Those are looking good. Might could use a set myself when you get them dialed in.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

Well i got this set of #3 limbs on an "A" riser in the shooting machine the other day and tested them side by side with some sock Bear limbs....... The Big Foot Bear limbs were right at 50@28" and i got 190 FPS at 10 GPP & 195 FPS at 9 GPP. The stock Bear limbs i tested were just under 48# @ 28" and were hitting 180-182 at 10 gpp. So these static tip limbs got a little more horse power....

The thing i really noticed was shooting both sets by hand...... My Static tip limbs come back a lot smoother than the stock bear limbs. The 50# static tips felt lighter in draw weight than the stock bear limbs that were a couple pounds lighter. I was drawing both of them to 30" though, and the stock limbs felt like they were staking a bit. They might do better on a "B" riser. The string angle was better with the static tips too. especially at 30"..... the photos below are drawn to 28".

i gotta say one thing about the stock Bear limbs. They ain't nothing to sneeze about. Good shooting rig with very little vibration. I see the why these things are popular now.....

here's a few pics for you....

Looks great Kirk. Once you get those dialed in and the word gets out, AND all those Bear T/D fans out there get the info, your going to stay busy!

Kirk, seeing those numbers has my mouth watering with anticipation for my limbs. I am thinking with the mag riser and your design I may want to go up a notch in spine. What are your thoughts?
