My bow is a PSE "Beast" it's 8 yrs old possibly 9. I was checking the limbs and I found what may be a crack. The limbs are solid and where the crotch of the limb is for the cam to fit, its reinforced. The reinforcing plate (for lack of words) appears to have a crack on one side but the limb itself appears fine. The crack appears across the top and down oneside of the plate but not the other side. I wonder how much shooting I have left with her before I learn how PSE got the point-shoot-explode nickname? I wont have the money to my a new bow till january when I get my bonus from work. I tried taking a pic. Hope this is ok. It's the left side of the U. When you click & enlarge the pic it looks like a hairline. Posted Image

I've always heard to use a cotton ball to find the small cracks. The method is simple just whip the limbs and or riser with a loose cotton ball and see if the threads of cotton gets snagged or hungup on a crack. You can use a finger nail to rub over it to see if is there too. If you have a crack do not use the bow till you replace that part. That's how folks get injured by archery equipment.
