Dry fire Question
I have a Mcpherson edge that the other day was dry fired. It is equipped with Vibralock limb dampeners which i have been told are effective in reducing excessive vibration (such as a dry fire) just as well as the Sims Limb Savers. The only damage seems to be a lost peep, and it seems to shoot as well as prior to the dry fire. My question is are these limb dampeners effective in protecting the limbs and bow during the dry fire and is there anything else i should be looking out for?

It's always good to have your local pro-shop do a complete check anytime it has been dry-fired.

Dont know to much about that bow but how about where the limb bolts go thru and into the riser, saw a few pse's crack there after dry firing. Aslo is there any draw stop pegs on the cam, saw a fred bear epic ruin a cam on a dry fire. Also check your specs, ata, brace etc.I cut things up and split them down!

Everything is probably ok Borat13 most bows are made well enough that dryfiring will not damage anything. But if it were mine I would definately take it to the shop and have it inspected. If nothing else so you can have peace of mind. It would make me nervous pulling a bow back after a dryfire. Anyway sorry to hear of your misfortune and hope everything comes out ok.
