    With ILF one can choose different riser and limb lengths. From a performance perspective, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the following theoretical setups: 17" riser with long limbs. 21" riser with short limbs. both bows are 62". Same limb type. same pocket geometry. Both same...

    Risers may longer or shorter but the way you get actual length is measuring the inside limb bolt to limb bolt and add 5 inches/ 16 and 5 is 21 and short is 21x2=42 42+21=63 From the tips down to the string, nocks is a half standard length so subtract that inch and you get 62 AMO length The...

    I am heading to Lancaster Archery this weekend to pick up a set of Xcurve limbs. I want to put them on a 19" Tribute riser. I normally shoot and like 62" bows. I have a 29" draw. Which would be a better combination on a 19" riser, mediums or longs? I shoot long Dryad ACS RC limbs on my DAS 17"...

    Hello, Tradtalkers!.....To those that have knowledge of such a question, I'm looking for advice....With a 27 1/2" draw length, will a 68" Fox Triple Crown longbow be too long for my draw length, meaning, will I lose considerable performance from this bow at my draw length?...Thanks in advance...

    lets have a look at what can happen... for the sake of visualisation and setting the scene, two sets of bows. same risers. but two different limb designs but same limb lengths in this case all are longs and used within their design remit. 29-32" of draw one set of bows at 45lbs at 29" and the...

    I noticed the DAS longbow limbs come in 3 lengths. i bought a pair of Tradech Master longbow limbs a few years ago and there was only one length. Who offers multiple length ILF longbow limbs and if so, your opinions are welcomed.

    There is a southafrican mountain bike company that changes the distance between the backwheel axel and the pedal axel depending on the size of the bike. They advertise this like its something special. Makes you wonder what other non-changing parts are used to simplify production processes...

    I have never shot a longbow, so my question may be naive, but here we go, nevertheless. I have notices that the longbows I have seen for sale, whether at a shop or on-line, typically is about 64" long. I shoot and ILF and it is 70". Why aren't more longbows at least 70"? Alan

    I'm going to buy a new riser soon for a pair of long limbs that I have. I have no problems with my 17" and 21" risers. But what about a 15". I have a 27" draw. Should I stay with at least 17, or would the 15 be OK? I can trade for some mediums or shorts if need be. Thoughts?

    What would you class as short Meduim long draw lengths. I would say short is 26-27 meduim 28-29 long is 30-31 so that in my mind would mean that 24-25" = XS and 32-33 = extra long?

    Maybe this has been discussed on here before, but just in case it hasn't, here goes the question...What is the "Real World" differences in bow lengths, (as it pertains to most hunting situations, and 3-D and general all-round shooting), of what is considered a ''Hunting length" bow, say...

    Here's a question that has me puzzled. When a bowyer makes limbs or a bow at a certain weight for a shorter draw length, let's say 45#@25" is the force draw curve the same as if the bow were marked 51##28" or whatever that first limb would draw at 28. Or would it be entirely different peaking at...

    I couldnt find this information any where. The guys at lancaster just checked for me so i thought i would pass it along here. I only checked on lengths from .600-1.000 spine. if anyone has information on the other spines/lengths go ahead and post them. this was the length of the carbon shaft...

    :help::help::help: My new Border Hex5-H short limbs are supposed to arrive tomorrow. Boy am I excited! I want to try them on a DAS GenII 17" and a Proline WARF shortened to 20" and DAS'ed by Sam D. My question is: has anyone mounted a set on one of these risers and what string length should I...

    I need to make some strings for some new combinations, just woundering if some of the string makers out there knew the right length for the following (Using D-97): 17" Dalaa with med. Winex 17" Dalaa with short Border Hex5 I brace at about 7.5" Thanks Roger B.

    Just curious, does anyone ave a list of warf conversions, for different risers, and the resulting lengths? eg, what length is a Hoyt Dorado. a PSE xxx. etc. And I guess, do most conversions of, say Riser 'A' yield the same length, or is there some lee-way? thanks
