I see no reason that the standard 2000 Limbs would not work for you. Not even sure if they offer a longer limb config for that bow, since it is somewhat parralel limb design. I suggest sticking with the 50-60 lb limbs. The cams are not as harsh as everyone thinks.. I shot my spiral VE @ 60 lbs for everything.I should probably start a new thread for this but why clutter up the board right?
Anyways I am about 99% sure that I am going to own a VE for indoors, haven't shot one yet but I am trying to find one that I can wing some arrows out of. This bow will be used mostly for if not completely for indoor (5-spot and vegas). I am thinking about getting 50-60 limbs but part of me thinks that it would be better with 40-50 limbs. Can anyone comment on that? Also I am not sure which limbs to get 2000, 3000, 3500; I am leaning 3500 being 6'4" the extra length does not worry me much, any suggestions/comments on that as well? Benifits/drawbacks?

Here are my thoughts on draw weight....Adam,
I see what you are saying, on the limbs I am looking at the added brace height and wondering if that would be worth the extra length? Also since it is going to be a spots killer is there any reason to have it set at 60lbs? I see alot of guys that are around that 55-60lbs range for indoors and I wonder if its really needed, and maybe it is to shoot those aluminum lincoln logs with 300 gr. in the front, maybe having it that high of a draw weight is needed i don't know. I just got into this spot killing game so I have a lot to learn yet, but I am hopelessly addicted, in fact I think my addiction to spot killing is worse that my addiction to coppenhagen was.
Okay I see where you are going with that and it definately makes sense. I will keep that in mind when it comes time to order my new bow, it will be a while yet but its never to soon to start my research.Here are my thoughts on draw weight....
Overall, it is going to boil down to HOLDING weight... Considering your height, you are likely 31" + on your DL. Remember that Holding weight is goign to offset MASS weight. This means that the more holding weight you have at full draw, the more mass weight you may be able to successfully stabilize at full draw. This means a more stable sight picture for you.
Now.. That being said, you may not want, or need a large amount of mass weight on the bow for it to be stable for you, which in turn means less of a requirement for holding weight.
Bottom line is that 50-60 lb limbs are going to allow you the ability to have a good range of holding weight at full draw which will likely cover what you need.
My VE required a lot more mass weight than my Mathews C4 did.. My C4 was right at 6.2 lbs, and my VE is over 7.5 lbs. I set the bow up based on the feedback it provided me while shooting over a period of time.. Added weight here & there. Moved it around, & tweaked it until the bow told me that was what it wanted with me behind it.
After adding 1/4 ounce to my front stabilizer on Sunday, I shot a 6 arrow group at 100 yards that looked like I had done it with a rifle!! ha ha
