Hi,

I have recently purchased a used strike eagle bow and was wondering what kind of check should I do on the bow before I shoot it? I don't think it has been shot in a while.

Thanks,
Dave

Hello Dave and welcome to the oneida eagle bows forum.
I would look at the power limbs for any splintering. The outboards for any delamination. The power cables for any broken strands and the string for wear. And look at the rest of the bow for obvious signs of wear.

Thanks,
I would really like to keep the wood limbs on my bow because I believe that they would be quietest limb. After looking around the internet I see that a lot of oneida shooters upgrade a lot of their parts. Is there an upgrade other than the limbs that you would recommend?

The only upgrade for the oneida strike eagle I would recomend would be going to the oneida aeroforce limbs

are you talking about the powerlimbs or the recurve limbs?

I was talking about converting your bow from an oneida strike eagle to an oneida aeroforce

Hi Joe, I put my new cables on today every thing looks good but I have a question about the plastic yokes. With the old power cables on, the yokes would actually touch the limbs as soon as the cam rolled over. When I put the new cables on I slid the yokes away from the limbs so they would not touch the limbs at full draw. Is this right? The yokes are not designed to act as draw stops right? Also, do you have draw stops for a bow like mine? Thanks, Dave

your assumption is correct, the yoke plates are not draw stops. But make sure they're not too far down either. They should not touch anything (but the yoke cables of course :mrgreen: )
Also if you are working on your bow yourself check out the video section here:

Its awesome! Step by step directions for almost every maintenance or repair situation.

When your setting the yoke plates on your bow you should set them about 3/16 from the top of the timing wheels. I have seen some set the yoke plates on their oneida bows so they acted like draw stops. But not recomended. As for oneida draw stops we have some here that will work good on your oneida bow.
