurve delaminated/broke and a Browning split limb bow delaminated.

Both of these happened in storage, thankfully why I was not shooting them.

I like how it shows the user name of the people voting. You cant really get away with lieing any more.

You need to have the option to have more than one pick.

Went through several sets of PSE limbs back in '01.

Jennings Split T and a Dynabo limb back in the early 80s (those were purely my fault).

Top limb cracked straight down the middle. Luckily I actually heard it cracking and let down and found the crack before it broke.

I've been shooting since 1986 and have had 23 different bows from 9 different companies and never had a major component bow failure of any kind. I did have a steel cable begin to unravel on a Browning but that was after over 4000 shots through the bow and had a string break on an Oneida.
