    Cartel Fantom & Limb Poundage

    Hi all,
    I have been searching the internet for an answer but can't find it anywhere so I'm hoping you can help.
    What is the highest limb poundage I can use on my Cartel Fantom riser? I am thinking of upgrading to either 36 or 38 lbs. Thanks

    On an archery outlet's website I found the bow for sale and the options for limbs goes to 40lb

    Wouldn't weight on the fingers be more appropriate? Drawing 40# limbs to 24" is a load of difference from drawing 38# limbs to 32", for example.

    I translated the question as what are the heaviest limbs the riser can take; as if the riser may not be strong enough for the highest ones out there.

    Yes that's as I understood it too. However, putting a limit on limb weight, which is measured at a certain draw length, seems inappropriate. For example, if they said "do not use limbs of 40# or more", it would suggest that some long draw length archer would be okay with 38# at maybe 32" and equally they'd perhaps disadvantage a short draw archer who only draws 23" but who would like 44# limbs to achieve mid 30s OTF.

    Off the top of my head, I'm sure the manual that came with my son's SF Axiom+ L riser says not to set it up above 40# as opposed to stating a specific limb weight maximum.
