Default Need a new limb bolt

Hi all,
managed to screw up my hoyt katera limb bolt today when I rushed a power adjustment.
Where can I buy a quality replacement?
I take it the screws are the same standard on all compounds, or do I need Hoyt specific one.
I looked on ebay for compound limb bolt but found nothing.
Any advice is much appreciated.

Take the one you messed up to Fastenal. They'll have what you need.

I agree and/or if you have a machine shop nearby you could try there. I hope that you find one and that solves your problem, I'm also hoping that its the bolt and not that you have unscrewed the bolt under tension on limbs, this can cause the internal threads in the riser to pull and strip and when you replace the bolt it chews the threads out and then its a HUGE problem. Best of luck and hope that you get back up and going soon.

If it's just the bolt and not the limb pocket screw hole then I would contact Hoyt. I bet they would send you a new on free of charge. I would really be suprised if they didn't even if you caused the damage to the bolt.

Default In a niche market

go to the maker of the niche product -the bow manufacturer.
they see the bows every working day and week.

If they don't know, who would. Or a local dealer could help and give some advice.

Like they say, most of us archers only shoot bows.
