    I see Uukha is going to be offering a new "S" curve profile limbs on December 1. Anyone have any insight to what the profile might be?

    I have a set of samick discovery r3, foam carbon limbs that do not have the same curve shape. If I set the limbs next to each other the one limb curves up sooner and the tip is about 1” different location. Anybody see any concern with using these? Not sure how will effect accuracy or other...

    Back in August of last year I posted an explanation of the linear approximation of the draw force curve and what we can learn from this simple model. However, what you gain in simplicity, you lose in accuracy. Still, it does a pretty good job of explaining bow performance from a qualitative...

    If anyone has shot both of these, how would you compare them?

    Guys I have a set of Uuhka vx1000 limbs headed my way and I trying to decide what riser. I want a 19 and am leaning toward a Das riser (yes I know I will have to convert the limbs no biggie) but, also have the Phoenix and Tradtech on the list. I can’t shoot the so which would you pick and why...

    On several occasions I have discussed the linear approximation of the draw force curve. We call this an ideal bow. It is a useful device for understanding draw force and energy relationships at you change draw length. While it may not predict the exact draw force and energy, it is a useful tool...

    Which has a more consistent dfc a longbow or recurve ILF limb. I am looking for a limb that might have a steady increase from start to finish.Not to concerned about speed but more smooth drawing.

    Need to try a lighter set of limbs due to an injury. What are your opinions of these limbs? I am familiar with Border and Dryad, but never shot Uukha. Thanks Gil

    Was i the only one that noticed the Supercurve on a DAS riser at the 3rivers booth at Kalamazoo? The young man working at the booth at the time said that it will replace the z4 limb option and he believes that it is built by Sky. Seemed like a very nice limb, I thought it was a Max4. It drew...

    Putting this in here as an example of a draw curve for a rarely-encountered kind of bow. These Plains bows are essentially short (47") longbows, with short practical draw lengths to match. This is a lighter weight example, obviously. The ones capable of taking down Bison from point blank range...

    Learning to post pics also just like the limbs,this is all new to me.

    Thinking of getting one or the other but not sure what the real difference is. From their description looks like the xcurve may be smoother at the end of the draw. My lack of experience leaves me wondering if that is bad or good. Any advice or info is appreciated. Walker

    Hello everybody, My name is Nancy And I'm from the Netherlands. Me and my husband started shooting in june this year ago with a Mongolian horsebow (husband) and a longbow hybrid. I'm currently having some difficulties, because the members of our archery club have no experience with traditional...

    These limbs continue to impress. As you may have read my first set came in a bit below my desired draw weight so I ordered another set and will be selling the first (see below). I have been shooting my EBFs in the interim anxiously waiting for the new pair to arrive which they just did. This...

    I was just on alt website and noticed uukha has released yet another limb profile called the vx1000 x curve. They are making claims of being smoother and faster than the new hoyt quatros. Very pricey, but haven't seen them mentioned on here yet...

    A pair of curvy French beauties showed up today. These are the 90% carbon limbs with the 2015 curve profile. First impressions are these limbs are tiny compared to my EBFs. The tips are almost non-existent and the width is narrower throughout. They have a bit more recurve but not much. I...

    Hi Guys, I'm looking at getting back into shooting a little bit of recurve. My problem is that I am a 32 inch draw and am having trouble finding a curve that wont stack up on me. Dad had a cascade golden hawk magnum 48" in 60lb, but he got rid of it cause he was looking at buying something else...

    Just wondered if anyone has any experience or advice about tuning for stringwalking with the super curve limbs. I'm kicking around buying a set, because I'm impressed with the speed I've seen at the club, but the ones here are all Olympic recurve with positive tiller. If I buy a set for...

    Title ain't too clear. I'm talking lbs/ inch of drawlength.(not sure my phrasing is correct) What I am asking is if your draw force slopes slightly before taking an upward curve at your draw length is that the ideal performance wise. My longbow drops down slightly at 28.5" before starting to...

    Am going to buy either a set of SF Elites carbon foam,, 217.00 Or a set of Kaya K 3's. 204.00. USD Do you guys know if one has more curve by the limb tips than the other?? Figured that would tell me which was a bit smoother through the clicker. Not sure though. Would love a set of Borders, but...
