I am reluctant to ask . After emerging from this years ice age I have had to time to dial in my alphamax 35 . ON the top limb inner edge at the alpha shock (vibration dampened ) and on bottom limb outer edge same area . IT is a single stand that does not appear at least to me serious. I have not contacted Hoyt as this bow was bought threw AT's classifieds last year . I truly believe the seller never new or was aware of this or this condition or the splinters are just starting . Could this problem be attributed to the extremes of winter usage ? Can it be stopped ? Do I need to be prepared to get new limbs and start all over again ? Lastly can there be catistrofic failure ?
