Thread: Jaguar T/D limbs on Phantom 2 riser?

    Default Jaguar T/D limbs on Phantom 2 riser?

    A friend of mine just gave me an older phantom 2 riser (with limb pockets) and I was wondering if I could adapt the Jaguar limbs to it. Is this possible?

    Just in case anyone tries to do the same thing I'm doing, it is possible to us the Jaguar limbs on a Phantom 2 riser. The limbs bolt up directly with no modifications and the bow shoots great. The quality of the Phantom riser is definetely better than the jaguar so it's a win win.

    Looks great Use a simple rest - Martin has a spring rest, which i've read is good. Or may be a Whisker Bisquit?
    2008 Martin MOAB - 45-60#, set at about 51-53# / 55#" Perfect Line" compound/ 55# Mongol horsebow/ 45# "Perfect Line" takedown recurve/ 45# Bearpaw Grizzly hunter recurve/ 55# Samick Longbow Cheetah ... and several homemade bows

    Oh alex..

    Whisker biscuit on a recurve is a bad idea.

    Take a look at the videos from my fellow countryman Werner Beiter who made highspeed studies of arrow movement.

    Think about a spring rest to start with!

    I thought about buying a Cougar1 and building a recurve out of it after i saw those photos. I just wodner if i could convert it to accep ILF-limbs.

    I got a NAP center rest flipper which seems to work pretty well. Does anyone have experience with the AAE Cavalier Free Flyte rests?

    Does the Cougar have removable limb pockets? I'm sure bolt on ILF limb pockets could be designed for it. Sounds like a fun project.

    Until 2008 or 2009 all bows had the removable pocket. The Cougar is from 2002 or so. Might even consider one of my Razor-X risers for that project.

    The first set of limbs delaminated on the first draw so I took them back to Martin and they gave me a new set. I shot about 150 arrows yesterday without any trouble at all. This morning I picked up the bow, put it in the car and about five min later my wife and I hear a crack! The limb delaminated in almost the same spot! What is up with these limbs?
