I have seen where " Seconds" limbs are around $80.00 bucks. Is that Canadian bucks or US?

Bought my back up limbs for my 350 right through Excal and they were $80 plus shipping. Cheap insurance and peace of mind knowing I can get back up and hunting if a problem occurs.

I would like to ask from someone who may be "in the know" if the replacement / back-up limbs are some of the new 2016 "in house" limbs being currently produced with MOTS camo that matches the Special edition 350 SE/LE's correctly ?

Are they perhaps holding in reserve some of the previously made ( but never used ) 405 limbs that match this Special Edition bow, should warranty repairs ever be required ? Or, would I be possibly be looking at a mis-matched ( camo wise ) 350 should a warranty issue involving my present limbs ever become an issue ?

I have total confidence in 350 SE, and don't expect a limb issue to ever take place.... That being said, my origional question is in regards the fact that I don't think Excal catalogs a current model using that camo pattern any more? Therefore, I would think perhaps there would be a lack of " blems " for a model not in current production.

Question probably best directed to Peter.... have a feeling he may be in the know.
Everything else IMHO would be hearsay regarding such a question. Wow i sound like a lawyer.

i wouldnt worry about getting limbs. im sure they will keep enough dip film to be able to have limbs in the future as they are only Matrix limbs with fancy paint and one could always have an outside company dip them too. as to buying extra limbs not sure if its 80$ Canadian but i paid $80 in U.S. currency plus shipping. ive since changed my opinion on buying extra limbs. way i see it is your limbs have a warranty. think id rather have an extra crossbow sighted in and ready to roll than an extra set of limbs. if i was goin on a long distance hunt trip or more than a half hour away hunting having an extra crossbow would be quicker than bolting up and re- stringing limbs .

who do you contact to order a set of replacement limbs. I had an issue with one of my micro 335's a few months ago that was fixed but I would like to have a set around " just in case " if you know what I mean

Why would you need back up limbs?
Some folks just like to have them "just in case". A limb goes out during deer season can cost you a weeks hunting while getting new ones shipped to you. If you have back ups you are right back out in the field. I have a set in a box but have never needed them.
