does anybody know if it’s possible to change an older model monster with a 6″ brace height to a monster xlr8 with a 5″ brace height by just changing the cams, roller guard and strings. according to the mathews web site the ata and the risors are the same length.
if i were a little younger i’d go for the 80# limbs but at 60 it’s all i can do to pull 70#. i was hoping to get alittle extra speed with the conversion and maybe turn down the pondage a bit. i’ve only started shooting a compond a little over a year ago and shot a recurve when i was in my teens hunting with my dad. my son got me started shooting 3d shoots.
If you want the speed and power of the xl8 put 80lb limbs on you monster 6.0 I did and am hitting 360 fps just an idea.
That will not change you ibo rated speed at 5gr/lb.
