What I meant by that comment was, if there is a difference in the limb pocket angle from the M-56 Scepter and the M-57 Scepter II and the Scepter II limb pockets will fit both risers, is there also a difference in the angle on the Scepter III that is listed in the specs for the cable and string length as well as limb numbers? If there is a difference and this is where the increase in poundage comes from for the same Cams, will the Scepter III limb pockets work with the previous model Scepters? If so that gives more choices for setting up the M-56 Scepter and the Scepter II with Nitrous Cams or other Cams, with a greater range of Limb numbers. Example
M-56 Scepter Nitrous B cams, Elite 10M limbs 66#
M-57 Scepter II Nitrous B cams, Elite 10M limbs 72#
According to Chart:
M-57 Scepter III Nitrous B cams, Elite 10H limbs 80# (10M should be at least 78#)
If this is true and parts are all interchangeable, limb pockets are cheaper than new limbs and there is a 12# change with the same limb. (with the 10M any ways)

Now I am really confused, I talked with Martin, was told there should not be any difference in the limb pocket angle except maybe cosmetic.
I was going to tell you that but I wanted you to get it strait from the horses mouth...I don't call myself Scepterman for nothing.
But there could be very small differences between the bows during manufacturing that could cause some small changes.
For instance I used to order my bows to max out at an exact poundage...lets say 60 lbs., but when I got it it would only go to 57 lbs. Draw length, cam orientation, A/A length, etc. were perfect so I didn't want to change anything so I put a brass washer (about the same thickness of the plastic washer that is between the limb and the mushroom pivot), so not much but it put the poundage at 60 or 61 lbs; which was right where I wanted it. So what I am saying is small (unnoticable to the eye changes in riser length, limb deflection, etc. can cause thing to not be precise from one riser to the next.) However they should be pretty close.
