- Fantastic hunting limbs Review by bwshooter
Value Quality Price
The past few years I have been reading about the pluses of ILF and WARF bows on various archery hunting and shooting forums. I broke down and bought a W&W RCX 17" riser and Uuhka medium EX1 Curve profile limbs. I have shot custom and mass manufactured hunting recurves and longbows since the early 1980's. This particular W&W/Uuhka EX1 setup is the smoothest drawing 60" bow I have ever shot. I have a long draw length at 30". Pound for pound it may be the fastest. That being said this setup is also the only ILF riser and limbs I have ever owned or shot. Of the bows I currently own It is also the only bow I shoot off an elevated rest. EX1's are also near the bottom of the Uuhka line price wise, although I considered them a pricey set of limbs at $389.99. I honestly can't imagine needing faster or more expensive limb for hunting. EX1's durability and shooting characteristics are great. I can see them holding up much better than a normally manufactured laminated limb.
These EX1 limbs are very torsionally stiff. Un-twistable, which is a major plus. I don't think any other limb manufacturer can even attempt to claim that. Totally impervious to temperature and moisture. They also look awesome. The Uuhka's are very high quality and their fit & finish is outstanding. The technology involved in their manufacture according to the Uuhka website appears to be light years ahead of the old lam glue up, band saw out, then sand to shape that most hunting type limbs are built with. I don't consider them overly loud when shooting my normal 10 grains per pound hunting arrows. I have a long draw at 30" inches so I really open them up, but they are non-stacking to me on a short 17" riser compared to other 60" bows I shoot and have shot in the past. I have chrono'ed them and they are plenty fast speed wise.
This W&W/Uuhka EX1 setup is my most consistent rig. I can say without a doubt out of all the bows I have ever owned both vintage manufacture and custom in over 30 years of shooting a traditional bow my groupings at all ranges are tighter with the W&W riser and Uuhka limbs than any other bow. I have had these limbs almost a year now, and I am extremely happy with them.
