I Have A Martin Panther Compound Bow. I Went To Pull It Pack And It Pops Sounds Like Its Coming From The Cams And It's Loud It Has Never Done This Before. This Ouccurs When I Have My Bow At Half Draw When I Hear The Poping Noise. Then All Of A Sudden It Pulls Back Extremely Fast It Feels Like Im Only Pulling 1lb. The Limbs Are Maked Out And Can't Find No Obvious Signs Of Damage Or Cracking On Limbs, Or Cams. A Couple Of Guys Who Shoot Pro Looked At It At The Match And Couldn't Find The Cause Either. Anyone Else Have Any Ideas?

shoot yourself, or fork out 600$ and spend a week or so tuning in a new one. Gosh that stinks.

After pulling it back a couple of more times i have noticed the cable on the bottom cam is fraying and has a divit from were the serving is missing my wife says when i pull it back and get to that spot thats when she hears it. But would this make the weight i hold back lighter. I cant upload pictures they are to big for the server i guess unless someone knows another way.

I would get it to a proshop real fast and have them press it and check things over.
