Goldseeker Bow limbs
I have an old but good condition Goldseeker Bow bought from new. It has 38lb limbs at 28". However, due to age etc., I now require less powerful limbs ie 30 - 34lb. I understand that the Goldseeker limb fitment is unique to this obsolescent bow. Archery for me is now recreational so would prefer to hang on to this bow rather than buy another. Anyone know of another matching make or have any original Goldseeker limbs they want to sell.

From memory the Goldseeker was a Severn Products bow design by John Millinchip.
It had a unique limb fitment with a metal attachment to each limb that slotted into a dovetail on the riser. This made for a relatively heavy bow.
I've not seen one for 25 years. I guess they still exist (in peoples attics, garages etc.) - I would keep an eye open on ebay. Quite a lot of bows from this period are cropping up these days (e.g. Yamahas and early Hoyts).

If it is a Goldseeker Turbo, then Hoyt TD2 limbs would fit it or even a Samick Progress 1.

Being new to the system and a computer luddite to boot I've experienced some delay in logging on again, so apologies for my tardy reply to your prompt responses.
Thank you Simon W and Eddie Edmunds for your general advice and encouragement, and thank you Old Bloke for your specifics - yes it is a Turbo GS and so I will be monitoring E Bay for the limbs you specified. I know there are easier and more modern options but... I like this bow.
hi i think that bob lee makes bows with the same type of limbs as are on the goldseeker? but i could be mistaken? if he does not then, then have a look at fred bears bows, i think you will have a lot of difficulty finding any lighter limbs as its a field bow and most limbs would tend to be 45# plus
good luck with your search.
