    If limbs are going to cost $160, you might want to try looking for a used bow. At out State indoor shoot last weekend, there were 2 great looking Conquest target bows for sale. They were asking $175 each for them.

    Why do u need new limbs? Are your old ones broken/spoiled? Are they no longer suitable for you? Do you wish to upgrade? Are u a new archer? Is the riser yours? Cause, to my knowledge, simply buying new arms are rarely worth it.

    Srry, I'm new at this. I guess I shouldn't have given advice on something I ain't too sure about. But this ol' veteran I shoot with just claims that if you were out to change your limbs to increase your poundage, you might as well, get the whole thing. Of course if you're on a tight budget, that's a whole other story. So, srry I can't help you there.
