After shooting today I noticed a huge splinter popping off my bottom limb.

Snip it off, and rock on. Still under warranty I'd assume? Get them replaced.

Just a little bump on the limb and they will splinter I guess.
Seen a bunch of Hoyt's do this .... Hoyt will replace them for sure though.

It's fine. Peeled off the splinter and applied clear nail polish. Good to go!

Yep for some reason you see it a lot with Hoyt's. they build a nice bow though. They should reace them no questions asked though. Still you expect more than to have problems from a product that expensive.

it won't cause problems , but I for sure would have them fix it . Especially if you ever plan on selling it . It will definitely decrease value later on. And might as well have it fixed since its their product .

It's your choice but no way in the world I would not have a new set of limbs on the way.. especially with Hoyts "lifetime" warranty which means as long as they still have parts for it...lol

Actually I've changed my mind. I'm up at this hour with severe allergies and can't sleep lol

Im going to get the limbs replaced but continue to shoot in the interim.

Not going to affect the way the bow shoots at all and not dangerous. I have an old Ultratech that did the same thing.
