    I always have problems with limb assessment... It's so subjective. One person's "soft" is another one's "soggy", one person's "crisp" is another person's "stiff"...
    I'd place extremes in the "snappy/reactive" end of things rather than "soft/easy".
    It's the end of the spectrum I've tended to like (previously shot Border XP10 Evo's, currently shoot Hex 7s). Kind of the opposite to limbs like the Hoyt syntactic foam/FX/G3 style.

    Performance wise, they're another upper end limb. Probably not right at the top end now. Decent finish. I'd probably still be shooting them if the opportunity to buy the Hex 7s hadn't turned up...

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.
    Take a good look at what they actually are. Samick have reintroduced the "Extreme" name on their lower spec limbs so they might not be what you think they are.

    Alt services have them listed and point this out.

    If they're the top of the range ones then that's an absolute steal as they are still rated as some of the best limbs made.

    Thanks for the heads up DarkMuppet. I saw the Extreme Cs earlier and the advertised ones are the real deal according to the spec and images. The ones at Alt are 400+

    Very nice! ��

    Have you got the link to the German shop, I wouldn't mind having a browse at what other things they may have.
