    Default Slayer limbs

    Just a question for you guys, could you use the rounded end limbs on a Slayer riser and B cams? I've got a deal brewing for a Slayer riser, but all I have are 4L limbs from 2010. Any idea on the draw weight if these limbs will work? Thanks!

    2010 Strother SR-71 65# & 2012 Strother Rush 65#
    2012 Strother SX Rush 60# & 2011 Strother Infinity 70#

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    if they are the original 14" rounded end limbs that use the mushroom limb pivots the answer is yes.

    Draw weight should be around 65 lbs max (give or take) and with regular mods you will get about 28.25" max draw length

    The only bad things about the rounded end limbs are they are markedly thinner side to side. They kind of flop around in the square tip limb pockets. Not a good matchup if you ask me, but someday that me be all we can do, but today is not the day...yet.
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.

    Thanks for the input guys. Wasn't really sure how well they would work. Had a good feeling they wouldn't look the best at the very least. lol

    I've got 4M square butt limbs on the Slayer that I hunt with, peaks at 63#s. The newer round butt limbs being of lesser width may produce a differnt draw weight.

    What if you used the plastic banding found on insulation bundles as shims, cut several pieces 2-3" long and line the limb cup with them, keeping them in place with two sided tape. The material is smooth black plastic approximatly 1/16 thick by 3/8" wide. Just a thought.

    The spacer trick should work. But since we all love nitrous cams (angels just said aaaaahhh!) The limb forks are too narrow account the wide base on the nitrous. So then you would have to sand them a little.
