Isn't that a step backwards by having solid limbs? It seems everyone else is touting their laminated limbs as superior to solid? I wonder if it was done a a performance or cost saving measure?

Most of the larger manufacturers are still using solid glass limbs, some use them on the entire line while others use laminated limbs on their flagship bows and solid on the rest of the lineup.

Where you will see a lot of laminated limbs is within the smaller companies that have sprung up over the last few years, it makes a bit of a selling point for them. The performance between a laminated limb and a solid limb is very minor to nonexsistant.

Let me see. I know only three companies using solid limbs...

Mathews on their solid limb bows.
Martin on all of their bows.
Merlin.

Oh, and maybe Bowtech on the bows without Harcore limbs. So i guess that is 3.5 manufacturers.

Wouldn't that be four as Bowtech also makes Diamond? :)

You can remove Merlin from the list. ;)
