I shot one while in the process of buying a new bow and wouldn't say anything bad about it. I too was a little afraid of the limb issues but if you take into consideration the fact that they probably sold 20000 bows and most likely had limb issues with 50 of them I think you will be fine.
The Internet has a way of exaggerating the bad and great. Perfectly acceptable and repeatable rarely gets a mention.
If you shoot it and like it then I wouldn't let a small percentage of limb issues get in your way but you are aware of them and that can factor into your decision if you choose
I've been shooting a carbon overdrive since it came out. Packing it all day is nice and it always gets attention at a chronograph. It slings 490gr FMJs at 292 fps at max poundage and only drops them to 276 fps cranked down to 60 lbs. I'm not sure how they stayed under the radar but it's an awesome bow.
No issues nearly 4 years on a knight. Holds tune extremely well. Grip is something, but get used to it. For me it's too light in the wind compared to heavy tankers but any bow is a challenge in the wind. Back bar helped a lot to add weight and balance out quiver for me. Great shooter.
I bought one new here about six months ago with the premium package. I think I paid about a thousand bucks, but it was money well spent in my opinion. Hoyt was my go to brand for years, but after shooting the carbon icon I had to make the switch.
i know this thread is kind of old but i just bought a carbon icon at a show the other day and i couldnt believe how smooth and the arm fatigue wasnt there i felt like i could hold it full draw all day long, i cant wait to pick it up in a few weeks and start practicing with it.
