That's right Jim. My Scepter 3 with the straight limbs is without a doubt the best, most forgiving bow I have ever owned. I like the straight limbs so much I bought a set for my Cougar 2002 and it hasn't shot better. My draw is just a tad under 28" AMO so the string angle is just right.JDES900X said:Yes, there are several archers here on the forum shooting the Scepter3 with 16" straight limbs. The axle to axle is about 41 1/2 with great speed . The Scepter 3 is a very accurate riser, capable of the speed of a 3-D rig with the tack driving ability of a good indoor/outdoor FITA bow. The straight limbs are a little less expensive than the Elites but they have the same great carbon dipped finish. EPLC is one Martin shooter here on this board shooting a Scepter 3 Fury X with straight limbs. He swears it is best shooting bow ever.
