Ok, Steve goaded me into buying a set to try. Ordered a set of XL 45# limbs as I will be using them on a Dalaa 21, my Das Elite and the Tribute. My goal was to be about [email protected]
and hit around 44-45 at my 30.5” DL. They came in today, by the way super quick free shipping.
First test is on the DAS Dalaa Nat Gear riser (21”)... by the way a great riser. So 21” riser and XL limbs gives me a 68” bow. I dug through all my strings, not a 65” not in use ..... so grab out the 8125 and make an 18 strand endless loop string. String up the bow, set nock set at 3/4”, set BH to 7.75” and check poundage. On my draw board with my scale... at 1.5 turns out on the tiller bolts:
28” I hit 39.07# and 44.5 at my DL. Sweet. Cranked down it should be over 45 at my DL. Grab some 500 spine beman ICS hunters with 125 gr tip that are cut to 30”. About 4” weak. Grab some 400 Ultralites with 100 gr tips at 30”... about an inch stiff. So tunable.
First reactions, quiet, smooth draw but started to stack a bit at 30”... from 30-30.5” poundage jumped. I need to retest but memory I think it went up 1.2#. Didn’t setup my chrono but the Bemans are 420 Gr and appeared pretty quick, even the extremely heavy Grizzly Stiks with 175gr tips (over 600 gr arrow) was no slouch. Tomorrow I’ll setup my chrono. Just as a reference I shot my hunting setup at 48# on the Tribute just to compare.. it’s close.
So first impression is very darn good product, I normally wouldn’t buy “cheap” limbs, but these are very nice so far. Quality looks good. Let the testing continue.
