    your a PSE guy why would you try to answer all the questions you dont really know about???

    weight yes but the bigger reason why they went to split limbs is because when a limb cracks or breaks it is NORMALLY down the center....Hoyt took the center out of the limbs....thus creating a limb w/much less faliure.....

    how many people know someone w/a hoyt, with a broken limb issue????

    not many.....
    I cut things up and split them down!

    Hoyt had an issue with limbs cracking for sure!
    But they advertised back in the day they came out with the split limb design for less weight, noise & vibration, over the other mfg.

    you are correct. They didnt design them for helping w/ limb issues. Though it does cure that split in the middle you would get . You silly Mathews guy. And I do know a couple things about split limbs there are 2 of them on tiop and bottom. Well.....maybe just one!

    I have been shooting Hoyts for 4 years and haven't had an issue with any of the limbs due to splintering or anything else. (I had 1, but that was my fault when I slipped and dropped the bow on a rock... chipped the limb and Hoyt replaced all four limbs for free) Do I think they hold up to much more abuse than solid limbs? I would have to say yes, since the bow I got in 2003 is still flinging arrows without any issues with the limbs.

    Can we say that you are both right? "...3/4” Split Limbs are lighter..."

    technically I am wrong. But we all know.. The split limb gives no advantage in accuracy or speed. And oyts risor wweighs so much that any weight advatages is out the window..
