I've been on the classifieds section for a few weeks now eye balling some future prospect limbs to accommodate my 19" Satori riser to make a nice hunting rig and although I had a lot of great responses, I couldn't find the exact ones I was truly looking for. A fellow archer lefty4 (Doug) really gave me some insight on Border and Morrison style limbs. I am so glad he did. I have heard nothing but great things from both types of limbs and decided to do some research. The next day I ended up giving Brandon a call and he is such a great guy! Really down to earth and answered all my questions thoroughly. Anywho, to make a long story short, he's gonna be making me a set of Max 5's #47@29" mediums to put on my 19" Satori which should make it about a #45 bow. I am beyond excited to get these and get my hunting rig ready to go for the year. Special thanks to Doug for being patient and giving me more insight on these limbs as well. I will post pics of the limbs when they arrive in a few weeks!

I'm assuming Doug works at Morrison Archery, correct? I have some Max 4s and they're really nice limbs. Can't go wrong if you choose them.

As far as I know its just Brandon and Bob at Morrison Archery. Doug was a guy I talked to over the phone about some Max 4's he had for sale that I had questions about. Turns out they just were not enough weight for me to want to buy for my riser. Doug gave me more insight which led to me giving Brandon a call the next day. If your gonna spend good money on limbs, gotta make sure they are made for your standards. lol

Jared, it was my pleasure talking with you last night. I think you will be truly amazed with your new Max 5 limbs. If you'd like, you can have Brandon send those limbs directly to me so I can make sure they are OK before I send them on to you. Have fun!

From: jaredc91
Date: 21-Feb-18




These next 2-3 weeks are gonna go by so slow LOL and I hear ya Doug. If I ever get a chance to head out your way, your more than welcome to sling some arrows the the Max 5's. Maybe you could help me land a Elk with em. Scratch one off the bucket list LOL

I would like to see the MAX 5s on a one piece like the Arapaho he used to have or the Cheyenne and Shawnee riser.

Doug is president and CEO of "Doug's Huge A$$ Bow Emporium". He had to hire a receptionist to catalog and keep track of his inventory while he tests limb designs. He moonlights as a therapist between my wife and I, free of course since it's his fault that she is always mad at me for buying bows.

I received my Max 5's two weeks ago. All I can say is "incredible". I've been shooting traditional for 61 years and have never experienced this kind of performance. Brandon's going to be real busy once the "word gets out". Joel

I really would like to test the Max limbs, to make up my own mind how they tune , sound and feel.Also like to know how the big hooks respond to pressure shift at full draw on riser and string.

From: Oak
Date: 22-Feb-18




Had mine for about a month and 1/2. Never shot anything like them, and could not be happier. On a 21" Phoenix HD riser. I got 53# @ 26" "shorts".

From: Rick Barbee
Date: 22-Feb-18




Not that I can afford a set (wish I could), but I wish they weren't 60# maximum draw weight.

Oak I have a Warf 21" i would love to put a set on. Have any cheno data off that Riser?

Guess what came in the mail today! The 5's have a really mean curve to them!

From: Bowmania Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member Compton's Traditional Bowhunters
Date: 12-Mar-18




We don't care that they have a mean curve. How do they shoot? What are the specs?

Bowmania

From: jaredc91
Date: 12-Mar-18




I just got them and I am currently making a string for the bow. As of now its a blizzard outside, so it may be a few days before I get the chance to test the bow lol but the specs are 48@28. Will hopefully be able to video me shooting the bow once it clears up outside.

From: Oak
Date: 12-Mar-18




I will try to find a chrono that I can shoot through. Traditionally, I have avoided shooting through them because it just makes me start down the speed road again. BUT, I will say that I can see they are noticeably faster than other limbs I have shot in the same weight range. I'll try to find a chrono and shoot through it a few times. I also hate to do it because people usually get mauled for not being scientific enough.

What is REALLY important to me is getting a little more punch with my short draw length. I want to see an arrow disappear all the way through the sweet spot this fall!

From: Hal9000
Date: 12-Mar-18




what kind of vectors are they holding? just round up to the nearest whole number :)

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 12-Mar-18




Chrono #'s what I meant.

From: Wojo14

I too had the pleasure of shooting the max5 and meeting Brandon. Very nice guy and awsome limbs. I hope to get some soon. In the meantime, if anyone has some max 4 because they upgraded, let me know. Ill take em! ~Wojo

How to you transport them?

From: nineworlds9
Date: 13-Mar-18




The 5s are sensational. Best ILF supercurve out there currently IMHO. If I wasn't addicted to pretty wood veneers I'd have held onto mine. They are blazing fast, really smooth draw with a force curve that doesn't mess with your anchor, and very quiet once tuned properly. Can't go wrong.

From: Ollie Professional Bowhunters Society - Qualified Member Compton's Traditional Bowhunters

I talked with Brandon at the Trad Expo in January. He said the Max5 limbs are about 5 fps faster than the Max4 limbs and that the Max5 limbs gain less than 1.5 lbs/in when the hooks turn over. He told me he is getting a little over 200 fps shooting 10 grains per pound draw weight with the Max5 limbs.

That's big huntin medicine! Made in America

MAPA KAG !

From: Rick Barbee
Date: 13-Mar-18




I talked to Brandon yesterday, and he said they will only build the MAX5's to a maximum of 64#, and prefer to keep that at 60 & under.

I sure would love to see them heavier, but it is what it is.

Rick

From: Adam Howard

64# ain’t enough Rick !! Lol

From: Rick Barbee
Date: 13-Mar-18




[[[ 64# ain’t enough Rick !! Lol ]]]

Nope. It's close, but I prefer to be closer to 70.

From: Hawkeye Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member

Has anyone heard if these can be built for the Cheyenne riser rather than ILF?

From: BOX CALL Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member Compton's Traditional Bowhunters
Date: 14-Mar-18




Wow,what curves.didn't jinkster have a similar set up.thing should be a fast one.

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 14-Mar-18




Bob's bows R killer!

From: Adam Howard
Date: 15-Mar-18




Awesome lookin limbs, but unless ya open those big hooks up how much of an advantage is there other than foam and carbon, must be very draw length specific obviously ??

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 15-Mar-18




Makes a shorter faster bow strung, with less finger pinch on backside!

From: fdp
Date: 15-Mar-18




Hawkeye, you would have to remove the ILF fitting and the have some type of alignment pin in the riser, that mated with a depression in the limbs.

I'd call Bob and ask.

From: Pete P
Date: 15-Mar-18




i've seen the videos of the max 5 on the morrison site, they look incredible...smooth and fast and look torsionally solid even with those aggressive hooks. sounds like they edge out the border super hooks also, likely making them the fastest on the planet. Brandon seeems like a solid fellow too, hope he does well.

From: Hawkeye Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 16-Mar-18




fdp,

Thanks. I do intend to call and ask about the possibilities. It is my hope that the limbs can be custom built with the pins and without the slot to configure them like the Cheyenne limbs.

I always figured you already know the answer... if you don't ask!

From: Wojo14
Date: 16-Mar-18




Hawkeye, Just a couple thoughts came to mind, you would need to make sure the limb pad angle on your riser is similar to that of his ILF riser to get similar performance...Ever think about just converting your riser to ILF? ~Wojo

From: Adam Howard
Date: 16-Mar-18




Imagine if ya opened those big hooks all the way,,,, dang !!!!

From: GF
Date: 16-Mar-18




I’d like to see that bow strung up. Not sure it would appeal to my eye, but seems clear enough that aesthetics came up a long way from the top of the list on the design brief!

Q: 200 FPS @ 10 GPP @ how many inches DL?

And @ Oak: if I can draw 27”, so can you. Besides, if you aren't getting pass- throughs with an honest #53, it’s likely not because your bow is too slow. Too many people have done it at much lower poundage.

From: Adam Howard
Date: 16-Mar-18




I’d like to see a comparison to the Zipper Z4’s just out of curiosity

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 16-Mar-18




Someone had data on a bunch of hooks recently. Speed is OK but it's not the end all be all. How the limb stands the test of time. They put them thru a bunch before they ever hit the street and prolly a year of hunting with the 5's. Then, they went on market.

Brandon and Bob don't use paying shooters for R & D i'm sure.

KAG!~

From: Adam Howard
Date: 16-Mar-18




Sure would like to try a super Recurve but at $800 a set of limbs prolly won’t happen less they have a try out program which I doubt (lol) one can dream I guess... ha

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 17-Mar-18




if you have a riser already, I look at it like your just getting a new custom bow. Takes the sting out.

From: Adam Howard
Date: 17-Mar-18




I hear ya, need one of those to , we’ll see ...

From: Wojo14
Date: 23-Mar-18




Got some MAX 5’s arriving today. ~Wojo

From: CGOWIN
Date: 23-Mar-18




Wow! Those Max5's do look cool. I have two sets of Border HEX V-H limbs. They are sweet limbs. I think they fall between the Max4 and Max5's in performance. I actually ordered my first set from Sid at Border...through Bob Morrison. Bob radiused the limb edges and re-finished them to match a solid Phenolic ILF riser he built for me. Sweet setup and great guy to work with. You guys are making me think I need some of Bob's Max5's!!!!!!

From: Yooper-traveler
Date: 23-Mar-18




I currently own a set of Max 4s. I used them all last year to shoot stumps, deer, opossum, squirrels etc...

Love the limbs. I also have owned Border hooks. I loved those too. I'm hoping that the Hex 8H limbs I just ordered get here in August

They do cost more than a lot of the other ILF limbs out there, and they are not for everyone. Hedgehunter nailed it. I look at buying a set of limbs like I would a new Widow or Blacktail.

From: HedgeHunter
Date: 23-Mar-18




I did not known Bob ever did finish work on Sids limbs?

Give some fewdback on your 5's.

Bob is not prejudice, he even worked with Adcock!!! LOL.

Jared, You have until about Easter Monday to do your review or I'll beat you. LOL. I have a buddy coming over with a pair that weekend and weather permitting we should get to play.
