"TD Bare" hybrid long bow limbs

Postby Kirkll » Fri Dec 09, 2016 8:02 pm

I have the first set of prototype “TD Bare” hybrid long bow limbs limbs here finished and ready to be shipped out to anyone interested. These are action-boo under S glass, 50@28" on a "B" riser #3 limbs...... The test results showed 191 FPS with a 508 grain arrow at 28" draw on the hooter shooter (10.16 gpp).... Same arrow at 30" draw was shooting 201 FPS. (9.15 GPP)

Here's the deal.... These are what i call "blems" . The S glass isn't as clear as the "E" glass typically is, so when you get the limbs in the right light at the right angle you will see streaks in the glass. Therefore i'm going to discount the price on these limbs 20% and sell them for $400..... They will still have a 2 year warranty.

I will start taking orders for these limbs now. These are going to be popular me thinks. Great shooting limbs. ;D Regular price $500 in black, brown, or green glass. Carbon backing or special order limb veneers will be $600.

here are some photos....

Hey Randy,

What's the average difference in draw weight using the same set of limbs on an A riser & a B riser? At present i'm using a B mag for my limb prototyping, but don't have an A to check the weight on. I'm hoping to come up with an old A mag to have here in the shop eventually, but i haven't come by one yet that has a good price tag.

On all of the #1 & #3 limbs that I have seen it runs two pounds. The limbs are two pounds heavier on an A riser than on a B. All of my limb butts are marked similar to this...

A 60" 57
B 64" 55

I think you will need to scale them AB and maybe even C if you are going to sell them Bear guys will want to know ,time to buy a cheap A and C mag riser probably can be found for $150 and $100.
there are 2 dates on your marker.Your life is the dash in between.

All my older limbs are marked 5# heavier on A than C risers. Using Randy's example of #3 limbs, it would read:

A 60" 57#
B 64" 55#
C 70" 52#

Thanks guys...

I'm not much interested in a C riser, but i would be interested in picking up an A mag on the cheap. don't care much what it looks like as long as it's not all rusted up, and the hardware is in good shape. Just something to use in the shop.
