    Core limbs fit Samick Poliaris/Sage handles?

    They fit. One thing to keep in mind that pocket size tolerances are a bit bigger than with ILF, so keeping string centered on the bow may be a challenge. Samick wooden riser + Samick limbs were okay; Core metal riser + Samick limbs had a bit more play. YMMV. And keep the draw weight low, proper...

    Easton X10s

    That's why you generally can't buy single X10s, only matched sets. And barreled shafts have an advantage over parallel shafts, but are more expensive to make. So to answer the original question; all things equal a more expensive shaft will not outperform a cheaper shaft. Problem is, things are...
