View Full Version : Cougar III se limb swap

02-28-2010, 12:18 PM
I currently have a cougar III with se limbs (6L) 55-70lb.
My wife decided she wants to learn to shoot. This cougar is a spare bow I would like to setup for her. My question is what limbs to I need to get a lower draw weight? Is there a chart to figure this out? Does anyone have a set they would like to sell or trade?

Let's start here. 6L gives you 70#, right? Each number lower you go will drop 5#. Assume you want to have a 50# peak--you'd need 2L limbs. For 40# you'd want 1L. The letter "L" stands for LOW. Then there is a "M" and "H" (medium and high, respectively). Each letter changes the weight about 2#.

Does this help any?

Thanks that does help. What does the low ,med, and high really mean.

It basicly means that betwean those letters ie. L to M, M to H, H to L etc,etc, you have a difference of about 2 lbs. of DW.

YES, and I made a mistake above. For 40# you'd need 0L limbs. Just as important is the draw length consideration. Will you be able to shorten the draw length enough for her with the present cam system?

The bow has a dyna cam with mods whats the range for draw length it says Mp on the limb sticker.

If i go with a 1L limb that would get me a 50# max correct?

No, if everything holds true you'd need 2L to get 50#. You could also use
1H to get about 48# or 2M to get about 52#. The 1L would come to about 45#.

These I mentioned just in the event you are looking for used limbs and find something close to the 2L. In any case any of these limbs would work as you can always "fudge" the cable and/or string lengths a bit to get the weight. 2# either way shouldn't be an issue for the wife anyway. As I always say, poundage is just a number.
