Is there any information out there on the chronology of older Border limbs, on there one peice bows as well?

XP10
XP20
XP30

I think Hex 4s were next. Don't know.
What are the differences in glass and carbon?

The Internet is at a lose and I figured I would try here.

Thanks.

Here is the original post http://www.archeryinterchange.com/f127/border-ilf-limbs-family-tree-26540/

I have a picture of many of these limbs that I am looking for and will post. It is in my gallery on Tradtalk. Also, I have done extensive testing of all major HEX versions and can post comparisons if you are interested.

I just started the process of pulling my test data threads off of various forums and creating content that I can post on a website. My HEX tests will be part of that.

Here are my Border Limb pictures showing the evolution of the Super Recurve. You will notice that the hooks of their conventional recurves got progressively bigger prior to the release of the HEX4, the first super recurve.

The limbs are as follows:

Carbon
Premier Carbon
XP10 Evolution
CXB
HEX4
HEX5
HEX6

I plan on retaking this with HEX7 limbs.

I just noticed that I grabbed the pictures with the limbs in the wrong chronological order. The XP10 Evolution should be first since they are the oldest.

Hank that is a very detailed summation. Thank you.

XP20s and 30s listed limbs were probably only seen on one peice bows right around the early 2000 years.
