All the way to the pain i'm guessing

It was held on by a small piece of meat. Was 1.5 hours from the nearest hospital. It was laying over on the side. I had to pull it up high enough to put it back in place and wrap it. Wasnt one of my better days.

I just wished they had called me back and listened to me... 2 phone calls and 2 letters went unanswered. Probably afraid of being sued.

It was a learning experience for me. Believe me it will only happen once. I hope everyone learns from what happened to me so they dont go through that.

My son laughs at me when I shoot the bow. I audibly ask myself "where is my thumb" and then answer myself " my thumb is down".

The bow itself functions well but does have a loud release. I just may invest in string dampers myself. It is very accurate.

OP if you decide to buy this, be very very careful.

You mentioned telling them about your story and designing a thumb guard? I would have expected huge financial compensations for an injury that bad. The shape of the jackal almost encourages this dangerous grip for anyone that does not have a child's hands.
