    I was going to buy a 2012 Onza but whats going on at the moment has stopped me from purchasing it. Vista camo 70# 29dl and its for a good price too but with the limb issues and everything else whats a man to do? I could buy it get barndales and have it for years idk if it still at the pro shop I know I may still buy it cuz I do love the bridged riser.

    i have 2 sets of Powertuff limb 50lb
    i have 1 set 135, and 155 barndales limb.

    Powertuff limb finishing is rough and i have one set, the paint peel off, and i try to pull the peel off, it straight goes into the limb, so its splitter.
    i sanded down the part that splitter, and notice, that particular area is not even from the cut. i actually sanded off the coating, and the limb surface is not smoothed out, its rough, and u will see alot of hair.

    Barndales' limb their finishing under the coating is smooth like mirror and you dont see any of the hair line.

    I found this out when i actually sanded the limb for refinishing the color.

    I guess, smooth finished limb surface will be stronger due to the neat line up of the surface and no chance for the limb to start crack or splitter??? just my 2 cent opinion.

    i love to try sanded out the Powertuff limb to smooth surface near future and try it out, compare whether it can last longer or not.

    My 55-70# 2012 Nemesis 2.0 has 3MP limbs. It actually maxes out at 74#. I wonder if these aren't the same deflection as Barnesdale 115's?

    No Scott, I have no idea what's going on. I'm having the same problem and been into the admin control panel to see if there was anything I could do, but I don't have permissions to check an/or change lot of things. I have notified the webmaster and can only wait and see what happens.
