I chose this, even though I am an absolute beginner archer, because I dont want to spend money by upgrading each time I achieve new level. I also enjoy the tinkering that goes on in trying to get the perfect bow set-up. Take down bows, although fun, are basically "plug and play" bows, and dont allow me freedom to experiment and make those tiny adjustments for competent near vs far distance archery. This is a riser that will stay with me for a long time. Very glad I purchased this riser.
I bought this to get into ILF system so I could change my limbs without having to buy a new bow. I paired it w WNS W1 22# limbs and it's working great. Love the feel and the looks of it. I had to work my way up from 16# Ragim Matrix due to past injury. My goal is to get 30# limbs as soon as my strength increases - at 77 gotta take'r easy :-) one step a time
I bought this riser mainly for it's looks, and combined my order with WNS Explore lombs. It ia a very smooth bow in operation, and delivers arrows faster than my Sage, even though is it only a couple pounds more draw weight. I am happy!
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.
