The Matrix Evo 68" is sturdy and easy, making it the best choice for beginners. It features new modern colors with a black riser, black limbs with red tips and limb pockets.
The new grip has been designed to encourage correct hand position. This allows the archer to avoid mistakes and make learning easier. The Matrix Evo is a complete bow. The riser’s new design allows the archer to shoot with the arrow rest or with the shelf rest for a more traditional shooting style. The riser is equipped with the patented innovative Ragim Bow Tuning System, that allows the archer to easily adjust the limbs’ alignment.

5'5" or shorter = 66" bow
5'6" to 5'9" = 68" bow

- 18 to 14 years old = 16 to 20 lbs depending on body build and height
- Adult: Beginner = under 20 lbs, Intermediate 22 to 28 lbs, Advanced with experience = 30 lbs and up.
I am new to archery, bought a recurve at cdn tire no clue what to do. A online search got me to this place - glad it did Got great advice . bought 16# 68" and I am very happy with it. Well worth the money
I purchased a PSE Snake at first, but after using it only once I quickly realized how ill suited it was for a grown adult male. So I returned it and purchased this beauty, which I have only used once so far and I really like this as my first bow. It feels solid, looks great and shoots great too. I feel like I will use this for many years to come. Ragim has some really nice bows.
Haven't had the chance to practice with it yet but I'm still really satisfied with my purchase.
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.
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.
