    Until I see it first hand, I believe it was a torque issue. Not a broken FLX guard issue. I think the FLX guard broke because of the derail. If you over-torque any of the top speed bows on letdown, the string will derail. it will happen on the Monster, Omen etc.

    I love the lynch mob mentality over there. If this had been a dry fire nobody would have said anything about a broken cam, broken limb, broken string or broken FLX guard. To me, a dry fire or a derailing has the same consequences. Something is going to break or get damaged.

    Chris, You are exactly right. I know all the years I've spent in a shop I have seen this exact thing happen many times with several brands of bows. The Brand really has nothing to do with it.

    Everyone be sure and check out the Videos today. I'll post a link once they are up.

    Would like to see the videos.


    The ones I have heard or read about happened upon the release of the arrow. Not during let down.

    I think the key phrase up there is highlighted in Red. I've seen many such accidents including a Monster. Most of the time the guy with the bow in his hands is Not sure what happened, but usually thinks this or thinks that. So unless you were intently watching the bystander might be guessing as well. I have been in both situations.

    I will post a link to the vids as soon as I know they are up.

    As stated Many times by Matt and others the FLX guard breaking is a result of the Bow derailing not the opposite.

    on the flex guard what im finding is when i checked the new bows i have on 1/2 of them the bolt that holds it was loose . its supose to be tight . i think what happens is if its shot loose its like a sawing action from the threads on the bolt and eventually will cut and pull through and break .twisting could roll the string off but i doubt if it would break the guard if the string came out .just a guess not going to test it .

    The Flx Guard is Not designed to be tight. It is adjusted from the factory.

    Do Not Tighten down completely
