    My release failed while I was pulling my bow back. Dropped my bow on the concrete. A piece came off the limb and I scratched the cam up pretty good. I have a bear agenda 7 and replacement parts aren't the most common. Is there anyone who has had something similar happen. and kept shooting? Pics below

    Don't risk injury. Get to a bear dealer and replace the limbs and cam

    I'd obviously start with a new release! :biggrin: Looking at those pics, I don't think your situation is dire. The scratches on the limb are only cosmetic. The cam needs to be watched, as you want to make sure you don't have any cam lean. It looks like the scuffed up edges aren't severe, but you want to make sure it's not fraying your string. Just keep an eye out for any changes.

    Yeah definitely need a new release. I saw a john dudley video where he said the same thing as earlyin. Just superficial. I'm gonna put some resin on it to seal it up and file the cam where its hitting the string and get in the woods. It's still accurate and flyin straight so I'm guessing there isn't any cam lean.

    If it were me I’d at least take it to a pro shop and have them give it the once over.

    Easier than having to visit the ER or opticians after.

    Your call though

    As much stress is put on the limbs, have it checked out. Not worth the possible risk!

    Probably a new release and a wrist sling would be a good idea for starters. The limb might be okay but I'm almost certain the cam will have to be replaced. Looks dinged up enough the cables are gonna catch on the burs from the drop. I would insist you take it a local shop / dealer and have them give it a good look.

    Best of luck and hope the damage isn't more than replacing the cam.
