This is for those of us that do not want to, or cannot, spring $600 for a pair of limbs. The $350 price range should be high enough to include most low to moderate level carbons. What do you say? What are your top 5 moderately priced ILF limbs (under $350)? What are the best limb values out there: performance for the dollar?

Bduplin's thread on "5 top limbs if money is no object" is getting a lot of action. I started this thread as a response so that the "common man", who does not have the chance to shoot high end limbs, could voice their opinion and provide guidance and leadership to the money challenge majority out there. Also welcome are high end limb shooters who know what a good limb feels like -- and have opinions on moderately priced limbs.

$600 a set -- I wish!!! Maybe if I could just buy the upper for $300 and pair it with a TREX lower. What do you say? If you cannot name five, tell me what you have shot that you like and not like and why.

Currently, I am stringwalking with a set of PSE Pro Elites on a Best Moon Arco Nudo and really like them. They are smooth and produce good velocity even at my longest string crawl. This is my indoor bow. I am breaking in an outdoor setup and probably will need a new set of limbs once I figure out the draw weight that I am most comfortable with at long distance.

Sebastian Flute Carbon Foam limbs are without a doubt the best deal for the buck. The old model was great and Alt. has some on sale for $133! I haven't shot the new model but I am sure they will preform much better than the price tag suggests.

That sounds like a great deal. Too bad their aren't any left that are 30 pounds or over, sigh...

S. Flute

I recently bought some Flute GSF from Alt. I really like them. I am a weekend warrior not an elite but they do shoot very well for me and at a price that anyone can go with. around 175. Gar.

I also am just a weekend warrior, but can say I recently purchased a used set of Samick Masters and think they perform equaly well to the Winex's I had. and the feel is better IMO. nothing against Winex, they were incredible limbs but Masters can be found for less.

IMHO it is better to get pre-owned top of the line limbs than brand new mid-range ones.....

After carefully considering all the input above, I made my choice:

Border CXB 36# at $353

(Nevermind that shipping was another $68 so it definitely did not end up in the $350 range).

These limbs were not mentioned by anyone -- oh, well.
