ive got an alpine pro 3d silverado laying around that im thinking about making some limbs for. the riser is roughly 19 3/4" long and the pads are 22-23 degrees. anybody have any reason this wouldnt be a decent candidate? too much limb angle? i was thinking maybe a 62" over all length if i could pull it off.

it looks like this one.

course id take off the silly overdraw guard thing and probably reshape the grip.

I believe that will be fine,,,,Ive done some of those before(warf) what I did was buy a set of polaris limbs from lancaster just to see,,,, some of the risers I would make a wedge to change angle but you are going to like that bow I do find they all shoot great off an elevated rest good luck hey how about a mini build along? JeffW btw the limbs cost about $40 bucks and the samik sage limbs are like $60ish but work better

Thanks! Ill probably try to get a set of sage limbs and if they dont look right I can always shim them with wedges for a different pad angle. Maybe once I decide on the right geometry I can whip some of my own limbs up.
