Default should bowtech pay?

I have an 2005 allegiance and had a limb split.My dealer says that it's gonna cost me to have them replaced.My question is this:why should i have to pay my dealer to replace faulty equipment thatbowtech sold??I feel thatbowtech should have to pay not me[:@].After allwhen my car got recalled the dealer fixed it for free.Seems to me that this is the same thing or am i wrong?

If you are the original owner the limb will be covered under warranty.

If you brought the bow second hand then you have no warranty thus you pay.

I am sorry.I am the original owner and he did tell me that the limbs are covered and i would not have to pay for them,but he did say i would have to pay his labor.I still think Bowtech should be liable for all costs involved.

No bow companies that I know of reimburse the dealer for labor. It sucks, but that's just the way it works. Some dealers won't charge for labor if you purchased the bow from them though. I had a set of limbs replaced and the bowshop charged me $15.00.

I would just box the bow up and send it to Bowtech. The shipping cost would probably be the same or less than the labor costs. Bowtech will fix it, tune it (I mean as in cam timing, etc.) and send it back to you, with the return shipping on them and quick turn around to boot.

if you bought the bow from them, i think it stinks. i understand they aren't obligated to do it for you, but you're also not obligated to ever buy anything there again. if you purchase limbs on you own, and take them down there - sure, charge you, but not on a warranty issue.


did you buy the bow there? its a good chance the shop improperly pressed it. its also a good chance they just cracked and there wasn't anything you could do about it.

The shops in my area will not charge a customer labor for replacing limbs under warranty IF the bow was bought at that shop. For a non-warranty item yes.

I paid $15.00 to have my Mathews limbs swapped out at a different shop than I originally purchased from.

I also has my Bowtechs limbs swapped out for free also at a different shop thanI originally purchased from.This shop alsoswapped out my Mathews idler wheel free of chargeas a waranty item.

I think itsays a lot about a shop to stand begind the product and merchandise they sell.
