Need Opinion

I just saw that i have some cracked fibers on my bottom limb. About 1/8 in width, 1/6th in depth. I've been shooting every other day for 3 months and i saw this morning after i got done shooting, don;t know when it happened.


Anyway, i need opinions about this. I've clipped and epoxyied fibers like this before and it was not big deal, but this is not just one or two fibers, it has some dimensions to it. There is no other delamination going on around this. So do i clip and glue or should i be going to the bow shop?

Two weeks till season and everything is tuned and shooting good. I got my old bow if needed but i would have to put some time in on it.

Thanks, i just need to hear from others on this.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

Bow shop

Are you really old enough to remember when there were huntable numbers of deer on public land?

Re: Need Opinion

Doesn't look good in the photo, I think if it was me I would replace limbs. I would not want a cracked limb going into a new season.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Need Opinion

Thanks so far for the input guys. Here is one last pic to just confirm your opinions.


I know they'll have to order a new limb and who knows how long that will take, could take all season.

Safety first. If some does happen to the bow....It will happen at the must inopportune time.

Re: Need Opinion

Thanks all, I'm headed up to Bakers first thing tomorrow morning to have them look at it. No matter their opinion I'm still having them order new limbs, they are under warranty.

I looked at it more last night, its not really a 1/16th, its the top layer of fibers and then the coating so a shy of 1/32. Its the same thing that happened with my old hoyt.

I put together the old bow last night and started shooting it this morning so that i have one for the opener. I got time to get tuned again. I thought it still had sights and a rest on it but i had stripped it down. So i'm starting new again. Uuuuuugh. This [censored].

Re: Need Opinion

Google image bows that have exploded and the damage they do. That should be all the motivation you need to get it in the shop.
