Matrix Limbs...Is this bad?

I must admit I didn't notice if they came like this or if something is going on here, but today during a shooting session I happened to notice these marks on my limbs

Re: Matrix Limbs...Is this bad?

If you didn't know any better, you could say it was just where the final finish coat didn't seal the limb surface right. Those longitudinal marks clustered like that however look like frets and those are bad. Get that bow to a pro and have it checked out.

Re: Matrix Limbs...Is this bad?

It won't hurt anything as far as performance or durability but is just a surface blemish. It is common in the Matrix line. It is more noticable with the black color than the camo. If they bother you, you can contact Excal to see if they will replace.

This is common on the Matrix line. Excal is aware of the problem. This appears to not affect the reliability of the limbs so far.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

That's a good thing to know. Looks like the finish on the old barnet limbs. They epoxy top coat just never flowed consistently and bubbles formed. When it cured it left little fret-looking craters like that.

Call Danny Miller 740-483-2312. He's the US Excal rep. Great guy with a world of knowledge. He'll make it right if you have a problem

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

That is normal. You see it better with a black finish.
