I started noticing my bow was getting louder and saw that the cams were under rotated. I retuned the bow to factory specs but lost a lot of poundage. I don't even see my limbs listed for this bow on the website and not even sure what I have now.

Here is what I have, the spec sticker is worn off.
2005? SLAYR SE riser
14" SE limbs with a 3L written on each limb by the cup
Nitrous X C cams with HL mini mods
String is roughly 58.5"
Cables are roughly 38.5"
Bow was Crackerized by previous owner.

Anyone know what my max poundage should be with these limbs?
What should the exact ATA and BH with these modded cams?

Sure, you should get some where along the lines of 47 to 50 lbs with the cams properly orrientated; however...depending on what possition the mods are possitioned in (from the low end to the high end) you will gain or lose about 2 lbs plus or minus.

I could be wrong in how I have always inturrpreted what under or over rotated means but if you addressed the under rotation dilema you should have picked up poundage not lost it.

One more thing; if your bow was crackerized this some times may mean that the limbs were given more deflection (compressed more) which would mean what I have told you is moot, albeit you would have a higher poundage, how much I have no idea.

l will bottom low, so they are probably 47-48. M would bottom at peak, while h would be 2-3 lbs higher. My 4H limbs give me a peak of 60, with a bottom of 63.

What's "crackerized"?

Sounds about right, I ended up at 53# with a 37.5" ATA. It was peaking at 65# when I first got it but was short strung. Any harm in taking it back up to 60 lbs?

Crackerized means that Mike Carter of Carters Archery tuned it.

Good is relative.

He does nothing i cannot do with my own hands..
