I have a TradTech titan III 19" riser. I would like to know what poundage Morrison Max5 limbs I would need to buy to get to 38#@28". Morrison 19" risers have an 18 degree limb pocket angle. I have contacted Morrison archery, and couldn't get the info. Any ideas?

I would think 30 or 32 might do it.

Call Lancaster Archery. John Wert will be able to tell you.

You'd have to know what length riser Morrison rates their limbs. If 25" you'd pick up 6# or so. I believe he varies the limb pad angle on all sizes of his risers to keep them the same weight but that's on Morrison's risers.

Morrison Archery will build Max5 limbs the weight you want for the length of riser you have. If you're buying used, you need to know what length riser the limbs were rated for when made.

I "think" their limbs prior to the Max5's were rated on a 17" riser.

Just my thoughts I would check out the TradTech RC Extremes,and talk to one of Lancaster's techs.They are very helpful in those regards.

I'm pretty sure Jim is correct.

Lancaster won't know and they are SR's so difference between 25 and 19 won't be near 6 pounds.

I don't think you did a very good job of contacting them. If anyone is going to know the answer they will.

There's only one place to get NEW Max 5's and that's Morrison. So when you order tell them you want 38 pounds.

If you're thinking used, I'm more familiar with Hexes and I'd guess that 25 to 19 would be 2 maybe 3 pounds if the turns are equal. THen there's s, m or l. I would imagine if your shooting smalls with a very long draw it'll be more.
