Those limbs have been there in 1998.

Looks like they are the predecessor of the elite limbs that have been discontinued in 2010.

I think the XRG's were used all thru the '90's. I have a set off a 1992 or '93 bow that are marked W7. They are wood laminate but not sure if it is Maple or what.
That bow would max at 65# but the limb deflection number used for a certain draw weight varies depending on the limb angle, ATA, and cam system.

Well... Hoyt had also Wood in their limbs. Barnsdale STILL offers wood limbs with his bows. Recurve bows use also wood limbs because they are better than 'foam' limbs.



But hey, those wood limbs were great. They did not even crack!
