    Guys my feeling is that the bow manufacturer must be the one who must tell me what deflecton the limbs are. 5L is not a deflection number. It is more of a limb classification. How will Dave know what deflection of the limbs are?

    As for sending the bow to Dave, that will cost me about $100 as I live in Africa. I can't believe that Martin can't giive me a deflection number, they have used Barnsdale limbs before on the Rytera bows.
    May the love and grace of God help us not to miss our purpose in life.

    I understand your frustration as you do live so far out there, but Martin hasn't used their limbs in quite a while, and the bows they are producing these days are nothing like the ones they used the limbs on before. Not only the geometry has changed, but the limb length and cam dynamics have changed as well...

    Wrong. 5L is our deflection number. You cannot expect the bow manufacturer to come up with numbers for an aftermarket product. Martin Archery does not have anything to do with Barnsdale production. How would Martin know how Dave determines his numbers?

    Ok, Joel. Will Martin be willing to please send me a set of limbs as I am having trouble with mine? I contacted the South African dealer and they have closed down, not doing any business anymore. Is there any way I can reach you by phone? The ladies who answer the phone can only put me through to the tech guys and I always get the answering machine. Any e-mail that I can use?

    If you call you will almost always get the answering machine because I am on the phone with 150 - 200 people per day. I can be reached via email at joel@martinarchery.com
