    The second set of replacement limbs are installed and shooting. Draw weight is now where it's supposed to be.

    I have only one small disappointment. For this set of limbs, one was made in 2010 and...

    For anyone interested in how Mr. Barnsdale builds his limbs and conducts his business, this is a good read.

    bfisher,

    Thanks to you and everyone else that have helped me with this whole limb thing.

    I think I have a pretty good handle on it now. I just hope I don't use my newfound info for awhile.

    All is clear now thanks to Mr. Barnsdale.

    The new limbs are engraved "B 175 10 130". I saw the 130 and assumed that was the deflection number. I must assume Martin thought the same. It's not...

    A further, short, update.

    Mr. Barnsdale says that the 130 limbs should be about 2.5 pounds heavier draw than the 135's, yet they are app. 12 pounds lighter.

    Obviously I got the cables on...

    Thanks, Kev.

    That's just the way mine look.

    FYI, I just got an email from Barnsdale that says the 130's should be 2.5 pounds heavier than the 135's. And yet, the 130's are coming in about 12...

    Thanks, Kev.

    Mine are Hybrix as well. Best I remember, 2.0, but I don't see that marking on them. All I see is "Hybrix".

    Always a possibility of the limbs being mis-marked, but they're both...

    Need help with 2010 Nemeis rigging

    A short update;
    Despite having a lower deflection number, the new limbs are weak. The old limbs were 135 and the new ones are 130.
    When bought in 2011 the bow maxed out at 64 pounds. The last time...

    No apology needed. It's all about limbs.

    For the record, the bow in question maxed at 64.2 when new and never shot less than 415 grain arrows.

    Uh oh -- I was thinking backwards. The new limbs are heavier, not lighter.

    I should be OK for a few years, at least.

    Exactly! it dawned on me after posting that the draw weight would go UP, not down.

    Still, I've got 15#'s to work with, so I'll be OK for a few years (I hope). Then I'll just pass it on to some...

    They're black and that suits me OK. Specially since that's all they have.

    As I said, the originals were Barnsdale's. Deflection #135.
    The replacements are Barnsdale's, but deflection #130....
