    Winex Limbs

    I am thinking of changing from my Winact to Winex limbs. All my club members with carbon/foam limbs seem to have an almost effortless time, drawing their limbs. Win&Win, Borders are the popular brands. No one has the Winacts unfortunatly. I have 40# limbs and have 43# on the fingers. Should I increase to 44# or have an easy time with 42# Winex limbs. My arrows will still be spined for the increase, although I will get another set of Navigators or X 10's for next season outdoors. I want a flatter trajectory. Tighter sight marks, and the ease of draw afforded by carbon/foam limbs.I realise that if I am holding 45#, I am holding that poundage, but the carbon /foam limbs certainly feel lighter and easier. Shooting a 27 1/4" arrow and 68" limbs on a 25" riser, I would not think stacking is much of an effect. Advice and opinion please.

    You arrows may be spined for the increase. The usual opinion seems to be that Winex shoot a few pounds faster than their actual weight (compared to traditional limbs like the Winact). So the combination of a draw weight increase and moving to Winex, might be an issue...

    You'll find a big difference with Winex I think. I'm on my second set and they're lovely limbs...they're also faster than the poundage suggests so you should get some yardage for free...go to W&W site for the math.

    I shoot 42 # limbs w 45# on fingers and only have to move the sight in a little at 100 yds shooting Tungsten x10's...with ACE's no movement is necessary...walk in the park...cast to spare

    enjoy


    ps...I'm using 470 ACE and 450 x10...so spine might be an issue

    Winex are superb limbs, smooth to pull and especially around the clicker but they are fast. The theoretical arrow speed from my bow should be 190fps but the claculated speed using sight marks from 30 & 80 yrds yields an arrow speed of 200fps. You can see why they behave like heavier limbs.

    Kato and Big Boy Blue, please can you tell me what # limbs you moved up from. Any problems with the increase, excluding arrow spine. Was the change worthwhile in terms of points performance, class and ease of shooting?

    I moved up from using 34lb Everest Pro's with no problems. For me even with the sight nearly full out I can get all ranges from 18M to 90M within the sight bar. Settings are 2.15 and 91.2 respectively.

    I cannot enlighten you any further as I also changed to ACE's when I got my Winex, so I was only shooting Plat Plus on the EP's so any comparisons are not worth much.
