Today while searching for a bow for my son I was looking at all brands of bows and noticing their design and construction. Something made me think of the cracked limbs I've read about and got me to thinking. Yes I know, very dangerous for a guy like me (I had to beat those jokesters Hutch and Brad to the punch line!
I wonder if a split limb design is becoming more of a necessity these days with large diameter fast cams? Not to mention there is probably more preload on the limbs than in the past. The larger the cams (supposedly to act like a longer A2A bow I'm told) the greater the leverage it will exert on the limbs. I assume that the fast cams also are much more violent to the limbs.
What do you think, does it have any merit or another am I just another rookie showing he's wet behind the ears?
This is just discussion and not saying anything about Martin or any other brand that chooses to use single split fork type limbs.
