It didn't just go snap.the bow was cocked with a dart in it. the limb started to delaminate it's self and I think that's what the pinging sound was as flakes of the limb stated to stand up from the weight of It being cocked I take it. As I was walking back to the truck it started to make a fair bit of noise and that's when the limb Finaly snapped off

Never seen a limb break clean like that.
That endloop on the string does look funny in that picture.

It's never been left in the heat or any vehicals. I did a all day hunt with it last Saturday. Hoping that should not be of any concern tho!
Does anyone know if this is what was happening with the older models?
