So yes they are the next step but on a potentially divergent path. As the OP was talking ILF I took that as a given. Or has the limbs shape gone backwards? Either way they are more Marmite than the other limbs on the list.No, the CV9 aren't the next on the Border super recurve path. They are a bifurcation, as their super-super recurves move forward ...
Thanks mate -I had seen Jake' early reviews hoping for chronos etc soon ???Jake Kaminski has some of the MXTs (foam and wood core) at the moment, and has so far posted a couple of videos on his youtube channel where he ended by saying that he would be posting another at some stage with some actual figures, I think he hinted at DFC / chrono data.
Shore Shot archery has a review or two of the Zest, with some comparisons and if I remember right some chrono figures.
Thanks .. The MXT are a nod to border as they have increased the "recurve" to "smooth out" the draw and reduce stacking .. hence my interest . I have One wood - nice - bit slower but good limbs and feel - also have wiaiwis power ( foam cores) faster than one .. haven't been able to try NS .. that's the bummer with archery so few of us are able to try equipt before spending sill amounts of money : I have MK vera wood which I love but looking to increase as they are 36# and looking for 40# now I love MK BUT they are so hard to find in the UK and impossible to test As it will be my last and only my second new pair of limbs ever I am really trying to be sure. A friend who shoots nationals in Poland loves MK Zest ad said he found MXT stacked ...odd given they claim the oppositeThe first two limbs you mention are simple evolution from what has gone before (EX Prime/ and Power and Veracity). The CV9 is the latest on Border’s Super Recurve path. I don’t think you can compare them anyway other than shooting them. Super/Extreme designs (see also Ukkha XCurve etc) are loved by some, not so much by others.
On the more traditional limb side the MK MX is probably the faster limb if Chrono is what you’re judging by. Also the MXT are advertised as being stable - if it is speed you want then surely the NS-G or NS Foam? I would be surprised if you were disappointed by any of theses pick the ones you fancy the look of
Personally I’d go Zest or MXT Wood as I prefer stability and generally have a slight preference for wood core limbs.
Riser design might influence my choice.
At a guess, based on DFC and speed, the Border will trounce all the other contenders on the list. But only you can tell how that delivers in terms of results. There are others in the forum with much Border love and I’m sure they can tell you why they love them.
Hi as ever great responses from the forum. Yes I am aware of Border - I have Hex 6.5 wood and hex core , also had Hex 7.5 UNTIL they exploded in my face at full draw .. I preferred the 7.5 "feel" to the 6.5 but have lost some faith in hex and wood core hex because of this - they were less than 300 shots ! am interested in th CV9 but all the data s Sid's and I was looking for independent data and actual usage comments. My interest is in FITA 1440 and 720 with some interest in clout and field but not string walking .. sighted only .I use flatbow and horsebow for "instinctive" styles .Yes the ease through clicker is a main interest of mine .. hence the CV9 consideration .. but as I said I have lost some confidence in border limbs at present . The MXT seem like a nod to super recurve but as I said above I have had some disagreeing comments from the coupe of people I know used them. MK I know are god quality limbs and the claimed speed increases of the zest makes them interesting as a border competitor . hence my conundrum . plus all are EXPENSIVE .. Border the most . Thanks I knew you would respond and your input as ever is greatly appreciated .Hmm. If you saw them in comparison to Hex8 ILF, CVX and Hex9 you'd understand. They are different to all of these. However, if you just mean that they aren't the conventional limb shape that the big manufacturers are still going with then, yeah, they're super recurves.
If you look at the DFC there is a flat spot between 23 and 28" where the draw weight remains almost unchanged. *that* is what limb profile does for you. Forget this 2lb per inch or whatever. You do the work early in the draw and have it smooth and easy through the clicker if you are using one. So it's not just about speed. It's about feel for the shooter.
