    Default 09 Firecat Limb Deflections

    Anyone know what 2H is on a firecat? is this a 60# max limb?

    Brem,

    Check out this thread. It has some info that should help you determine the limbs you have or may want.

    Just doing some math and working it out from my 2008 FireCat----I have
    1M limbs that give the bow a 50# rating. 2009 added the CCS which would raise that by 5# to 55#. So I'd say 2M would add another 5# to 60#. Going from an "M" limb to an "H" limb would add about 2# more so 62# would be right. In other words, 2H is right in the ballpark of 60#.

    OK I went to the link and it makes sense....until I looked on my 2006 P3 with elite limbs and they say 10H. Can some one explain that?

    Since you mentioned Elite I'd have to say your likely comparing apples and oranges. Two different companies that likely have different codes for their limb deflection rates.

    Elite limbs are Martin's 17" recurved limbs. They have nothing to do with the Elite Archery brand name.

    Increasing limb length, always requires a higher deflection number limb, to get the same draw weight.

    I don't know what method is used by Martin, to measure and set the deflection number, but it doesn't remain linear as limb length is changed on the same riser.

    I have a Martin P3 with 6L limbs that max at #60 with Nitrous A cam's,
    so your 10H limbs weight is about #20+ more then mine, if yours has A cams.

    Roger,

    I just look at the pics of your bow from an earlier post. Nice bow and what a deal! Anyway here's a link with some pics of the pne I picked up. You think this thing will pull #80? It's set now at #65. I've recently worked out all the kinks and it's shootin' fine.

    Here's a link with some pics of my bow.

    It won't be #80 with those cams you have, it should be about #70, but nice bow.
