View Full Version : How do you determine what limb deflection

I'm looking for new limbs for my scepter 3, and it shows 4H Elite limbs on it.
According to the chart with my A cams it should not have a 4H.
What is the difference between a 4H and a 3M?
I shoot 27" DL, 51 lbs.
What is better for what? I only shoot indoor Fita and spot at this time.

There is 5 # difference between the numbers 4 is 5 pounds higher in pull then 3 ...next the letters are L= low M=med H= high there is a few pounds difference there ....Say you have ..3H and put on 4H limbs just 5 pounds higher ...But if you put 4 L on then it may only be 2-3 lbs higher 4 m 3-4 pounds higher etc..They do that to match up the limbs better...Some bow makers limbs will be way off ...Martin has good quality control on their limbs I have found .I hope I explained that ok...

hunter did a good job explaining it! :D

4H, and, 5L will net about the same DW...within a few pounds of one another, I shoot the 5L limbs on my Scepter IV Elites w/Nitrous X cams, the bows max out at close to 53# pounds! ;)
