    International limb fitting ??

    Ain't limbs a problem these days?? I've got what I hope is not a really stupid question.

    Does anyone know whether the manufacturers (some or all) have made any changes to the "international" limb fitting?
    I've had reason to buy a couple of sets of limbs recently (debt rather than lottery win ). One set of Samicks, One of SFs. Both are significantly tighter in the riser(s) (Spigarelli and Winact) than the previous (SF and Hoyt) - so tight in fact that I may be needing a weight training programme to get the b*ggers out again after a shoot.

    Just a coincidence - or have I had my eyes and ears shut and missed something important? In the meantime, WD40 rules!

    The only thing you've missed is that there is no standard for ILF limbs. In fact, the very term ILF is a misnomer. Other manufacturers just copy the Hoyt fitting without following any standard. This explains the variations you and others experience.

    ...limb fitting

    Blimey John - worlds record fastest reply! I know what you mean - it just seemed a helluva coincidence for both new sets to be so tight! Perhaps I'm just weakening in my old age - or perhaps I should be grateful for a more stable fit

    Some manufacture processes leave A bit to much vanish on.

    Had the same with my new limbs,

    Got one of the chaps at the club to take it down a bit where the limb goes in the socket.

    Would recommend that your very careful if you attempt to remove any though,

    I would not chance it so left it to the pro...........

    I would lay off the WD40 if I were you you can't tell what it will do to the limbs long term. Try rubbing the affected area with a soft pencil the graphite in the pencil should help.Or may be a little string wax?
