powerstroke of older bow

Post by mikej » Fri May 02, 2008 10:17 pm

does anybody know off hand what the powerstroke of the older exocets (carved tip, safety on right hand side not back four small holes in riser ) would be trying to determine if its a 165 175 or 185

All Exocets with carved limbs were 165 lbs, with a 15 " draw and a cast riser and automatic safety like the Wolverine in the early models. Went to 175lbs with 15 1/2 draw and machined riser. Exomag were 185 lbs.

It is my understanding that the first year for the magtip limbs was also the last year for the 165# Exocet. I don't believe there ever was a 175# Exocet with carved tip limbs.

If the bow has automatic safety it is 165 lb and an early model at that. All exocets with carved tips were 15" draw till 2002 the second year of machined risers. You may have made an error measuring the draw length. :(
