Is there a definitive way to tell if a certain set of DD limbs are FF-compatible? Thanks!

Dale always shot FF strings on his personal bows, so I would assume you can use it also!

There is a Difference shot them for years Fast flight n Dacron bows were mine he build In the 80s limbs that were builded in the 90’s We’re fast flight builded.

So limbs built in the 2010s are all FF-compatible? I’d love to see photos of non-FF versus FF-compatible tips IF there is a visible difference.

Any of Dale Dyes bows build in 2010’s are fast flight Tips. The ones that are not fast flight are all wood Tips you can still use fast flight but don’t dry fire bow it will be trash.

Thanks so much, MH. I am loving shooting a bow with your name on it as the original owner. I intend to keep shooting a B50 / B55 string because I prefer the feel, but I was just curious. God Bless.

I am sure mine pictured were made in 2013. I have another set that may be new old stock. They are significantly different.

I’m revisiting this thread because I finally took the time to photograph the two sets of limb lips I own. The thicker tips I know are from 2013. The others are somewhat unusual in that they are black fiberglass (no veneer) and though unused, are of indeterminate age. Most DD limbs I’ve seen have the core material split at the last few inches of the tip with an addition layer of black material between them, but these black fiberglass limbs do not have that layer. Again, it’s not an issue since I am shooting a couple nice B-50 strings that I had to re- serve. It’s just a matter of curiosity.

@Elkpacker1 : I suppose any bow can be damaged or destroyed if abused.

Looks like the thicker ones have a reverse taper or tip wedge in the middle of the stack, as well as an additional overlay(micarta, phenolic, glass, or?) under the wood overlays.

“Reverse taper or tip wedge”… at least now I have something to call it. Thank you.
