    Border ILF limbs - family tree

    I have seen posts mentioning many different ILF limbs offered by Border over the years. My experience does not go back far so these limbs are more legend to me. I would like to see a list constructed showing each of the limb models offered, approximate time period, and any distinguishing features. Maybe, we can take a first crack at it and let Sid fill in the blanks. I will do the easy ones -- ones that are currently on the stock list and others I have encountered. Please add to the list chronologically and include dates if you know them. You can also throw in other Border made limbs such as those for Merlin. Reorder the list as necessary so that it is roughly chronological. Here is what I know:

    ****************
    Edited this post to remove initial list that followed. See below for an old post by Sid and a summary of the history of Border ILF limbs.

    We did some XP10 evolution limbs branded as PSE limbs for SSA Archery.

    this would be around the 2000-2001 era.

    From memory.
