No reason to be sorry besides the fact that you're wrong.

Yeah what LImbs issues on a Mathews? This is news to me......Ive seen the Federal recall on Bowtechs cause of their Limb issues, but Mathews? I sense some hatred.

I personally hate the honeycomb look. I think it is the ugliest thing I have ever seen on a bow.

Sure do have enough crap on the string.

I've seen the threads the past few years asked by joe blow on what people would like to see in a bow. irritates me that they act like old joe instead of just coming out and saying who they are but that's another issue.

I've not read any of those threads that had ideas in them creating a bow that would run 2 grand. For 2 grand it better be hand made and and original. Only a few of their kind.

I don't understand the point of hating on the physical appearance of a bow. It's made to shoot an arrow, not attract Megan Fox.

I am on a lot of archery forums and haven't heard of any limb issues on Mathews bows. The most recent rash of problems was limbs on the bowtech general a few years ago, and a lot of the flx guards are breaking on the new destroyer. There have also been a couple limb failure threads on the destroyer. But thats all I have seen over the past few years.

Every one has limbs that break, splinter, delaminate, etc... etc... etc...

Mathews had a whole bunch of limbs breaking at the limb "pivot" on the drenalin bows. They redesigned the "pivot" and redesigned the limbs on the DXT and subsequent "thin limb" bows. They did not do a recall on these limbs like Bowtech did on the General limbs.

Vehicles are made to get you from point A to B but I bet you don't drive a Ford fiesta.

Nor do I drive anything with a history of recalls.
