Looking at the full draw pic on my fone, that top belly overlay does look close to the fade. Mark may be on to something with the overlays needing to be back a bit?
Stay sharp, Kenny.

They finish about 1.5 “ below end of fade but may be within the zone of influence definitely consider that with new one.

My industrial background would say that your overlays would be far more prone to set up stress on that area due to abrupt change of plane, so if it remained intact then it might be there is another reason for mine’s demise.Still am bemused about the abrupt transverse shear on the glass. I did do a lot of sanding in weight reduction so perhaps the integrity of the glass may be the culprit.

I usauly terminate mine where I figure the limb is thick enough not to interfere with the fade flexing nothing scientific just a guess !

If you fear failure, you will never try ! But never except it!!

I Will definitely take particular care in this area for this next one. I will have to say this design is without doubt the best bow I have shot. Forward handle risers have the potential to creat a lot of stress, so attention to detail is paramount. I just see it as a challenge to get right.
