Default Mathews Broke

Well yesterday, decided to fling a few arrows at the target. I pulled back my bow about 3 inches and SNAP! Top riser split longways down the length of the arm in 3 places. On my birthday no less. Would have ruined it if it wasnt for OU's domination of texas lol. Anyway, do you guys know what channel i could go through to get a new riser? It is a Mathews Z-Max from i believe 1992. I have searched the internet fruitless, and sent an email to Mathews, awaiting reply still.

That sucks. Hopefully Mathews gets back to you tomorrow. You would think they would have fairly decent customer service.

OU did beat the dookie outta Texas!

Ouch, that sucks. don't sound like you have a second bow either. this is when the manufacturers get to show off their customer support.

My AXE 6 was experiencing some cam slippage. my bow shop gave PSE a call and they are sending a new set of 2011 cams. I cant say enough about PSE.

hope you get some results that you can live with.

Well this really is my first time dealing with Mathews. I the responded promptly, telling me i needed to contact a mathews dealer to get the new limbs. I was impressed that they still had limbs for a bow from the mid 1990's. NOT impressed with the cost. Lowest price for a replacement limb within driving distance was $95.00, Im sure after the middleman mark up, but still, im not shooting a high priced bow, I have found my same exact bow for sale on the internet for $100-$160. Not sure which avenue to take lol, i just want to hunt!!

I thought Mathews bows had a lifetime guarentee on the limbs. My limbs gave out several years ago and they replaced at no charge. You might want to double check that.

I am not the original owner of the bow, im actually the third owner. I have heard from everyone except the dealer that mathews covers limbs for life. Dealer said 5 years. But the guy didnt sound too bright lol. I got a mathews switchback from my boss for a loaner bow for awhile as he is using his crossbow this year. thanks for all the help guys

I would look into a new bow. your already going to be 95.00 into it plus driving expense and time. plus you will be the orig owner and a lot better bow.
