Thread: In-Velvet problems!
08-25-2008, 10:20 PM #1
Anyone else problems with the In-velvet finish on their bowtech, or diamonds?
I bought a 101st early this year. After 1 day I noticed a small piece of the finish had wore off. I called Bowtech and they said sorry...we don't warranty the finish. I didn't get too up tight about it since it was so small. While shooting the R100 in Saginaw I noticed it was peeling big time! About 80% of the finish is wore off of the grip area. It looks like hell and the primer coat is pretty slick and I feel like the bow is slipping when I grip it. Just wondering if anyone else had a problem with it?

Other than appearance that sounds like an asset. If it's slick you should be able to find that perfect zero torque hand placement with ease. I have no problem with my Invelvet but you've given me an idea.

Hey Ben, yeah I couldn't believe how much that thing was flaking when we were up in Saginaw.
I remember seeing something over on the dark side, ie AT , about them having problems with it early on. Maybe do a quick search, if you can get on
I can make you a deal on mine when I get it back Then I can buy another Elite!!!

I may see what they can do for me tonight. Maybe the dealer can get me a new riser.

I have an 82nd and no problems but only about 250 arrows though it to date.
I'd nag Bowtech about it. If the in-velvet is BS then they need to fix it. All I do know is that the in-velvet attracts airborne stuff like cotton wood seeds and stuff like a magnet.
The in-velvet stuff is NOT impressive in my opinion. They should drop it and save us $50 at retail prices.
I'm not growing more impressed with Bowtech. In fact I'm heading in the other direction.
Good luck with that but I would hound their butts and get it fixed on their nickle.

NOT MANY..... IF ANY
and you say, "OH the broken limbs on BOWRECKS havent killed anyone...."
what happens when a guy is drawn on a deer in his stand and the thing lets go, and whacks him in the head, hard enough to make him somewhat dizzy, OR out cold and falls out of his stand, and is hanging from his safety harness??? and that time limit where you loose consiouness (cant remember what its called) passes.....and your hunting partner or family finds you swinging dead from you safety harness???
You know what........I dont think Bowtech will ever get it right, they have been in business for what 9 years.......and I doubt that 1 of those has passsed without issue......it has gotten so bad, that they finally issued a recall safety notice.......
Please, you Blowies/Blowers are a joke......and they say that Mathews guys drink Koolaid??? HAHAHAHAHAHA, your KOOLAID comes with blinders......I cut things up and split them down!
