    Seen on that other site that the Chills are having to be re limbed and re pocketed.

    Anyone have any info on this? true or no?

    False and there isn’t any posts on this other forum that I can find.

    There was some bogus reference to some unknown thread mentioning tuning issues with the Creed and I couldn’t find that either when doing a search.

    They changed the inserts where the limb sits to hold them in tighter

    So if I have already gotten a creed from my dealer I should take it back and have them fix this issue. What exactly was wrong with the limbs and pockets from the factory. Is this something that they will fix for free.

    Hope this doesnt wind up like the Monster Cam fiasco.
    Of course, I had no issue. Dealer was more than happy to help. However, I heard a lot of complaints on here and the other site. [=}=]

    The. Red plastic looking pieces under each limb should now wrap up beside them to hold them more firmly in the pocket

    You guys crack me up. :^O

    Hoyt shipped my bow with the wrong cams.

    Took three months to get the cams I ordered.

    Then Hoyt didn’t change the limb deflections for the cams. DW went from 62# to 83#.

    Took 14 more months for Hoyt to ship the correct limbs.

    Now, its been over 3 weeks with the wrong string length, still waiting for Hoyt to honor its warranty.

    … and, Mathews steps up and corrects a problem with limb pockets, when most of you didn’t have a clue otherwise … Go Figure. [=}=]

    So this should be visual without having to take anything apart? I just want to grab a bow off the rack see if it has been done. post a pic if you can get one please.

    I would also like to see a picture of the “fix” as well. It is nice to see that they already have a solution to a problem that was making the bow extremely sensitive to tuning and maintaining the tune.

    GJArcher – got to agree with your statement, I am curious how much it affected down range accuracy and not paper tuning. Yes “super tune” would have been affected obviously but we are not Olympic, top 10 world class archers either so really how much would it impact the average archer that accepts a inch here and there shooting at 30 yards for deer is still up in the air IMHO.

    Yeah, I guess the Aussies DownUnder just don’t understand how critical this stuff is …
