Default Morrison Max 6's

Not sure if anyone follows Morrison on facebook. He revealed the new Max 6's today. Pretty impressive numbers, the new talon bolt down riser looks awesome to. I love the idea of a bolt down that can accept ILF limbs.

Some time ago, I had stated on a thread to a new riser designer that the riser of metal or laminated material having a separate limb pocket. I have a old compound riser with this option. The riser and limb pocket have matching grooves. Which allows lateral movement and is removable. I have tested all kind of compound, recurve and one set of longbow limbs with this setup by modifying the pocket. Unfortunately, just testing. Riser to deflex to be shot these way. Well I did test shoot a set of extra short limb that spit a arrow out pretty fast for a trad bow. Lol. Just use it now for rest modelling.

Ok, I watched the video. Not sure what to think??? 9 grains per pound is very light for a SR.

I think Brandon chose 9 grains to compare to conventional limbs. I don't need a comparison to conventional limbs. They SHOULD blow away conventional limbs.

I really have to watch it again. I'd like to know the poundage of the bow and the spine of the arrow. Is the arrow tuned to the bow?

All that said speed is very impressive at 9 gpp and 28 inches.

Poundage was shown in the video, at 26 inches, 43.3 and at 28", 46.5 pounds.

Would love to see this with 10 or 11 gpp myself.

Not sure 'tuning' would affect raw speed much, unless something was way out of line.

I don't know how he could be more transparent to be honest without having an independent person test them. Which I would love to see.

I must have missed something since I saw a strictly ILF riser. Unless the dovetail insert can be removed in favor of a stud or something?

They're ILF limbs, what's your question? (Looked like a Phoenix riser 'in the white'.)

Realize these are ILF (and quick), just heard chatter about a riser which must have not been in the video.

That's right bolt down of the Cheyenne riser is what he said.

Different Video Grant where he is holding a new wood riser that accepts bolt down limbs that go where the ilf detent goes, or you can put ilf limbs on it. Said he can modify old cheyenne risers to accept the new liimbs if you send it in. Didnt actually show the riser in bolt down configuration.

So you'd have a Cheyenne that accepted either bolt-downs or ILF limbs? That would be 'wicked cool' ;-)

This is a tough crowd, his vid was to announce the New Max6 limbs are now available. Set tested where shorts on a 17" ILF riser. The same limb form with a different limb butt will be for the Talon bolt down riser which will also accept ILF limbs just won't look as good.
IBO believe is 5 gpp, I do know AMO is 9 gpp. 10,11,12 gpp is what some may .want to know. I'm sure the more limbs that are built the more spec to be posted on his FB page.
The Cheyenne riser and limbs can be modified to accept Talon riser or riser to accept ANY ILF limb.
I did notice in vid when comparing the 2 limbs, there is a Talon riser on the table, one on the left..

I asked most of those questions on FB messenger and got the info Bob posted. And the limbs can be made for a DAS or DALLA riser. I didn't think limbs could be any better than my MAX 4's but everything Bob said about them has been verified to my satisfaction. So, having said that, I have no reason to mistrust what has been shown. All of the Max limbs i have dabbled with have proven to be fast, quiet and extremely easy to tune. I doubt that there is a better limb out there for hunting. The only draw back to any of the big hook limbs is that some just don't like how the draw cycle feels.

Bill, a habit is a habit. Shoot SR's for a long time and go back to conventional and you 'just...won't...like how the draw cycle feels.'

Bob, I don't think this is a tough crowd, knowledgeable with a lot of questions. And I don't think they're doubting questions.

And untuned arrow won't get as much energy out of a bow as a tuned one. I was wondering because it's pretty hard to get an arrow tuned at an exact 9 gpp pound with a 3.2 pounds difference. (Which is damned smooth.) Could you just add 28.8 grains and have the same tune at both poundages?

I was also wondering about the spine, because you don't tune a bow to the poundage of the bow, but the energy delivered to the arrow.
