So I’m in the market for a new set of limbs on my 19” Hoyt Satori riser. Currently I have the factory 45# Hoyt limbs. When I bought the bow a year ago I had 35# limbs and wanted to get my mechanics, draw, shooting sequence and all that before I went up in weight. I hunted this year a little bit with it and was able to get an arrow into a nice buck. That’s another story however. I used to shoot a compound religiously and have everything in my shop for a full archery shop set up. However I sold the compound and pot committed to the Satori and decided I’d try it for a season and if it wasn’t for me I would go back to the compound tail tucked. I have yet to buy another compound and caught the recurve bug. So I was looking into the Uukha limbs but are they worth the money? Is there another limb that is equivalent to them but lest cost?

I have a pair of the Evo2 and Tuulai limbs. They shoot great, are smooth and quick.
Do you know if they feel like your drawing less or holding less weight? And are the speeds faster than the same pound limbs say in 45# satori limbs?

I wouldn't say they feel like you're drawing & holding less weight. Usually people describe those qualities with the super curve limbs. What I notice is that they're very smooth through the draw force curve and they don't have noticeable stacking to me. My draw length is about 29 1/4" and I don't feel stacking. As far as speed, I can't really say. I've never chronographed them. Jake Kaminski did a review on two Uukha limbs. Here is one of them. His review is excellent and I think you will find this helpful. Although the Evo2's are discontinued, the new lower cost limb offerings from Uukha (SX50 and Gobi) seem to be an improvement on their already good design.

Thank you!

Lancaster. I got the 34 pound limbs and should hit low 40's on my 15 inch riser. Will make a 62 inch hunting rig.
And that leads me to another question for everyone. My arrow set up is 580g with 325 of that up front. Im in Montana and hunting elk so I’m curious if anyone has had a similar set up and if you’ve had pass throughs on bigger animals than deer?

I have 3sets of Uukhas….but also about 4 sets of others.

I oder limbs from Alt services- usually cheaper and a much better selection.

I think the best bang for the buck is the WNS limbs between $100-200. Those C3 or C5 compare to limbs costing 3x more.

Knowing what I do now, If I was buying another set of Uukhas it would be the SX50
.
So, wanna sell a set of those Uukha’s?

Hahaha no that’s kinda why I ask. I bought a Christensen Arms Traverse in a 28 Nosler and of course mounted a very nice Vortex scope on it. Needless to say it was over 3 grand easily so I might wake up dead if I dropped 800$ on a set of limbs

Try them first if you can. They have a strange feel that some love others can't get used to. I'm in the later camp. They are so smooth that you never get to that stack point that is the 'wall' on a recurve. Without that stack point I struggle with consistent draw length.
I’ve heard that! Would a palm clicker like the one Tom Clum makes be beneficial for those that can’t seem to get used to that spongy feeling?

Do you that have those limbs fee that a palm clicker/trigger would be beneficial for that softer back wall so to speak? I used one when I first started and I feel it helped me with my consistency. I think I’ll start looking hard at the SX 50 as some of you mentioned.

Ok, so I just ordered a set of Uukha Selenga 62” 50# limbs and I’ll get back to this thread when they show up.

There not spongy and you don't need add on gadgets to shoot them. Anchor point is not defined by draw holding weight.
Yeah I get that! I was just asking if you think they would be beneficial for getting a feel for them and being consistent. I’m just trying to learn as much as I can. Thank you.

I tried the RMS solid grip trigger, didn't like it, and string clickers. I'm back to just using a solid shot cycle and getting better results. I try to trigger my shot with expansion of my draw side back muscles, that is what I'm hoping these Uukha limbs will make easier.
I have the RMS trigger too but it’s wore off now and the only thing left on the grip is a sticky backer piece lol. Now I kinda use it as a hand placement reference. I was kind of hoping for the same thing in the limbs as you mention

UPDATE: Got my hands on a set of Uukha Irbis 55# 64” limbs and I have a 60X Custom string(61.25”). Have around 75 arrows on the strings and limbs now. At first they seem to draw really heavy upfront and then as I get to full draw it’s very light IMO. I’m a 29” draw and I shot 500’s, 450’s, 400’s, 340-50’s, and a 300 spine arrow. After finding brace height of 8.25” and moving the rest so the arrow is just a tad left of center, that’s where it shoots the best for me. My guesses were I’d be shooting a 350 spine arrow with 175-200 grain tips plus inserts. I consistently shot them tail left. I pulled out a 300 Victory VAP TKO from my compound set up and stuck a 200 grain point on it and stripped the fletchings off….. forgot to mention this was all done with bareshafts. Is shot true and straight everytime. With a 150g head it was a little stiff. The weight of that arrow without the fletching and wrap is 519g and through my Chrony it’s averaging 192fps. I’m pretty happy with the results of that so far. I also ordered a set of Uukha Selenga 50# 62” limbs to see if I like those any better. Will update again when I get those. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!

Got another set of Uukha limbs. This time in a 50# Selenga 62” set. Slapped a new ABB string on it and started shooting. Brace height is at 7 3/4 and I have a 1/2” nocking point. Shot bare shafts and had to do absolutely no twisting in the string. Bare shafts tuned in the first couple shots and with the beaver balls installed I can hardly hear the bow at the break of the shot. Haven’t chrono’d yet but it’s really liking a 350 arrow with 200 grain points. These limbs seem to draw a little smoother than my new Uukha Irbis limbs but those are also 55# and 64” bow. So far digging the Uukha limbs and listed my Hoyt satori limbs for sale.

I ran the Ex1Evo2's on my 21" Satori and am now currently running their flagship Sx+ on my Win&Win target barebow setup... actually, both I shipped to Jake and are the actual same 2 sets that he reviewed that Longbowfanatic mentioned above. I agree with everything Jake said on the Evo2's but personally disagree on the Sx+ findings... but he isn't wrong he said they felt a bit squishy at his 29+" draw length which I don't feel at my 31" draw length so that makes sense.
I will say the limbs are absolutely worth it... the construction of them is different than the standard core/backing method taken by almost all the other limb manufacturers out there. The current line up, if you haven't already found out, delineates how much of their monolith carbon is used in the construction of the model limbs... so the Sx50's are made with 50% carbon, the Sx80's are 80% carbon and both the Sx100's and Sx+'s are 100% carbon. The remainder of the material used is glass. They use uniform construction so the damn things pull smooth at butter but punch fast on the release. Very very nice.
Having owned the Ex1Evo2's (Uukha's last gen entry level model, 25% carbon) and their current top of the line Sx+'s, and also having got to shoot friends bows using the Sx50's and Sx80's... as much as I hate to admit it... I don't think the prices equal what you are getting. Like of course I like the Sx+'s the best out of all the other ones I have shot... they are just a bit smoother, just a bit faster, have a nicer shot feel... but they are $1,000 US. You can get the Sx50's for about 1/3rd of that... and the Sx+'s are not 3 times better. The Sx50's, imo, are the best bang for you buck in the Uukha lineup. They are absolutely worth that price and I can't imagine there is any scenario in which you regret buying them.
I’ve been shooting the Uukha Irbis 55# 64”limbs on my 19” satori riser as well as getting a set of Uukha Selenga 50# 62”limbs this past week and actually taken a couple shots this past weekend. In my experience so far they are superior to the satori limbs I had on there and are a lot smoother shooting. I don’t feel the squishy or spongy-ness that some say they have. I feel very comfortable and everything is smooth while shooting both set of limbs. No fatigue that I had with the 45# satori limbs. I by no means am a target shooter but a very accomplished compound hunter and decided to make the transition to a recurve. I figured the Satori was a good place to start and learn and with no prior knowledge of what I was getting into and only having a compound shop an hour and a half away from home I jumped in head first lol. I am glad I made the switch to the recurve. I’ve learned a ton and am still green but I love to learn. When I was looking to upgrade my limbs I knew I was going to have to spend some coin on a good set so I bought 2 . I’m excited to hunt with both sets of limbs since ultimately I am just a bow hunter and not a target guru. I do love the comfort and the speed from these limbs. I think the investment for me was well worth the cost. I’ve harvested numerous bull elk, mule deer, antelope, and mountain lions with my compound now to see if I can get it done with my Hoyt Uukha combo.
