I am a proud owner of this riser and as a beginning archer I never regretted waiting for it.
Easy to set up.
Excellent riser for adult shooters looking for a trad, target tack driver that is balanced. Beware its weight, you need to have a good shoulder.
I am very happy with this riser. It has all the adjustability needed to be able to tune correctly. I am sure there are nuances of really high end risers that could be beneficial, but this has all the fundamentals. It will tune well beyond my current capability as an archer. I was worried that for this price it may look and feel cheap, but the anodizing is very good and there are no rough machine marks. It looks to be very well built.
Pretty happy with my 18m indoor groups....so much so my 8 year old can't quite believe it...haha
I use the term intermediate hesitantly, this bow will be great for olympic or bare bow. It is highly adaptable and suitable for both. If you get to a point where you want to commit to either you can jump to a higher cost riser but it will easily suit the purpose of both archery types until then. I really wish this riser was around when I started out. If you’re looking to buy your first ILF riser this is the one to buy 100%.
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.
- 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.
