I was gonna wait to post any pictures of this, because I plan to put some Onestringer Limbsations on the limbs, but couldn't wait. These turned out great.

Look at them awesome static hooks on those limbs.
65# at my draw, and shoots the 640gr arrow 2 FPS faster than the 69.5# Tradtech limbs.
I'm happy. Can hardly wait to get my skins on them.

I overhauled the limbs to fit "any" ILF riser, and installed limb butt overlays on them. Cleaned them up, and refinished them.

They really shoot great, and are perfectly straight on the Optimus riser.

These are the Bigfoot Sasquatch SS Statics in ILF.

65# at my draw, and shooting the 640gr arrows 207 FPS.

Smooth as silk on the draw, and very VERY quiet.

Nice. Can you drive tracks with it like your other rig?

I actually shot/shoot with these limbs better than any I've ever used, but I had problems with bad alignment with them, which caused some other problems (minor limb failures), but on this riser they are perfectly straight, and I have them repaired, so we'll see.

I think I'm gonna get along with them just fine. Went out yesterday afternoon, and test shot them after just an eyeball nock point setting. I was pounding a tennis ball at 20 yards pretty regular.

Nice. On limbs with that much hook is limb slap less of an issue?

Statics have always shot quieter for me. The hooks don't open up much at draw, so that decreases the slap considerably.

I don't really know about the non static super hooks, but I have heard they are quiet.

As far as shooting goes, these Bigfoot limbs & I have always gotten along real well. I also get along real well with this JC Optimus riser.

Tuned her up with bare shafts & fletched broadheads, made sure my crawls were on, then shot this 5 shot group from 20 yards with my target arrows.

Looks like I'm going to get along with the combination. 8^)
