Being interwoven like that you would weaken limbs if you abraded one single bundle. Pressed, cooked, and camo'd is the ticket.

Flow lines like that are common in the material used and do nothing except add character. :wink:
Thanks . Just didn't have those on my older model Excels.

My Exomax developed very similar lines on the limbs after a dry fire. They were not there when I first got it.

Firstly, as said these aren't fractures of any kind. Secondly, this is a stale thread from the summer.
