    Samick Extreme limbs

    Does anyone know if the Samick (Extreme) limbs have their draw weight rated at fully out or half way in?

    Fully out. But be careful, they tend to come up heavier than marked, on non-samick kit.

    Depends on the riser geometry specifically the limb pocket angle where the limbs are measured. For example SF WNS WIAWIS Fully out, Hoyt Mid position. 28" AMO is 28" AMO (26 1/4" to centre of button plus 1.75) then don't forget to add some +/- star dust for ILF mix and match which can differ from riser to riser even the same manufacturer.

    I've got some marked 42, which I can't get below 43 on my old W&W handle, even at my short-ass draw length...
    But yes, given that ILF isn't even nominally a standard, mix and match kit can be a bit of a lottery, even just for fit.

    How do you rate them as limbs today? It looks like a German company has some for about 160 which is really good price as I think they were high spec limbs. I've been out of recurve for 30 years and never really kept pace. Other than these it's probably some Winners Elite Alpha for about 170. If I'm buying from the EU I want to get it done before the end of the month when the 'iron wall' goes up

    If anyone else has experience of the Samick Extreme I would be interested in your feedback.
