I just checked my bow and noticed the limb ID # and it's says 5H, but when I checked the charts, it's supposed to have a 6H for the NOS- C cams. My bow's limbs are cranked all the way down and it reads 66#. Shouldn't I get 70# with the 6H?? :confused: Thanks in advance for the help!

On Martin's home website you can find this info in the tech info area. The bow is a model #96. 5H limbs give you 65# with the C Nitrous cams so it looks like you're limbs are up to snuff.

I feel pretty disappointed and kind of "cheated" 'cause I ordered the bow to be 70# and I got it with 65# limbs. :(

I went to the 06' chart and it's clear that my bow should carry the 6H limbs

You have identical specs too me. I ordered 5H limbs for a peak of 65lbs too. I have the 5H limbs, anf they peak at 65lbs right on.

I see that there's a 8H limb for 80# in the chart. I wonder why MARTIN didn't offered the SLAYER with them limbs? They would've certainty shoot more than 335 IBO at 70#.

Not really. At 80# you'd have to shoot a 400 gr arrow of following IBO specs. The heavier arrow would produce more kinetic energy, but not more speed.

The same can be said shooting a 250 gr arrow at 50#. Theoretically it will produce speed equal to 70# and 350 gr. It just won't produce as much energy.

The way the cams are orientated can cause a difference of 3-4 lbs. on avg. in the draw weight of a bow. Are they slightly under rotated or slightly over rotated?

I really don't know scepterman!! :o All I know is that I took my bow to a shop I found near home and had it checked for timing and all "nick nacks" and it's shooting better than ever. The thing is that I ordered my Slayer as a 70# and I found it has the 65# limbs in it which it should have the 6H (70#) limbs. The bow is scaling 66#. But I decided at last that "if it ain't broke,.. why fix it"?? :( I brought it up 'cause this must've had happened to someone else too and that if one's order a product with specific specs,.. we should get what we ordered and nothing different.
