Compound bow snap
Anyone ever seen or heard of this happening?
A Bowtech compound bow riser, not limb, but the metal riser snapped when the archer was at full draw. This happened at our club open shoot yesterday, in fine dry warm weather. The archer had shot about half of the course and was drawing up on her next target when bang. You can see from the above photo how the metal has deformed.

Thankfully the archer wasn’t seriously injured, though she has extensive bruising to her face from the limb and cam hitting her. It could have been much worse. She could have easily lost an eye or been knocked unconscious.
I know everyone at the shoot would like to wish her a speedy recovery.
Thanks for reading.
