WOW That sucks!
Makes me wonder if I should start wearing safety glasses whenever I shoot.

I'm really interested in how Hoyt handles this! I currently shoot the ultratec and am considering another new one with the cam 1/2 , but I've heard Hoyt seems to be getting a little too big for their britches in the customer service department. If that turns out to be true , there are plenty of other quality bow mfg's with top notch customer service I'll be looking into.
Please bring me good news , I really like that cam 1/2!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Frank, glad to hear you were not hurt! That`s not exactly the report I was hoping to get on the RazorTec!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
That can happen to any bow, as we all know. I will be playing with one tommorrow, can`t wait!

I have seen this happen with many different brand bows on several occasions.
One of the first things I do to a new bow is install a teflon cable slide. I won't shoot a stock cable slide, PERIOD.
Good luck with your problem. Let us know how Hoyt handles the situation.

Maybe they shipped you a 29&quot; and you just pulled it apart trying to get to that 40&quot; draw length of yours!!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Again gentleman, thank you for the thoughtful comments. I do appreciate them.

Just to give you folks an update. I have emailed them and hope to hear something soon.

BT,

Yes, I do agree with you but as the old saying goes...&quot;beggars can't be choosers&quot;. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> I know that it would set a a good example if they did just send me a new model but I really don't expect it. I do remember hearing a very good experience that another gentleman had with them back in the beginning of the summer. They either set him up with a new riser or an entirely new bow. I can't remember which it was though.

For the record....it was actually the 2nd shot at home and the 6th overall shot as both the pro shop owner and myself each shot it twice at the shop to get a feel for it.

Roland,

I was offered the same advice from a good friend and I followed it. I will let you know how things turn out.

PDQ,

Yes, I do feel lucky...especially after seeing those carbon shards sticking out of the cable dampener. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Len,

You know exactly how I feel. Though I have seen it happen once or twice before I have never been the one holding the bow when it occurred.

AC,

I was very pleased with the draw cycle of the normal Cam and a half. It was very smooth to draw especially with the transition into the valley. The best part, in my opinion, was the way the back wall felt just like a typical single cam's back wall. It is difficult to describe.

Bowfanatic,

I will let you know as soon as I see how things are going to play out. Hopefully I will have good news for you shortly.

Siskyou,

The cable slide that was on the bow is a new design for Hoyt. I wasn't too fond of the previous design but this new one looked as if it has potential. If you haven't seen one of the new Hoyt bows yet in person then you really need to. It looks as if they paid an extreme attention to detail on the new models. Just about every little thing on the bow looks to be top notch. That is one reason I was really surprised for this to happen.

Razorhunter,

I do usually use either a Bomar or Sims slide for my bows (couldn't do that with the Epic Extreme...<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>). I will probably try a different style if and/or when this situation is resolved.

NJ,

Thank you. I appreciate it.

Vic,

Considering the setups that you usually put together I would be surprised to hear that this hasn't happened to you yet...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>


Dacotach,

The arrow was laying between the chrony and the target...<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>...so I do feel rather lucky.

Frank,

Time for a shoot-thru.
Just kidding, glad you were not injured!
Could happen to anyone.
