    I have this warfed riser that shoots really well but only with the limb bolts all the way down and >8.0" brace height. If I don't do this I get excess vibration and you can clearly see very little pre-stress on the limbs. This says to me that the limb angle is too far from vertical. If I put a...

    Lets say you make a riser and you plan to put ILF recurve limbs on it(not super curves.) You have steeper limb angles than normal. You add some more deflex to the riser to keep the brace height comfortable. You choose a string length to keep basically the same resting tension on the limbs you...

    Finding and measuring pad limb angle and deflex? I going to build a wooden ILF riser and want to confirm how to measure for limb angle and deflex. Soooo I'm thinking that I could take an existing riser and lay it belly side down on a flat surface and using a bevel guage take the angle of the...

    Hey guys, I'm tooling up to cut a few risers. I want to cut the slot to match the pin angle as close as I can. But - the dovetail pin geometry on my 2 sets of limbs are different (see picture). Is there a standard angle that most people use? Or, is it not that critical anyway? I would like the...

    I appeared today while shooting, if I cant more than normal, my arrows start hitting left. Once I mentally straightened up the bow (less cant) I started shooting closer to the bullseye. Does this sound correct? Does anyone have a vertical line drawn on the back of the riser to sight check the...

    What do you use to measure your limb pad angle? I have an old Bear wood compound riser I am thinking of changing the angle for longbow limbs.What angle degree would work best for LB limbs?

    Anybody know what the limb pad angle is on a Black Onyx 15" riser? Ordering some limbs and trying to figure for weight. Thanks, Chris

    EDIT for clarity More deflex plus a steeper pad angle resulting in a limb braced with normal tension but oriented more vertically is what i am referring to. They do seem to be going this way with risers such as the Satori. But why not just take it close the physical limits right now...

    Given the same AMO length and excluding the super hooks will a recurve have a steeper string angle? Thanks

    Hello, I am new to this site, but not new to traditional archery. However, I happen to have my first ever bow / riser that I want to WARF. I believe it has a 19 degree pocket angle, riser OAL is 21.75". Any of you with experience in this area, please let me know what weight / length limbs I...

    On my old Hoyt Gamemaster 2 I drew 25". On the new Satori riser I now draw a solid 27+". The Satori grip angle is much higher than the Gamemaster, which is closer to a compound grip. Anyone have a similar experience? I also wonder if decreasing weight by 5 pounds would contribute...

    Compouders have a offset bracket for a stabilizer. I think it's offset to the left for a right handed shooter to even out the weight of a quiver. Does that bracket work with a bow and a quiver? Bowmania

    I posted this on another thread and thought this build along might be interest to other warfers as it has a unique concept. "I did a unique warf job on my Rambo riser. I did the 1/8 plates as normal with the cutout for the ILF dovetail. But instead of epoxying them down or JB weld or screws, I...

    How much does the actual limb pad angle change when the tiller bolts are all the way cranked in vs turned out? Is it possible to figure something like: draw weight adjustability is 10% which is equal to a 3 degree change in angle? I am asking because I will be building a Bingham take down but...

    1st question is the prohunter riser I have is close to 24° as best I can measure. It appears based on what I have read here that 17-21 works well though I think I saw some that were even at 15°. So what is the optimum angle? I guess it depends on draw length etc and could vary per individual...

    I hear talk of 15 degrees / 17 / 19 etc for the limb pads... how do I check this on my bows? String and protractor?? How? I'm just curious....

    Recent I posted a follow-up thread to Jinksters thread dealing with bolt turns out. My questions was about bolt-turns in vs out and Jinkster provided me with some good detail answers so I told him I would let it soak in. Sorry for the late reply but have been away from my bow making. Here is my...

    I was looking at 15" metal riser and saw that Morrison changes the limb pocket angle based upon riser length. Does any other maker do this? Is it done to keep draw weights the same for a set of limbs regardless of riser length?

    Anybody know for sure what the Hoyt angle is on the dovetail? I have been using a 65x495 here lately with good results and the angle off the fitting clears well. I cut hundreds at 45.
