I have two pairs of limbs, one black, one AP camo with the old logo and both pairs have some light lines in them. I also have pr. of new black limbs on my Answer that are very smooth and also a set of old logo Max1 limbs that are smooth. When i first received my Answer the limbs on it were way worse than either of the older pair so I sent them in and Kerrianne told me the exact same thing Dick told you. She couldn't guarantee the replacement limbs would be perfect. Luckily, the replacements were much better. The fact that two prs. Of older limbs have light lines tells me this is something that's just part of the process and not something that recently became an issue and that some limbs are just a little better than others as far as finish goes. I have to wonder that if there wasn't all the hoopla in the beginning about finish and lines in the limbs that you would have even paid attention to the lines that are in there now? Not bashing just a question. The older set of limbs on my Z28 have lines and I wouldn't even think to send them back. It's just not that bad of an issue to me and frankly, if the Answer didn't have the problems at the beginning, I would have never even noticed the limbs on the Z.
