    Default Replacement limbs, since Martin is going out of business?

    Was thinking, should I try and get a set of limbs for my Bengal? I absolutely love this bow and was thinking that they might need to sell off some spare parts. How much do you think they run? Thinking about stocking up on parts since our warranties will likely be null and void now.

    Interesting. Do these Barnsdale limbs fit Martin Onza 3 or Rytera Alien Nemesis?

    No limb issues so far, but of course it would be good to know that replacements are available if needed.

    On the top of martin limbs inside by the limb bolt you will have a # like 5m or 3H. Call barnsdale and he will walk you though it but all you need is the #. Barnsdale made Martin limbs back when and has the specs.

    As Tosi said, Martin was ordering limbs made by Dave Barnesdale in 2009 and 2010 while they were developing the present PowerTuff limbs. They were used on mostly the Rytera line. As for length, width, and such they can be ordered to fit any of the bows from 2010 and later. They do have a different deflection numbering system than the Martin limbs. You may have to ship your bow to Dave to ensure he gets it right, but frankly, you can't get better limbs than the Barnesdale ones. All three of my Ryteras have them.

    FYI for any one needing/wanting Barnsdales...I have a new set I will part with for $125 tyd. I think they have a deflection code of 115, they are Carbon in color with MARTIN logos on them.
