    Default Changing limbs, what do I need to know?

    I have a Scepter 4 with 14" mag limbs. I found a set of 17" elite limbs and I'm thinking about giving them a try. What I need to know is: what does the marking FU 6H mean? What will be the effect on the ATA and my string and cable lengths? I know I will need new strings and cables but how do I figure out what the specs will be? Thanks for the help.

    The bow currently has M-Pro Cams on it. I've been looking for some NOS cams but they're a little scarce, it seems.

    That's the limb deflection code.

    Thanks. I got that the 6H is limb deflection and should be about 65 lb max. How about the FU. That's a new one on me.

    The FU is possibily just a lot desigation, batch number, something like that. The Elite limbs on my Cougar are marked F 4M.

    Thanks Elkslayer. The seller thinks the limbs are pre-2004. Do you know if they would still fit my 2008 riser?
