Wow, Bro! I have never seen an arm give out so soon before! Bummer! No

OK. There is a way to recover from this. You'll want to pull off the strings, and remove the bridge. You should see the bottom half of the threaded portion of the arm sticking through the cam. I'd use a set of vice grips to lock onto the broken piece, and twist it out. I know that some of the Guys here have posted a link to a place that has after-market arms, or you could go through Kahler.

My only concern know is why your arm broke. You might have to back off on the spring tension, or possibly go with a slightly lighter gauge of strings. Let us know how it goes.

Yeah see if you can get it out with a pair of vice grips.

Is it hard to use? If it isn't like jacking a tire iron, then maybe you just got a crappy arm.
