I shoot bows in the 45-55lb range and the shelf center cut distance can vary dramatically from my ASL's to my past center recurves. I draw 28 1/2 and have been shooting BOP shafts at 29 1/4. Also...

    For those of you that has shot or owned both, what difference did you see between them? Worth the extra $$$$? $220 vs $400, unless I can find a used set. Noise, feel, vibrations, and speed.....

    I'm trying to decide which limbs to put on my 19" Hoyt Dorado, any suggestions? I want a medium limb so I end up with a 62" bow and I want 45-50#. Also if I go with the tropics will the 68/36 limbs be the ones to get me at 62" and 45-50lbs on the Dorado?
