    Hey guys,

    Just purchased my new creed and had a 27 inch cam put into it because its original 28 was too long.  My draw weight is about 56 or 57 #’s right now.

    I noticed the orignal sticker on the limb said 26.5 / 70   and i asked about this and the shop said that when i first tried it out they may have put a different cam in there for me or it was swapped out at some point.

    Anyways….

    What i am worried about is that i am drawing 56 pounds on a 70 pound limb potentially but i have heard there should be a stamp on the limb designating what they are rated for.  Could somebody help me find this stamp locaiton i cannot see it anywhere and also…… has anyone backed a 70 pound down to 56 ish i hear that could be a very bad thing but the shop set up my bow so I assume whatever limb i have is okay .

    The bow is shooting fine btw and hasnt blown up on me.

    easiest way to check limb poundage is max the bolts out(if bow is in spec) and check poundage . this will tell you for sure. there are no visible markings to indicate poundage other than the sticker on the creed limbs.

    Welcome to the forum {#emotions_dlg.mathews_hugs}. Mathews bows have approximately a ten pound range of weight reduction from the bow´s peak weight.  If your bow´s peak weight is 70 pounds, you can adjust as low as  60 pounds .  The stamp could be on the limbs.

    Thanks guys,

    Like i said my original sticker said 70/26.5 but the dealer said this doesn’t always correspond as i had a 28 size cam originally and now have a 27.  I never asked the dealer about the limb because at the time i wasnt aware they were specific as i am new to the sport.

    I can’t believe that there is no stamping on a part that can vary like this , the cams are stamped, why not the limbs? I have heard even the heli-m has stamps to indicate the limb poundage.

    I am currently at 56 and really hope i am not on a 70 pound setup because you would think the shop would be aware of this as they are a mathews dealer and should know about these things.  My guess though is that my limbs are indeed 70 if the sticker was the only indication.  I hope its safe but I will have to check it at the shop i just wanted to try and figure this out myself before i go there next.

    I don’t know if new strings can affect the safe range for this or not but i did have custom strings installed to replace the factory stock ones right away.

    I bet there is some kind of stamp under maybe the limb pocket black things that cover the end of the limbs? but taking it apart is the only way i see it being visible cuz i cant find any marking anywhere.

    thanks for any help.

    you are correct in that all slim limb model bows had a stamping in the limb,on the inside near the limb bolt hole. however ,on the creed and chill, the limbs are pinned into the pockets and I saw no stamping on any of the update limb kits we installed on the demo creed and chill. if in fact you do have 70lb. limbs, your bolts must be backed out more than 5 full turns,which if that’s the case, your dealer sold you the wrong bow if you wanted a 60lb.

    Good advice !!!

    I don’t know about replacement limbs. The limbs on my Creed are stamped on the under side of the metal pocket. Up inside the pivot hole area. It appears they are coded. For instance, the upper is engraved 60550 A, the lower is engraved 60049B. My guess (and that’s all it is) I have 60# limbs and the last three digits refer to a build code, or line production code. I have seen similiar engravings on a 50# bow. Those numbers were 50550A and 50049B.

    Maybe a tech. or a Mathews dealer can confirm this for us. I too would be interested to know for sure.

    70#’s have no stamp on the limbs. The stamp will be located underneath the warning graphic on the the limbs. You will be able to feel it by rubbing your finger on it. You should be able to see it also but may need to hold it in the light just right. Also the creed and chill back out roughly 3-4 pounds each turn maximum of five turns.{#emotions_dlg.mathews}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_monster_blue}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Those numbers were 50550A and 50049B– these are the part numbers for the creed cups and has nothing to do with limb poundage.

    You are correct Sir!!! I rechecked the 60 lb. bow. I read the numbers wrong. The metal limb pocket pivots have the same number on each bow.   Thank You !

    I was at my bow shop last week and they have 2 creeds with no limb sticker……..They said they came that way.

    I dont see you pulling mid 50’s on a 60-70 bow….something stinks IMO>

    Hey guys, 

    Just purchased my new creed and had a 27 inch cam put into it because its original 28 was too long. My draw weight is about 56 or 57 #’s right now.

    I noticed the orignal sticker on the limb said 26.5 / 70 and i asked about this and the shop said that when i first tried it out they may have put a different cam in there for me or it was swapped out at some point.

    Anyways….

    What i am worried about is that i am drawing 56 pounds on a 70 pound limb potentially but i have heard there should be a stamp on the limb designating what they are rated for. Could somebody help me find this stamp locaiton i cannot see it anywhere and also…… has anyone backed a 70 pound down to 56 ish i hear that could be a very bad thing but the shop set up my bow so I assume whatever limb i have is okay .

    The bow is shooting fine btw and hasnt blown up on me.

    i have 70lbs limbs on my creed and have a short draw, as i have the 26″ cam ….dealer showed me and explained to me about ability of this bow being able to be backed out below the 60lb..i started shooting mine the day i got it at 53, then slowly working it up as i have had 4 shoulder surgeries and was concerned about this ….so seeing it to believe it can be done at lower lbs….i have a no worries after slinging 1000+ arrows already and no issues…perect from first arrow til now….i’ve been from 53 up to 65 checking speed with chrono and playing around with wraps, vanes/fletchings….checking lbs w/ gauge and no issues ….fast, fun and whiisper quiet…love my creed!
