Bow problems

After a suggestion, thought I'd pass along some recent bow problems. I posted a problem with a new Bear Lights Out model and returned it to Cabela's after string jumped the idler wheel on first shot. The next purchase was a Bass Pro Toxik made by Diamond Bows and returned today due to a splintered lower limb. This is the second Toxik bow limb problem as reported by the shop. Now have bought son a new Reflex Ridgeline. Really tired of bow shopping. I'm sure these are most likely isolated problems but for the money spent, I'm pretty picky. Hope son appreciates Dad's efforts/money???????

I hope your son is aware of what you went through for his Bow.
What you went thru means more than all the dollars you've spent and I hope he understands that too...
Reflex Ridgeline? yummy! You're all set now, problems solved!

Son will be home friday, we'll see if he can be pleased. He called me tonight to say he shot a doe with his buddy's bow, 17 yds. Ohio is pretty liberal where he is hunting, and only off campus a short drive.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
