    Do you mean specifically quattros or just delaminations?

    All manufacturers limbs can and will have failures. I have a bow that is made with two surviving orphans from failed pairs of limbs, different manufacturers but the same problem.

    [emoji90] happens unfortunately.

    Quite common in all modern limbs, regardless of manufacturer. The higher the bh and the lighter the arrow you are using the more stress the limbs suffer. (The limbs stop with more poundage remaining at higher bh, and heavier arrows are better at taking more energy out of the bow as they leave. Cumulatively equivalent to a dry fire)
    This is cumulative. So maybe after 5 years it's going to be more likely than in a one year old set.

    I had a set go on me last year big time, both top and bottom, same time at full draw. A very good archer in our association had 5 pairs give way 2 years ago in one year, the last of them in the shop that was selling them as he tested! He now shoots Hoyt X-Tours and loves them.

    A friend a few years ago had major problems with the Quattros, 2 sets delaminated in a short space of time. They delaminated about 8 to 10" from where they went into the riser.
