    I'm pretty new to recurve archery. I'm shooting a Gillo G1 27" with 42# long Hoyt Integra limbs. The riser and limbs were purchased used from different vendors. I have a 32.5" draw length. When I first put the bow together I turned out the tiller bolts 3 turns to lighten the draw weight a little...

    So we've all seen that the new Gillo has 30% adjustment range. Does anyone think that this means we could finally mount longbow limbs with enough preload that they don't get crazy noodly on a 25 or 27 inch barebow riser?

    Call me weird but it seems like a lot of manufacturers go with the lateral limb adjustment block in the limb pocket, owned them and never had any issues but just seems for the price you should get a better lateral limb adjustment. For the price of a high end riser they could come up with...

    A friend of mine is building a wood ILF riser for the first time. What have any of you used for the lateral limb adjustment setscrews and threaded inserts on a wood riser. For the dovetail I ordered some of these from Lancaster, but I am not committed to them if someone else has a better...

    Is this backed out to much? It's 4 full turns. First ilf set up and I don't feel like taking a limb to the face lol Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

    I've got a Warf riser coming. I've heard you are not supposed to tighten the limb bolts all the way down. Is this true? If so, is there a general rule as to how many turns out you should go? New at this so don't want to damage the limbs or anything. Thanks. Bill

    How tight should my nocks hold on to my bow string serving? What's the best way to adjust them? Thanks!!!

    I have not set up a plunger on a bow for quiet some time. I am pretty comfortable setting the plunger for center shot. But I have never adjusted the plunger tension. What arrow issue would cause you increase it or soften the tension.

    I shoot a 3U fixed crawl off the shelf with nockset at 5/8ths high and fixed crawl 3/4 inch below that. My oddity is that fletched and bare shafts fly well (i.e. flat) with no porpoising but the bare shafts will impact 6-8 inches higher than fletched at 20 yds. This would normally tell you to...

    On my AAE master plunger, the diagram shows a spring tension adjustment screw and knob(s). What is the difference for tuning impact of the shaft?

    how far in and out can you turn them? I have only used it to adjust tiller...ron

    The videos I've seen on checking/adjusting lateral limb alignment and getting them in the center plane of the riser demonstrate these adjustments with the bow braced. Is this technique okay even with higher poundage bows? I was wondering if stress on the dovetail detents and allen set screws...

    After bracing an ILF riser, the string out of bottom limb groove toward the shelf side of the bow (left on a right handed bow when looking at belly as you would shoot). I don't think it is the limbs as they track on my samick masters riser which does the same for all limbs I've put on it. The...

    We have decided thanks to your input and a long talk with John Wert at Lancaster about how often adjustment is necessary by those that do it a lot, to offer lateral adjustment as an option on all of our ILF risers going forward. Custom orders will have the option of having it or not depending...

    ok. Mikes had his thread. Bob's had his thread. here is ours. First of all... flex. can risers flex after they are cut. well. its been 4 years since we cut the little riser... and to be honest. I don't know if its moved at all. the middle riser is close to 2 years old. and it moved in the...

    I just would like to know if your buying a new ILF riser to use on a set of limbs you already own, would you prefer the riser to have lateral limb adjustment available on that riser???
  18. TradTalk Main Forum
    OK, be honest. How many of you have adjusted the lateral limb alignment on your riser and why? There are quite a few that have come forward on another thread saying it is necessary but is that because someone told them it is or because they have personally needed to adjust it? I'd really like...

    How many turns of limb adjustment is safe on a Black Bear Warf? I have them 1/2 a turn from bottomed out now, and don't notice any stacking, so i doubt I will need to go much further, but when I get to playing with it tomorrow I want to know what my limits are.
