Default Check and inspect. New bow goes boom

Iím pretty good about inspecting my gear. But wouldnít luck have it. My one week old V3 fell victim to a bad nock. Iíll get into the shop this weekend. Everything looks fine except the string of course. Nothings bent and the cables held everything together. Hopefully this donít cost me too much.
The broken piece of nock drew a little blood on my lip. Bad, bad day of shooting.

Mathews makes tough bows. That thing should be fine with some new strings!
