Got this brand new helim and all of a sudden they are a bad squeek when u draw it and if you let it down had my bow shop look at it and they called mathews and they said it was the Limb Turret cracked its kinda crazy to pay that much for a bow and not even 6 months old and done ordering replacement parts.
anybody else ever bought a bow and have to order replacement parts that soon?

That Helim has been a problem child for Mathews this yr. Seems like they went with cheaper components on it and are running into problems here and there. I went in one bow shop that the bow tech was loving it...best bow they ever made. A month later and he'd already replaced several things on it and last time I was there, was talking about going back to a Z7 Xtreme.

I don't know how much a helium cost, but I'm sure it's not cheap. That's rediculous if they are actually using cheap parts.

I sure hate to hear that man. Im a Mathews lover, but you need to call and voice your feelings to Mathews. They usually have pretty good customer service.

I don't think the problem is that they went cheap, I believe they are just trying to go too light. It's always a problem when trying to get walls thinner, pieces smaller, and everything lighter. Lightweight items have historically had reliability issues.

To reduce weight Mathews changed components on the Helium. Some people perceive the Helium as having cheap components but these components are meant to reduce weight.

I personally am not a fan of the Helium but many people love them.
