IMPORTANT - No warranty on these bows when purchased through Amazon!

I have mixed feelings about this bow. Overall I recognize the positive things other reviewers have already mentioned like the fact it fits a wide range of draw lengths, is easy to adjust the equally wide range of draw weights, etc. If I left it at that, this would be a five star review. As an overall package, for the price it's not too bad, although you will likely find yourself replacing / upgrading parts in not too long if you shoot a lot. Both of the string silencers that came with my bow broke off after about a month, the packaged Tundra site is horrific at best, and I didn't find the 5" Octane stabilizer any more effective than shooting with no stabilizer at all. Like I said, for the price point, I can't really complain, but now my "I love it" just becomes "it's okay."
Then comes my "I hate it"... The other day I had a cam pin shear off the top cam as I let off an arrow at a draw weight of 65 lbs. This was both an interesting and terrifying experience to say the least, which left me with a sheared upper cam, a bent lower cam, a broken nock on my arrow, and a destroyed string. Needless to say, I wasn't too stoked. So I contacted Bowtech, who makes Diamond Archery, and asked them if something like this would be covered under the warranty. Much to my chagrin, I was informed that any of their products that are purchased through a second party distributor like Amazon or eBay is not warrantied for a list of very poignant reasons, all of which I could totally agree with.
Now, the reason I still give this product four stars is because the guys at Bowtech really made a tremendous effort to get my bow fixed after I contacted them. The guy I worked with was extremely helpful, and covered my repairs despite the company policy saying my bow was not warrantied. He personally spoke to the local authorized dealer I brought the bow into for repairs, and got my bow back up and running in just a few days. So for that, I'll leave this with an "I like it". Customer service is becoming a lost art, so I am very appreciative of how Bowtech remedied the situation.
