    Skulz Camo (89) (+USD$ 35.00)

    High performance, ultra speed, ultra smooth.
    The Firecat 400 has all the features and is equipped with Nitro Hybrid Pro Cams, some of the fastest cams ever made. You want Big Speed? How about 335 fps speed that is smooth and accurate. The Firecat 400 is one rock solid hunting bow. Features such as the new TRG and SOS keep sounds soft and vibrations hushed. New PowerTough Limbs are standard because your workhorse demands reliability. Newly designed Nitro Hybrid Pro Cams draw incredibly smooth but deliver head-shaking speed. Aim steady, shoot without a sound, deliver your arrow with some attitude behind it. You’ll like shooting a Firecat 400… we promise.
    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
    Speed: 335-345 FPS (70#, 30”, 350 gr.)
    Let-Off: 80% (adjustable)
    Draw Weights: 50#, 60#, 70#
    Draw Lengths: 27” to 30”
    Brace Height: 7”
    Weight: 3.7 lbs.
    Axle Length: 32”

    Nowhere does it say Black Carbon limbs are standard.

    Maybe not so much on topic about the Skulz camo but relevant about the historical accuracy of the website. Here's my story....

    The 2010 Martin website listed the Firecat TR1 as coming with Stone Mountain strings (played into my decision getting the Firecat because I had heard about problems with the Double Helix string). I ordered a TR1. Come to find out, the website was incorrect, and the catalog listed the Firecat with the Double Helix. I love the Firecat and have no regrets, but I was disappointed to find Double Helix strings on my new bow and that the website was inaccurate.

    It sounds like you have a similar situation with the site not being accurate on every detail. I hope you get it sorted out to your liking.

    A problem with the website would be one thing, but I have a 2011 catalog in my hand that shows a firecat 360 and an onza in full skulls camo, then a shadowcat, a ridge hunter and an exile in skulls camo/carbon limbs. No where can I find which is "standard", just says "available". Personally, if I were to order and had the choice, I would prefer the limbs dipped too.
