Re: why did they crack?

Because it's a Barnett, same thing happened with mine. I was glad to throw it out and get a new one, I'll never buy another.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

Re: why did they crack?

These things just happen. It could have been a manufacturing defect, or the limb was damaged in some form over the years. It could have been the result of a dry fire. Lots of reasons it could have happened. Contact Barnett they may be able to help you. They may not as I believe they have been bought a few times but you never know. Split limbs happen. It is rare but it happens on crossbows and compounds a like.

Bow shop told me Barnetts were the worst for this.sounds like a common problem on many brands.Fella told me the Parker his father has had the limbs crack while just sitting on stand this year.x-bow only was two years old.

Parker will replace for free. I dropped mine cocked ,no bolt and shop sent it back and they replaced both limbs even tho only one cracked.

Re: why did they crack?

This can happen to any brand. My dads Ten Point had a limb delaminate the last day of rifle this season. It is going to be replaced under warranty but it is still frustrating

Re: why did they crack?

just like any other bow, you can have a 300$ one last for 20 yrs and have a 1000$ one explode after two days of use.

Ouch! That would be making me pretty frustrated.
