The newest addition to Gillo's stellar lineup, the GX lives up to all the quality and versatility expectations one may have for a Gillo riser. 

This riser is specifically designed for any archer who requires a lighter weight riser without sacrificing the build quality and adjustability of a high-end professional riser. The GX features the same top-notch technology from the GT risers in terms of poundage adjustment, but weighs in at only 1170 grams (compared to 1350 grams). The floating limb pockets, much like the GT, allows over 30% poundage adjustment range.

This versatile riser is suitable for Olympic recurve and barebow shooting alike, with special round seats on its body for optional weights and a front stainless steel stabilizer bushing. 

The body and pockets of the GX riser is machined from a solid aluminum bar with a beautiful matte anodized sandblasted surface. Its aluminum 7075 limb alignment plates and stainless steel limb bolts are ultra durable.

Glad I took the chance

I had never shot the Gillo riser before but was intrigued by the floating limb pockets and that the GX is lighter than the GT. That big flat grip really helps me push the bow forward and not torque upon release like a narrower grip does, so I can ignore the bold colour. The weight kit fits seamlessly and adds to the mass weight and the bow holds really well. The limb pockets allowed me to use only two sets of limbs to cover over a 14lb weight movement from 20-34lbs. This bow sits well in my hand, shoots well and my confidence has soared. My groups are getting tighter and the scores are moving higher. I would not hesitate in recommending this bow to anyone

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.
