    Well barryd, I would say if you check out Archery talks classifieds that would be a start. Also you would have to Call Martin to see if they still make that style. I believe those were 14" limbs.

    Thanks for the input these bows were made with both 14" and 16" limbs. This one is 16 From what I see the 14" limbs was on the Phantom magum model

    Give Martin a call at 800-541-8902 and ask them if they still have any of the old 16".
    If not place a WTB ad on AT or call Barnsdale and see about getting a set there.

    Thanks Spiker for the info. Ill give it a try. This Martin bow is a very good shooter, limbs are getting a little weak.

    When was the last time you installed new string and cables? The limbs don't 'get' weak, but the cable does streach and give up preload, making it seem like the the bow is losing power. If you have'nt changed the cable in the last 4-5 years, this could be causing the decreasing power you're experencing. Way cheaper than a new set of limbs. If you still have the original strings and cables on the bow, I'd check them first.

    We haven't had 16" limbs for years! I would agree with the above statement...the limbs wont lose much if any weight over the years but the strings will surely stretch and cause the weight to change.

    If you're not reaching 70 #s with the new rigging, sounds like you need to add more pre load, twist up your cable and string until you reach 70lbs.
