View Full Version : XLX broke
01-24-2009, 09:06 PM
I just got my bow back from the ATA show and it was in the bag, box it came in and coverd with bubblewrap and placed in a crate. It made it to Indy with no issues and the trip back was a different story! I open the crate and everythiong looked good until i moved tyhe bubble wrap and saw my Elite box was damaged. I opened the box and saw tboth cams where bent, several chips on the paint, bent rest, the cable rod was broke off, the string stopper was bent, limb pockets banged up, string bad, It looked like thye took it out of the crate and drove a tank over it.... I was trying to get it ready for the ASA and now it looks like I will not be going:censored2:
I will file a claim Monday with the trucking service and send the bow back to Elite and see what it will cost to try and fix it. The riser might be bent by the way it looks...
The only thing that looks ok is the carbon grips:)
Pray for me; I am having a bad moment:hunter:

Man how in the World can this kind of damage be done while shipping something. I see this kind of stuff all over the place. It would take some major beating to tear a bow up that bad.. good luck with the replacement..:profanity:

Dude that really stinks. Did they take it out of the crate or was the crate damaged also. If it was taken out of the crate first of all WHY? second WHO?. Sounds like a total replacement. Sorry for your bad luck.

Doesn't sound like something that could have happened by accident from what you describe....
