    Great riser for various skills from barebow to olympic recurve.

    Right out of the box everything was perfect - brace height, tiller, & limb alignment, thanks CAO...
    I was eager to try it out so I slapped on a plastic rest & shot barebow at 10m just to see how it felt and performed... I'm not good by any means but first group of 6 was less than 3" and those arrows were for my old bow. Good feel to the bow and relatively quiet. If you are thinking of moving from hunter/traditional but are sitting on the fence, this is a great riser to try barebow than add as much as you wish whenever you want sooner or later cause it has all the accommodations.

    Awesome. Does the same thing the high end risers do for a budget price.

    Great entry level riser

    I think you can't really go wrong with this riser if you're new to archery, or new to ILF style recurves (my case). I paired this riser with the 28lbs Prelude limbs, a Cartel Expert rest, and the Avalon Classic plunger and I'm super happy with that setup. I believe this riser lacks the option to adjust the limbs left/right, but that is most likely quite normal for a riser in that price range. The handle is comfortable, and the riser is fairly light. Also, not that it's really important, but the riser is much better looking than in the picture (the pic doesn't quite show the paint job properly). Anyway, not that I'm an expert in any way, but my initial impressions are really positive. Well known expert archers on youtube also give the Gonexo risers a good mark for what it is (better than other competing risers in the same price range). Also, fantastic service from Canada Archery online, who were awesome with my questions, and who packaged my order at the last possible second, on Dec. 24th, of all days :-).

    Great value

    This is my first ILF riser. Before receiving the product, I thought it must be somehow poorly made because it is quite cheap. I was totally impressed when I first got my hands on it. As a beginner, I think I can stick to this riser for quite long time.

    Bow sizing based on archer's height for Olympic Recurve

    Olympic Recurve bows typically range in overall size from 66" to 70". Below is a rough guideline for new archers getting started in the sport.

    • 5'5" or shorter = 66" bow
    • 5'6" to 5'9" = 68" bow
    • 5'10" or taller = 70" bow

    The Height of a modern Olympic Recurve bow is dictated by a combination of the riser size and the limb size. Combining long limbs with two different size risers will result in two different size bows. The typical Olympic riser size is either 23, 25" and 27".

    Bow sizing based on archer's Draw Length for Traditional Takedown

    Please note, traditional recurve draw length is typically shorter than compound. If transitioning always scale down at least half an inch for draw length.

    For Adults

    • 5'5" or shorter = 60" - 62" bow
    • 5'6" to 5'9" = 62" - 66" bow
    • 5'10" or taller = 66" - 68" plus, bow

    These are rough guidelines for new archers so they get the most out of their new traditional equipment. For some takedown bows limb length is not a choice. After some experience you may find you like longer or shorter limbs.

    The Height of traditional takedown bows will often be dictated by a combination of the riser size and the limb size. A 58" bow for example can be made up of any combination of limb and riser size that creates an overall length of 58".

    Traditional Takedown bows can come in sizes anywhere from 52" all the way up to 70". Bows that are longer in length are typically used in tournament situations while bows shorter in total length are used for hunting.

    Age and Experience guideline

    • 14 years old or younger = poundage should be the as their age. Example 12 years old should be shooting 12# bow.
    • 18 to 14 years old = 16# to 20# depending on body build and height
    • Adult: Beginner = under 20#, Intermediate 22# to 28#, Advanced with experience = 30# and up.

    All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.

    Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.

    Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.

    We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
