first of all when you went to the local bow tech dealer he should of been able to deal with the problem instead of you sending the bow back. sounds like the wrong set of limbs and they should of been able to take the limbs off the riser and checked the number on the bottom of the limb to id if that was the problem or not.

yeah i know. just thought best to let hunters friend straighten it out since i got it from them. im like you though ithink they put wrong limbs on though. paper work on bow when i recieved it fist time stated it was on 55 lbs. dont see how it could have been an dont see the cable stretching that much. local dealer did try it a another set of scales an was going to check limbs but i wanted hunters friend to straighten it out since they put it together. i would think wrong limbs like you.

First off, if you've got a local Bowtech dealer, huntersfriend should not have sold you the bow. Huntersfriend disregarded a fellow dealer's protected territory. I think there's a 30-mile radius around each dealer on that Bowtech in the Boonies plan where huntersfriend is not authorized to sell.

If you told the dealer where and how you got the bow, then maybe he was ticked at you and huntersfriend and didn't feel too darn obligated to spend much of his time and effort jacking with you. I'm betting he could've handled the problem right there... if you'd have bought the bow from him in the first place.

first of all ARTHUR i know that. second ARTHUR the nearest archery dealer to me is 34 miles . third ARTHUR the nearest bowtech dealer is 115 miles. you see ARTHUR i do live in the major bonnies. fourth ARTHUR i already new that , im not stupid. so you see ARTHUR it was about as easy to send it back to be fixed as it would be for me to drive , though i did just to have it looked at, but i wanted to let t hunter to fix it. better think twice before you jump ARTHUR.

drthunder,
First of all Arthur had very valid points based upon the information as you presented it, and was offering his opinion........secondly, if you don't want EVERYONE's opinion then you should have just asked Huntersfriend and handled the matter privately instead of presenting your problem here. That attitude isn't going to bring the knowledgable guys here running to your rescue trust me.

On my own note, I am confused as to what you are saying?
You got used to shooting at 50# but wanted to go up in weight.......if the bow was maxed out then the limbs were already bottomed and you should have known even before you went to the dealer that you weren't going to get anymore weight.
The tag from Huntersfriend stated 55# with bottomed limbs?

Also, you drove to your "Local" BowTech dealer 115miles away to have him tell you the bow's draw weight is maxed?

I guess I'm not following.

I cant figure out how hunters friend is getting away wit selling Bowtechs on line to begin with. I thought Bow tech was a pro shop bow ?
