No worries at all, Friend. If you turn some up that’d be sweet. If not, this post will forever hold the serial numbers I need to reference to find them in the future if someone posts them up later on.. I don’t really know what to look for in the number to identify the same limbs at 50 lbs though. what would “869TSD15” look like for 50 lbs limbs or different color?
PSE used to send tune charts to dealers that would include the limb deflection numbers. That number is not a serial number but it is a identification number for those limbs. You should also notice another number on each limb like 61 usually just hand written and not each number will be the same one may say 62 or 60. So like on your bow you will have 4 limbs and each should have its own number but 2 might be the same. On a 4 limb bow you do not want to but the same number across from each other but opposite of each other starting with the highest number on the upper right side. Then the next highest number on the upper left. Then do the opposite on the bottom limbs. To simplify what is going on it has to do with limb deflection or strength. One limb may be 60lb one may be 60.111 and so on. In a perfect world all limbs would be the same. So when a bow says it is a 60 lb bow and you bottom the limbs and it says 60.5 lbs or 59.8 it is because of this. It is more critical with finger shooters that is why they worry more about tiller on their bow. Sorry I am getting long winded...and going into some engineering speak which I am not and don't do. Anyway feel free to PM me if you have any questions or want bored with more details.

Yea I've had a similar issue with Elite. I absolutely love my elite synergy. So much so I tried to stock up on some new parts from elite so I can extend the life of the bow. Elite does not have any and will not be making any parts is what they told me.

With that said I do know Matthews still makes and carries parts for their bows even if they are 20 years old. So I now hunt with a Chill I got pretty cheap and its a dang fine bow.

I still shoot my synergy, but know that someday its gonna go boom and thats all she wrote. Luckily its not exactly a high power high stress on the limbs kind of bow so it should last longer then most.

There are some people out there on the interwebs that stock up on all those old parts. Keep digging, ill bet you will find some limbs. I feel like maybe you could contact gordon glass and they will make you some limbs? Not sure if that model PSE used Gordon Glass limbs.
