I'll toss in my 2-cents worth before the real experts get here. I think the LF means the outer limbs are derived from the LFM and are a bit shorter than the regular or medium outboard limbs. That shortens the draw length range and makes the bow a "Super Short" on the label and for reference in the charts.

And the LFM would stand for the "light force magnum"?

The LF does stand for light force and refers to the length of the Oneida outboard limbs. The Oneida extreme is the best bow IMHO made by CPOneida bows in Marion Michigan. Congradulations :mrgreen:

I have to tell you, you have purchased one hell of a bow. The only thing that compares for me is the Falcon. Another in an arsenal of great bows. The Pro is very hard to humble in its own though. Good luck and shoot straight!!!!!!!!!

Mark the cponeida extreme and falcon bows are the exact same bows with the exceptions of the cut outs in the riser. I have and shoot a falcon with our American Eagle parts other than the riser here now. CPO priced the Oneida Extreme Bows to 1100 dollars when they came out with them selling as a limited edition bow. Selling 250 and a few more. When in Marion speaking I asked why only 250 Oneida extremes. Told them it was the best Oneida IMHO. The question was never answered. It was on to another subject. Then after some time the falcon came out. Which as you stated is also a great bow.

The Falcon also seemed to be produced in very limited numbers. You would think that when you have something right you would stick to it. Shame really.

X2 I am no longer an Oneida dealer but have been told the Oneida falcon and Oneida Black Eagle have both been discontinued also. All three great bows IMHO

Gene, I shot that buck about seven years ago now. He was a beast. Had two broken brow tines or would have went Boone and Crocket. The neck on him was unreal. I rattled him in on the dead run the 23rd of October. It was a thrill! :)
