    so today my Rambone came in the post not expecting it for a while being as I got a Email telling me they had to make more of the green ones, so well done on fast shipping. I put the double flat bands on and went to go shoot it, on the second shot it snapped a arm off as I was drawing it back it then swung round and hit me in the elbow kinda adding insult to injury haha.

    Anyway all I want is a new one as the one I got was obviously faulty how do I go about doing this?

    Contact the place you bought it directly. I assume you bought it through the Slingshot Channel Store? If so, there is a contact link right on the home page. That's who you need to talk with. You can't be certain they are always watching the forum for a post like this. They definitely need to be aware of this problem, just in case it's not a one-off fluke.

    Wow! That’s not good. My black one just got to me 2 days ago. I’ll have to take it out for a run this weekend and see how it behaves.

    Hi,
    contact the shop immediately!!
    They should warn the other customers by e-mail.
    You just hit the elbow, think what could have happened.
    This construction seems to have some "teething" problems.

    Hi,

    well, that looks very dangerous. I don't want get something like that in my eye or somewhere else in my face. Maybe the problem only occurs with the green ones (other material)? The black ones are much more tough - Jörg demonstrated that in one of his videos.

    Bye.

    It broke while you were drawing it back? That must have been a transportation damage. The material is the same as in the black types AFAIK, and that withstood 220 lb draw force.

    Contact the supplier, it will have to be exchanged of course.

    WOW I didn't think the man himself would respond haha

    I sent a E mail to this address [email protected]
    I am guessing that's the wrong address to E mail

    Thanks
