A friend of mine just gave me an older phantom 2 riser (with limb pockets) and I was wondering if I could adapt the Jaguar limbs to it. Is this possible?

Just in case anyone tries to do the same thing I'm doing, it is possible to us the Jaguar limbs on a Phantom 2 riser. The limbs bolt up directly with no modifications and the bow shoots great. The quality of the Phantom riser is definetely better than the jaguar so it's a win win.

Thanks for the heads up. This is just a great idea!

The riser was a little beat up so I bead blasted it. Now I just need to get a rest, any suggestions?

Looks great :) Use a simple rest - Martin has a spring rest, which i've read is good. Or may be a Whisker Bisquit?

Oh alex..

Whisker biscuit on a recurve is a bad idea.

Take a look at the videos from my fellow countryman Werner Beiter who made highspeed studies of arrow movement.

Think about a spring rest to start with!

I thought about buying a Cougar1 and building a recurve out of it after i saw those photos. I just wodner if i could convert it to accep ILF-limbs.

I got a NAP center rest flipper which seems to work pretty well. Does anyone have experience with the AAE Cavalier Free Flyte rests?

Does the Cougar have removable limb pockets? I'm sure bolt on ILF limb pockets could be designed for it. Sounds like a fun project.

Until 2008 or 2009 all bows had the removable pocket. The Cougar is from 2002 or so. Might even consider one of my Razor-X risers for that project.

The first set of limbs delaminated on the first draw so I took them back to Martin and they gave me a new set. I shot about 150 arrows yesterday without any trouble at all. This morning I picked up the bow, put it in the car and about five min later my wife and I hear a crack! The limb delaminated in almost the same spot! What is up with these limbs?

What's up is that you are putting these limbs on a bow that Martin has never tested for compatibilty. I strongly suggest you visit your local dealer to purchase a Jaguar riser. Martin Archery does not sell direct.

Martin graciously replaced my limbs but warned that since they have not tested this riser they will not warranty another failure unless I use the Jaguar riser. There is a small difference in take-off angle between the Jag and the Phantom. If anyone else is considering adapting one of their risers I would recomend consulting Martin first.

As Joel said (he is Martin in some way.. ;) ) there is no guarantee that it will work.

But i suggest you to ask a bit around and let someone build you an adapter to get the same limb angle.

Or try some fiberglass limbs, may be they'll last longer.

I shoot a free-flyte rest on my 3-D bow. I shoot it w/o the side plate and a plunger button instead. I also shoot it with the magnet pulling the rest in so I have to 'set' the rest out before each shot. I get great tuning and flight shooting with fingers using it.

I wouldn't recommend it for hunting unless you reverse the magnet and even then it's a little delicate for the woods. I like a NAP Center-rest II for hunting.

Yes I think. We have the same problem. I follow your suggestions too. Thanks for the information. I will contact my dealer. :D
