I think it is one of the best "gift to myself". All equipment was has I ordered. There was a small problem but it was due by manufacturing problem and CAO solved it real quick. They even did the basic alignment. So thank you guys for fast, accurate and after sale service. Thumbs up.
Recently moved to recurve from compound, bought 40# limbs thinking I would be able to handle it considering i can shoot compound all day without issues. Went with a set of cheap limbs to develop form and strength/endurance to make my way up to 40#. These work great, order a set of limb sleeves as these cheap ones don't include one like the high end W&W limbs do. Will probably get a set of delta carbon or delta foam limbs @ 34 or 36# in a few months
These limbs have delivered the best results for those looking for budget limbs. I purchased these a few months ago and have had nothing but great accuracy out of them and they have done quite well.
Definitely highly recommend these to those who are just beginning or need a backup bow. I purchased these along side my Kinetic Ember riser as well. Great combination!
I’m 85 years old and these limbs are perfect for me while I take up archery again after about 11 years. I’m very pleased.
I am a beginner and these are amazing!
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.
