    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.

    I just had to quote my own post as you did not respond.
    I got the measurements of the OK limb pocket. I need to figure if i can work with this next weekend. Would be an awesome bow...

    Sorry - the thought of quad limb bows puts me in shock for awhile...

    Reason is that i want different limbs for my bow. I searched through the interweb and came to the conclusion that i'll have to use either some limbs from other companies that get the from Barnsdale anyways or change to Quad limbs.

    Martin used to make a split Elite limb.

    If you can find a set of those limbs and pockets, I am certain they would work. Unless you have a Roto-cup riser.

    You would need a pre 2008 riser.

    Yeah, it's pretty much moot.

    You can put NOS cams in any limb that would take the C.A.T. cams, but the Nitro cams are too narrow.

    Most people don't realize how difficult it is/was to make a solid limb pocket for split limbs. I just don't see it being feasible with Martin's Roto-cup design.

    Right. And that is why i did a search and came up with the NBA and OK limb pockets for split limbs. Yesterday i got a message about the exact measurements form the OK one so i can see if it will work.

    If not.... I will find someone to machine me one of my own design.

    Okay, i have two news for you.

    (1) i made the limbs today and got them fitting for the Nitrous Cams. Just without spacers. I had to remove around 2mm on each side just to get the cam inside. I do not want to remove any more. Now i need to find spacers to put on the sides of the axle. I have around 0.5" of axle without any spacer on it yet.

    (2) i measured the riser where the limb attaches to. I may need to build a custom steel bolt to fit the OK pocket into - but as far as i know i could make the Beiter pocket fit to the ShadowCat riser. Well, i might have to remove some aluminium from the upper riser area.. but... Should be no problem. Now i need to find out if the NBA pocket is a little bit wider. It has the same design as the OK pocket. If it is 1/4" wider at the base i could make it fit without additional work.

    Simon, if you can't find better, you can cut spacers out of a plastic bottle - the material is thin and tough enough for this job i think. Every good machinist could make you the needed bolts, just take the parts with you to try the ready bolts - in case they need some extra work. I'd like to know how is your project developing, so keep up with your posts.
