The warranty change actually reflects confidence in our products and product changes. To be quite frank, if someone were to have a true defect warranty issue the chances are it would happen within the first year.

Snowman,snowman said:I have a Quad 400 that is about 2 years old. The crossbow seems to shoot very consistent, but the problem I am having seems to be in the bolts. I marked each bolt to check them and each bolt shoots consistent, but they do not all shoot the same. For example, bolt 1 will consistently hit the bullseye, bolt 2 will consistently hit to the right, bolt 3 to the left, etc. I was told by an archery dealer that you could not tune carbon crossbow bolts. Has anyone else experienced this problem with the bolts not all shooting the same? If so, what did you do? Also, what is the proper weight for the bolts for a Quad 400? Thanks for any help.
The current stock 22" carbon arrows should weigh 445 grains with a 125 grain tip. Weigh all three arrows that you have and compare their individual weights. They should be less than 2 grains apart.
Carbon arrows are not tunable (straighten) the way that aluminum arrows are. Basically once a carbon arrow is cured during manufacturing its shape is set and fully rigid.
There are two things that can be done to tune your arrow flight with carbon arrows. They are changing arrow spine and the flecthings.
I would recommend that you look closely at the fletchings to see if they are consistent (not damaged), centered and fully glued to the shaft. If they are out of alignment or irregular it can cause an arrow to veer off course. If they flecthings are damaged or irregular only thing that can be done is replacing all three fletchings. The size or length of the fletchings also effect how the arrow flies and these can be experimented with if you need to change them.
Arrow spine is also important to good arrow flight. Try heavier tips (or inserts) to see if it improves the consistency or accuracy of the arrows. Carbon arrows are quite stiff with crossbows and many people get better flight with heavier tips. This increases the F.O.C. (Front of Center) of the arrow. There is a lot of information out on the internet on this topic. Run a search on "FOC arrow" and you will find a lot of information.
Hope this helps,
