    Default My new limbs.

    Sorry but for some strange reason i couldn't post these in the off topic group. Ok so these are my new 2011 powertough limbs. In the second picture you will see this dowel looking thing that goes through the limb and looks the same on the back side as well. Has anyone seen these on the new limbs? And does anyone know why they are there?

    Those are "rivets" to strengthen the tips of the limbs.

    MBH, they started using them on the dual cam bows a couple years ago I think. Now I believe they are putting them on all limbs.

    Speedy, and here I thought they were for mudflaps in case you hunt in the really nasty stuff. lol
