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!!
