    Default Cerakote limbs - is baking a concern

    I'm looking at getting a set of limbs cerakoted in black. Is the baking process 200-300 degrees a concern for solid glass limbs? I have painted limbs before with moderate results, I just want something a bit more durable.

    I wouldn't recommend it. It might work but it could suck in a big way if it didn't. I can say that I have had our limbs powder coated just as we would the riser and it was surprisingly flexible, didn't wear with use and didn't cause a limb failure.

    Appreciate the input. After much consideration, I think I'm going to just stay with painting them. Much easier to re-do if they get screwed up and cheaper on the wallet as well.

    Why not look into Duracoat? They have a DIY application system.

    Painted the limbs, had to re-coat one because I screwed it up. Used duplicolor trim black and the paint is hard as a rock, good results that will be easy to touch up in the future.

    I did get some Martin limb decals from Pathfinder arrow wraps, excellent match to the originals and Justin can make multiple color combos. The bow in question has the decals done in Predator 3-D to match the riser.
