A dab of super-glue, a couple wraps of duct tape. Back in action. Bring a cement block up the tree as insurance.
Sucks man.

Seriously. If it's just an edge splinter, SG it down. Obviously, contact whoever and get the ball rolling on replacing them, but I wouldn't let just a splinter keep me from hunting. I've done it with 2 recurves and 1 compound and didn't have it pop back up.

Dropped it off at the dealer. The issue is I bought it lightly used. Oh and the silly stickers that PSE used are gone. People can say what they want but Mathews has it right punching the serial number into the riser.

I am hoping this isn't too costly. It would be a shame if I had too look at a different brand. This is why I always had back up bows before.

That is the worst, two day before season.

I had a little splinter on a Hoyt right before season but I just broke the splinter off and sanded it down. I think that was 5 years ago but it was a real small splinter on a blacked out bow which were known for this.

Hopefully your dealer will treat you right.

Dealer is doing a good job.

PSE doesn't have any 60lb limbs left. So they are sending me 50lbers at my request.

The PSE rep is doing a OUTSTANDING job!

The PSE Rep did such a great job, that I decided to get another PSE.

My Sinister should be here on Monday I would think. Should def be in the woods no later than the middle of the month!

Gonna turn the BMXL into an indoor bow.
