Ragim Matrix Evo Takedown Limbs
- How to purchase limbs
- Bow Sizing
- Special Orders
Ragim Matrix is the best choice on the market for beginners and recreational shooters. It is a take-down bow that is very easy to assemble, with black fiberglass limbs and black lacquer finish wooden riser. With its light weight, sleek finish, and comfortable grip, the bow is a favourite of many archers.
The limbs are available in a wide range of weights, in 2 lb increments.
- Standard Bow Riser is 24", displaying as the numbers without brackets
- The weights and sizes in brackets assume use of a shorter (20") riser.
- Risers smaller than 20 inches are available on only a select few bows and are often used for youth, such as 15 and 18 inches. Bow AMO Sizes less than 62" will often use these shorter risers.
I love these limbs and use them all the time. Good price. No need to buy over priced limbs. Unless you are trying to keep up with "the Jones's". These limbs look good and do the job. No problems.
I acquired a recurve bow sold by Orvis that it was missing a limb. Orvis was unable to help replace the limb, as was their vendor. Local sports shops were also unable to provide a replacement limb. Canada Archery customer service representative, Gordon I believe, took my information, a bow picture and quickly provided the proper replacement limbs for the bow. The service and product I received was outstanding and I will always recommend Canada Archery to all my friends. PS my grandson loves his bow.
Very affordable. Never had a problem with them. They do get weaker if you've shot them 10,000+ times over a period of years, but that is kind of expected when you shoot that much.
I upgraded to more powerful limbs and they are still perfect condition
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.
