Biggest differences, advantage/disadvantage :noidea:
:noidea: It matters not to me. Either the bow works for me or it doesn't.
According to Hoyt:
"Hoyt's patented 3/4" Split Limb Technology provides for an effective overall width of 2¼ inches, creating much more lateral and torsional stability than that of a traditional 1½ inch solid limb design. The 3/4" Split Limb design also eliminates the vulnerable v-groove and limb bolt groove or hole where failure most often occurs on traditional solid limbs. 3/4" Split Limbs are lighter, more efficient and provide increased arrow speeds, durability and accuracy"

bowtech's limbs are both...solid at first, but usually split at some point :biggrin1:
Most bows are solid limbs for a reason, why? Inquiring minds want to know. Are they easier/cheaper to make?
:doh: :doh: :doh: Doesn't every limb have to split to fit the cam in??:doh: :doh:
:gossip: I'm telling pink to cut you off for that comment.
dude....that is harsh! I am allowed to bash bowtech all I want....100% of my bows are bowtech and I love em!
Ok, we'll let you off the hook :hug: since your a bowtechie.
Split limbs went against everything I had learned back in the 80's about limb twist. I broke down and bought a Hoyt Protec last year and I gotta say the bow can shoot. It made me a believer that split limbs are ok...:noidea:
Why what Hoosier?????:noidea:
I really dont think it matters.
Long bows and recurves don't split to accomodate cams! :laugh:
:laugh: :biggrin1: Now that wasn't called for.... ound: ound:
tell me, how did that work out for you???:noidea: :tape:
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
I was told that split limbs were more forgiving than solid limb bows,hence the X-force,bear,very smooth bow, and others.............:wave:
I'll preface this by saying that I've never tried them, but it would seem to me that if each side didn't have the EXACT same tension and flex that there would be some serious tuning issues.
I guess that I have always been under the impression that the primary reason to have split limbs is to reduce limb weight/mass, and thus gain speed, but I honestly do not know that this is the case.:noidea:
Amen! Any of today's quality bows shoot far beter than us humans can.
