Default Just when you think you've run all out of luck........

There is still a little tiny piece just waiting to dislodge itself in hoping it will push you over the edge.

Heard a strange pop while shooting this evening..........

Guess it's time for a new rig. Just **** poor timing if you ask me. My birthday is Sunday and my wife swears I did it on purpose!

It's a Hoyt Maxxis 31 by the way.

Yes Hoyt's are known to splinter but they also have some of the toughest limbs on the market. Clip that thing and sand it then get back to shooting and never blink an eye at it..... or use it as leverage for a new bow.

Dead serious on the clip/sand, look it up.

Pffft

Nothing a little duct tape won't fix






Really blows that it let go on you at this point but at least it didn't blow up in your face while you were full draw on a bruiser buck

My AlphaMax put up a little splinter many years ago. I took it to our local Hoyt dealer and they took care of it no questions asked. Had new limbs and ready to go in about 4 days.
