I have 5H 14" Mag. limbs on my Slayer, and they peak @ 65lbs. If I were to change to 13" SuperMag limbs, wiill the limb deflection # be the same for the same weight range? ie. Will a 5H 13" SuperMag limb give me the same peak weight as a 5H 14" Mag. limb?

Let me think about it...

I say no.


If you take two Scepter with the same Cam but one with a 14" Magnum Limb and one with a 17" Elite-Limb you will need a limb with a much higher limb deflection number to get the same draw weight.

Another Example.

If you take two C4 Cougars with the same (Dyna) Cam but one with the 14" Magnum Limb and one with the 16" SE Limb you will need a 6M Magnum Limb to get 70lbs or a 7L SE Limb to get 70lbs.

This means that you will need slightly lower numbers or letters to get the same draw weight range on your Slayer. I would say a 5M SuperMag Limb would fit but i am not sure.
