Ten Point Lemon
on October 2, 2016
I have had the crossbow 13 months, hunted with it last year with only a couple minor issues. The quiver mount on the crossbow split and one of the limb bowjax pieces kept falling out. Ten Point customer service replaced the quiver mount, although it took them over a month to do it. After an internet search, found out the bowjax was a common problem and a quick fix.
Fast forward to Oct.1st 2016, opening day of archery season. I was sitting in my blind with the stealth cocked and resting on shooting stixs and my lap. I heard a loud snap or crack and the crossbow jerked somewhat in my lap. I quickly picked up the crossbow and started to inspect it. It was instantly apparent that the bottom half of the left limb had snapped at the pivot point. All the pressure was now on the top half, bending it sharply towards the barrel of the crossbow. I carefully removed the bolt and realized there was no way to let the pressure off. It was a 15 min. walk back to the UTV and I carried the crossbow away from my body in case the top half snapped under the pressure. Once I arrived at the UTV , I placed the crossbow in the case and started to leave when I heard a second crack and loud POP. Yup the top half had broken at the cam axle and allowed the cam to smack the barrel portion of the crossbow.
Ten Point apparently does not trust their local dealers to do warranty work , so my local dealer is going to have to package it up, send it back to Ten Point, wait for them to fix it and then return it. Did I mention archery season has already started. A reviewer above mentioned his left limbs broke also...starting to see a pattern here. Maybe I got a lemon or maybe Ten Point has a problem that they don't want to admit too.
