What do you guys think of Trad Tech Recurve Limbs? I see three different levels listed on lancaster archery.

I've been using the TT Black Max wood/glass and for the price are a great limb. I tried a set of the BMax carbon/wood and found them to have a little more performance but not enough for me to switch. That's the fun part of ILF you can try different things and it doesn't break the bank. You might want to look at Win&Win limbs also. I bought a set of used W&W and they are also good limbs and provide good performance.

I have the BF Exremes and they are perhaps the best limb I have shot ...
I also have the Black max wood/glass and they are a great limb for the money ... And make a great hunting limb. The TradtEch line remain my go to's and where I send people who want a great shooting hunting limb ... Samicks who make them know their stuff !
Tradtech customer service is also the best in the business ... Call John Wert, he'll get you set up , no worries.

The W&W are great shooters and I find mine really quiet , ditto the SKY Limbs .....

But my Titans tend to wear the BF Extremes and the Black Max ...

I had the TradTech longbow limbs, they braced a little high but they shot great, about 178 fps with a 400+ gr. arrow.

I've had really good results with TradTech limbs and use/owned several sets of both recurve and longbow limbs. The longbow limbs on my Rambo Warf are 45# at my draw length and put a 365 grain shaft through the beams at 197 a couple of weeks ago. That Rambo is pretty much at max preload, braces at 6 1/2", and still pulls only 45-47# but the Rambo has a little more pocket angle. Same limbs on one of my Black Bears with less pocket angle pulls over 50 and it takes a greater brace height to keep them from noodling. Sometimes it makes no sense....

So I bought an ILF riser (W&W Black Wolf) last night and now I'm in the market for some 40-50# longbow limbs to try it out. Did a web search on TradTech longbow limbs and this ancient thread was at the top of the search results list.

Having trouble finding anything under $450 new, and the usual suspects (3Rivers, Lancaster, etc) appear to not actually have anything appropriate in stock even at that price.  Hoping someone on this thread has an old pair of something that might work that they threw in the closet when they went back to recurve limbs. The only names I know right now are TradTech and Dryad, but I'm sure there are other brands that might work with this riser. 

Anyone have anything interesting tehy might be willing to part with?  Would prefer longs (62"), but am open to medium or XL if that is what you have.

You can try alternativess archery. 

W&W (rapidos are available in 70 38)

WNS (W&W other brand)

Since the limbs are marked on 25" riser, I would buy the 70 (longs) 40 to be in the ballpark of 47/51 or 70 38 for 45/49
