    Default 2008 Slayer X Limb?

    Just bought a new 2008 (leftover) Slayer X with the M-Pro cam setup. How can I tell what limbs are on this bow?

    13" Super Mag.
    There will be a deflection # written on the edge at the limb butt.
    5H, 3L, 7M, 4H, etc...

    It reads 3H and has a 6.25 brace height with an ATA length of 36.75". What do I have???

    Default 13" vs 14" limbs

    Also, can someone tell me what the difference would be on a 2008 Slayer X using the 13" Super Magnum limbs vs. the 14" Magnum limbs? Assume both would be using set up with the M-Pro cam...

    Can't get into the spec charts for 2008, however it has specs similar to the 2009 Warthog so 3H should give you about 70#. As for th rest of the specs it's a guessing game. The Slayer was manufactured with Cat cams which are maybe going to give different specs than the M-pro. With the M-Pro it was most likely a custom order job.

    The main difference you'll see with 14" limbs is about 2" longer ATA and taller brace height. Also, but just a guess, you'd have to use something like a 4H or 5H limb to get the same draw weight.

    The MPro cam is not the norm. most Slayer Xs came with C.A.T. cams with
    14" limbs in 08

    Bfisher, we were typing at the same time, so mine is out of order.

    Is 3H the correct designation for the 13" Super Mag limbs? Also, does anyone know if there is an IBO speed rating on this configuration - 08' Slayer X with M-Pro and 13" Super Mag limbs?

    No IBO rating that I know of. Maybe LeEarl over on AT would have some info. I know he does a lot of tinkering and may have done this.

    Roger, you're not out of order. Your posts are as welcome as mine or anybody else's. Keep 'em coming bud.

    I have an older SlayR with 14" 5H limbs and the M-Pro cam. It is silky smooth and smokes them just fine! It is a 70# bow...hopes this helps.
