    New limbs needed, post injury/surgery

    Hi All,
    I'm settling back into shooting after a rough 2015/2016. Wear and tear on my left elbow(bow arm) from old injuries saw me drop in poundage from 42 to 34, then stop shooting entirely for surgery and rehab. After a little time with 16 to 20lb club bows I'm back shooting with a full recurve setup and 24lb KAP Winstorm limbs. 18m scores have jumped from <500 pre surgery to now 550. I'd like to have a second setup and am wondering about better limbs. Out of consdieration for the elbow I don't want to rush to a higher draw weight. But 26lbs in a faster limb seems like a good idea.

    I have no complaints about the KAP limbs but pretty much anything should be an improvement. Any thoughts? SF Elite and Uukha X0 seem like good options.

    SF Elite 26 lb were the ones I switched to when I was recovering from illness.
