    What kind of sealing are you thinking of? I do not have any experience with that matter.

    Whats about superglue?

    I did a search at AT and there is often mentioned to seal limb splinters and so on with superglue...

    Superglue will be too brittle in my opinion.
    I'm not sure that sealing the small area that needs to be sanded is really necessary but then - that is a good point.
    Think I will look into marine (boat) sealers and see what there is.
    Or maybe just a good automotive clear coat.
    Hey - possibly just clear finger nail polish...

    Friends, i had an awesome idea!

    What about a Frankenbow with split limbs?

    I had a vision of a ShadowCat with Split limbs and Nitrous Cams. What do you think about that? Do you think this limbpocket could fit? Instead of the Standard Hoyt, PSE or Mathews pocket it seem not to be aligned by a second bolt. The drilling at the shooters side seems to be empty on other pictures.

    Almost any type of sealer will work. Even fingernail polish. Got any on hand? Sorry, could'nt help myself, the pun just wanted out. LOL. But seriously, the linbs do have a sealer coating on them, sanding the inside of the limb tip will expose the limb material, and any sealer from fingernail polish to spar varnish will re seal your modification.

    I always have lots of high gloss clear fingernail polish on hand.


    I works great for sealing up new nuts and bolts on black and chrome hot rod motors and custom choppers so they stay shiny...

    Avoid the High gloss! Lol. I swaped all the screws in my sight out with stainless, and to avoid that shine, I heated the allen head until it turned a blueish color, barely noticeble, and they don't turn red over night like the OE screws did. Kinda moist here in the Pacific Northest. I live 4 miles from the coast, so I either have fog, or marine layer when it's not outright raining, so for me heat coloring the stainless was the way to go, now I just put a drop or two of oil on the tip of every screw once a year, just to cover all bases.
