    we recieved a package that was waiting at the shop when we returned from the mathews show.it has update kits for the creed and chill. i will be installing them tonite and will take pics and post them. i must say i was disappointed that this issue was not even mentioned as we were ordering 90 new bows for stock. on the flipside ,it’s great that the issue is already being resolved.

    But if you ordered bows, they should come with the kit already installed, right? But you would think that they would mention something like that anyway…[/quote:30zct2ta] yes,all new bows will come thru with the new system,this was only for the demo bows.

    these are the pics of the creed limb swap i did tonite.note that the first pic is the original set, second pic shows old and new side by side,red inserts are the new. third pic is a close up of what to look for. according to paperwork that came with limb,pocket and bolt kit, this will be on all new bows from here on out.kudos to mathews for being on this quickly.

    Thanks Bill… :thumbup

    I wonder if they will be sending the bows with the shims from the factory now or they will expect the dealer to do every workaround. Also if the tactical shims are black instead of red too.. cause that would look terrible with red.

    I would guess they are all red, Its really pretty small so i don’t think you would even see it form any distance

    pretty sure from what the paperwork said, all will be sent with the new setup installed and ready to go.i should add that i was able to get a perfect hole at 13/16″,compared to 11/16″ previous to swap.i like that.

    funny you mention that cause I was thinking the same thing. I still find it odd they selected to use red instead of black as that would blend with camo or the tactical instead of sticking out like a sore thumb. Obviously red is easier to identify that the shim is in place. [=}=] [=}=]

    And just to clarify it is not a knock on Mathews either GJ.. It was just a observation and my opinion so I am not sure why the ](*,)

    My Proshops demo has the red. He received his on the release date. I wonder if someone just forgot to install the shims on some bows. Mistakes happen I’m just glad it is getting fixed quickly

    When you put it as a question it makes sense, and I have no idea why red over black or brown or green, but as a stand alone statement it sounded like a complaint.

    Different folks like different colors and color combos. Lots of Tactical bows are customized with the red accessories. The ](*,) was because the solution to a personal preference on color or camo matching is so simple. [=}=]

    Agreed it is a simple fix and understood that others like different colors which is the cool part about all the options we get to select from. But when the limb pockets are black for both the camo and tactical models why add red into the mix?

    That is why I started with the below and then went on to add also at the start of the next sentence figuring it would read as more of a question than a complaint given my opinion is they would look terrible on the tactical. Still does not flow with the current color choice of the limb pockets though.

    I wonder if they will be sending the bows with

    Also if the tactical shims are black

    just got done with the black chill limb swap.they used blue shims on these to accent the rest of the blue on the chill.if this is the trend,i can only assume the tactical will have black or grey shims.jmo.
