I bought the 7" Octane stab last August and it broke a couple weeks ago after maybe 200-300 shots. I no longer have the box or receipt from Cabelas, and Bowtech's "contact us for help" messaging system is a joke (4 messages have gone unnoticed.) I'd rather not get screwed out of 50 bucks for a stabilizer that can't even withstand 300 shots... Any advice aside from driving 60 miles round trip to the nearest Bowtech dealer?

It sounds like a minuscule problem, but money is tight and I don't feel like getting hosed on a seemingly inferior product that puts me out 50 bucks. Thanks!

Cabela's is pretty good with handling this kind of thing. Even without a receipt, they may be able to help you out. Contact them.

Call them. I'm sure they get emails out the ying yang. I have heard about this stab breaking a lot.

Can you post a pic?

I'm betting about $0.50 worth of JB Weld would fix it.
It's broken inside of the rubber end and I didn't want to go tearing into it just to find a potential fix that may wear out and need fixing again. If it comes down to it, I'll take your advice and dig into it, but for now I was just looking at replacement advice. Thanks!

Pack it up and send it back to Cabelas. If has not obviously been abused, they will replace it. They should have a record of your purchase.

When the mirror breaks on a truck, I go to my dealer and ask for help. I don't send the mirror back to the truck manufacturer. With all due respect, can you imagine how crazy that would get?
