    A good deflex riser for border limbs. Other than a border riser are there other wood ilf deflex risers out there. Considering a Morrison riser.

    As I have stated before, I am new to this game, and now that I have become somewhat more proficient, and am able to spend less time with a metal detecter searching for my errant arrows under the sod in my backyard, I have begun to ponder more of the technical aspects. Can you folks enlighten me...

    I was taking pictures for the narrow grip thread for Daniel and made an interesting discovery, risers are not always the length that folk say that they are, and some have a bit more deflex than others. Left to right: Hoyt 25" Avalon+, Hoyt Provantage 24-1/2", Hoyt TD-3 24", Hoyt 23" Matrix It...

    I'm messing around with a new riser that is pretty much straight to slightly reflexed. Should I expect the brace height to be an inch or so lower? And the effective draw length an inch longer? The arrows I had on hand where to light of spine, and the masking tape nock kept walking around, so...

    I was wondering if owners of Bernadini Nilo and/or Luxor riser could tell me the amount of deflex of them (If deflex is defined as the distance between the plane of the pressure point of the grip and the one of the dovetail)? I would like to compare the geometry to the one of my Best Archery...

    Its generally agreed that reflex risers are less stable(people shoot them less accurately) then deflex risers. And this is generally considered to be true regardless of brace height. Ive never seen someone prove this with tests but it seems to be universally experienced with hand on shooting and...

    Hi, and thanks for the add. I started out with a recurve that I was told was to small for me, so I weighed the options and decided to build a bow since most of my friends have. I made a bamboo backed hickory reflex deflex. Now that I have been tillering, when I put a string to further my process...

    I am thinking about getting myself a dedicated target bow and I like deflexed riser. Does anyone know what riser has the most? Also anyone have any experience with carbon risers? My hands don't like the cold anymore and a carbon I would think would be much warmer than metal. Thanks, Chris

    Does anyone consider a deflex riser better? More pointable or accurate. I don't see many bowyers building deflex risers. Is is because useable draw length is lost with a deflex riser?

    I have always assumed that defex risers would inheritedly shoot better than a grip inline with the pivot of the limbs. Yet, I am assuming. It seems that it would be more pointable rather than holding up a riser at your target. Is this true, or have I assumed wrong. I don't know. My present bows...

    I read here that to measure the R/D on an ILF riser its the limb pivot points to the bottom of the grip. I think this is how Blacky shows it on his site. So how do you measure a bolt down riser? If it's from the ends of the riser then every BD bow has tons more deflex than an ILF bow. Same if...

    I was reading a thread on another forum, about the benefits of deflex in your riser, that Sid had weighed in on this is taken out of context but you will get the gist "we increased deflex and increased speed, we also increased vertical stability as well as smoothness. the grip position adjusted...

    I have a question about the Deflex measurement and its affect on bow performance. Also, how does the limb pad angle play into this as well? Some bows have obvious deflex, like Habu and Blackwidow. The PSE X-Appeal looks as if it has a gread deal of Deflex, however, I am not sure that is the...
