Strung limbs

All day is fine. If you were shooting an all day competition you'd leave it up. The same bow at a flight competition, I'd let it down after 6 arrows. Horses for courses. I have seen a top end foam core limb from a very big manufacturer that's had it's butt take a set. But you'd not know unless you compared it to an unaffected pair.

Compound limbs are not made from fibres, but powder, so are unidirectional. Completely different behaviour.
Can you provide any reference for this? I'd be interested to know the process as I'd assumed they would be a fibre and epoxy matrix.
