    Default I bought a lemon and now need some help.

    My son just turned 15 and wanted to get into archery and for his birthday we got him a new bow, So I then wanted to get back into shooting. It has been 12 years since i had a bow, so I did some research looked around and found a nice Elite Z-28 ready to go. My bad, I bought it used because I could not afford a new elite bow. it was all set up sights and rest, I took bow in to local shop to get a d loop and found out both cams were bent and top limb is cracked. I can guess how it happened but don't want to think about it. Any way I spent $400 on a bow that is pretty much good for a paper weight. Does anybody have any cams, limbs that are good that they can sell cheap? Can anyone help me out or tell what should I do. There is a 3-d shoot my son and I want to go to in May and hope I can get it fixed by then. Thanks for any advice or help

    Not sure if the warranty will still apply on an apparent dryfire or not. I would talk with customer service first before doing anything else.

    I would be talking to the person I bought it from! Did you buy online?

    If you bought the bow on E bay or AT you can get your money back.
    Don't let it slide. $400.00 is $400.00!!!

    Yeah don't drop that as lesson learned. I'd be doing whatever you can to get the money back.

    sorry for the delete

    I have a set of 6 layer Barnsdale limbs, 135 deflection (60lb on a Z)(fall leaf camo) that will get you started back to having a Great bow.

    check the axles also. roll those on a piece of glass and listen for a thunk thunk sound. ( or not rolling smoothly)
