The limbs are gloss black. Debating whether to wetsand with 1500 then clear. I think I will do that. The bow is a 1997 martin Speed demon with the Nuges engraved autograph in it. Originally these bows were issued with a solo cam of some type but i bought it used in 2001 with z cams. I am not sure if it was custom ordered from martin or if someone created a frankenbow, but it shoots nice. I am actually more accurate with this one than my new Silencer lol.

I don't think it's a franken bow. I've had a chance at 3 of them,all with Z cams.

A chance at 3? Did you bite? I know this is an old bow but it is still a very nice shooter. Its not heavy. It's a machined riser not cast. All synthetic cables. And the Z cams are pretty smooth and fast. The only thing I wish is that the cams had bearings instead of bushings but not a big deal.

Update guys.....Sorry to pull the plug on this but, after repeated attempts at painting my limbs and having issues, I got disgusted and sent everything including cams out to Hanover Hydrographics in Minnesota to get everything dipped. So much for the glittery riser but it will be even cooler now! I will keep you guys posted.
