I have an '09 Bowtech Sniper with 50-60 lb limbs that I would like to switch to 60-70 lb. The bow shoots very well, and I am generally pleased with it. I would just like set it at a higher weight, and later get a target bow with slightly less draw weight.

I have two questions:

Is there an online shop that can quote and supply the limbs?

Are there any alternatives that could be recommended for that model bow?

I would think you would need to go through a Bowtech dealer to get the limbs and they could switch them for you as well. look at bowtech's web site to find your nearest dealer...Randy

One of my only gripes with Bowtech is the need for a dealer to press the bow. I am sure that you are correct in that it would to go through a dealer.

I contacted a shop, and was quoted $150.00 for the limbs. It is a shame. For that price, I would be tempted to use it toward another bow.

I really like this bow, and want to keep it for a hunter set-up. I am planning on purchasing a target oriented bow. Ideally, I want the hunter bow set with heavier draw than the target bow... I really would prefer 70 lb limbs. There is not much hope for me to justify two new bows... Frustrating, I really dislike the disposable/replace concept.

$150

is actually not bad. I had a Drenalin limb issue and was quoted $240 in So Cal and $170 in an IL shop. Check the classifieds on here and you may pick up a set, just a thought.

If you live more than 30 miles from a Bowtech dealer, then you can order limbs and other Bowtech parts and accessories from: www.huntersfriend.com. You'll still need a press or a shop to install. They are the only authorized dealer (that I know of) who can sell through the "Bowtech in the boonies" program.

You can then sell your 60 pound limbs in the free classifieds right here on archerytalk.

Timmymac24,

Wow! Maybe $150.00 isn't that bad.


wdriver,

I think that I have seen you post about the Inspire... That is one of more target / 3d bows that I am looking at purchasing. I sure would like to see a comparison between it, and the Exceed 300.

Two bows I'm very interested in trying.

Limbs

I just paid $130 for limbs/installed/setup on my guardian. Local bow shop did a great job - as they always do :)
