I'm posting this here because I believe it's friendlier and more understanding or shall we say mature than other sites. I bought an HTR on 3/9 - ABSOLUTELY love it. My buddy loved it so much he sold his Prime and got one 3 days later. On 3/20 we're doing our daughters bday party and my buddy texted he blew up his bow. The guy buying his Prime was shooting in his back lawn and my buddy shot with him, got to talking and forgot to nock an arrow and dry fired. He's out new mods and a string cable set and back in business. Six days later on 3/26 we're shooting and my Meta peep apparently was cutting my string and the bow blew with me holding my release, arrow still nocked and I wound up with a field tip in my thigh, a nasty welp on the arm and the peep bounced off the riser and hit me in the eye. I ordered a new custom string from Energywave (he's local to me) and it was ready the next day. On Monday my local shop is closed and I drove from Mid TN to Mid KY to buy the mods and was back in business Monday evening. 3/29 I get out to shoot for the first time and apparently my old TruFire is messed up and I take two to the nose/mouth. I go to the store and wind up with a Scott Little Bitty Goose. 3/30 my buddy comes over to shoot and we decide to check our draw weights on our newly purchased OMP M100s. He picks mine up while I'm looking for something and weighed it twice and on the 3rd time the circle up top broke as well as the hook that was on the dloop effectively dry firing the bow! This time the scale came down and hit my buddy in the face, warped my limbs, mods trashed and cams bent. I call the local shop and he said we bought his first two scales he stocked and went to reorder and they would not sell to him because they were recalled. Bow goes to the shop Thursday morning and they sent it to Mathews and I'll be receiving a new bow on OMP's dime. Local shop REALLY went to bat for me and I hate the scale failed but at least OMP stood up and took responsibility. Hopefully have my new bow shortly. Turkey season starts Saturday. Say all that that no one wanted to read to say - when I got the bow back the first time I was terrified even after shop said limbs were fine. I went from 70 to 61lbs and I could barely pull it back. Felt like pulling a truck. My friend thought it was easy and smooth and it was in my head. Now I'm shooting my old Diamond (maybe 6 arrows total) and I'm terrified the release will fail or the bow will blow. Every time the dual cam flip over thru the valley I flinch like it was gonna blow. Everytime I draw I hold the bow way out like I'm about to break my teeth. How long to get thru this?
