    Just noticed that one of my recurve limbs have a nasty crack (!) They are long limbs which on a 25” riser would make a 70” Olympic bow. But I have been shooting them on a 19” riser. Should those long limbs be able to cope with being on a smaller riser? They are 40lbs @ 28” but weighed wotf...

    I've noticed over the years a few posts here and elsewhere in reference to what the draw weight would be with BlackMax/BlackMax 2 limbs on longer risers. It's not as simple as calculating pounds lost by using a longer riser as the limb pocket angles are different on the typical Olympic style...

    After shooting target and 3d with traditional instinctive with 17-21 inch risers i switched to compound for a while and then again back and forth and now i want to try barebow with an olympic riser set up and most likely will try olympic style in the future. Therefore i want to purchase a high...

    Looking at a Gillo G2 riser. Before I buy just wanted to throw this question out. I warfed a bb and put some Tradtech black max 2.0 medium limbs on. Love the way this bow shoots. Have shot some 3D's with it and plan to hunt with it. This is my first ilf bow and have never shot a longer 25"...

    So my oldest son, almost 9 years old, has expressed an interest in trying an Olympic style recurve. I have zero experience in this portion of archery. He has excellent form for his age and averages in the mid-240s on the NFAA blue face at 10 yds with his 67" Damon Howatt Ventura. There's not...

    I decided to treat myself today and shoot my Olympic bow. I seldom get time due to the effort required to shoot a WA barebow. Form is fairly similar since I use an Olympic type form to shoot my barebow. Two things that were very noticeable: 1) The physical weight of the bow was noticeably...

    Check the trading blanket for the specs and photos of this bow. Very good condition, used one indoor season.

    Does a 25" Olympic riser without the long stabilizer balance differently than a dedicated 25" barebow riser ? Does an Olympic riser need a long stabilizer to balance decently? This is a question asked on another forum with some strange answers.

    If you could only have one bow but you wanted to use for BB, Hunting, and Olympic, what would you choose? Right now I'm considering the following: Gillo GQ 23" Gillo Super Hunter 19" DAS Dalaa 21" Hoyt Satori

    So I was just wondering, how many of you have tried the Olympic recurve? While most of my shooting has been with FITA/World Archery, I have only shot an Olympic recurve in a tournament once, and it was a benefit shoot. I have a full Olympic recurve but the FITA barebow takes a lot of time and I...

    Form Question ( another leading question . . . ) - Do you have a preference for the position of the head and/or neck ? ? Choose one only: the tortoise or the crane or the fox . . . 🏹 John

    Does anyone here shoot Olympic style archery. I mean the 70 meters. I am not on here much and was curious. I just bought an inexpensive set up to give it a go. Did not go nuts but 28" stab. and a decent sight. 25" riser and such. It will be 40#s at my 28" draw. My question is should I stick with...

    Although I made my nephew a rather nice longbow, following the completion of his 6 week beginners course, he wants to go down the Olympic recurve target route. He's now keen as mustard to get shooting after a few false starts and has joined his local club in Northern Ireland. So he needs a bow...

    I know that this was covered before but I didn't pay attention as I had no interest in shooting with a sight at the time.:) What do you guys suggest? Thanks, Bob

    I don't know if I titled this thread correctly so please be gentle with me if its not correct as I'm delving into new ground for me... If you were going to start 'playing' with an Olympic style recurve bow for shooting 3D, field and indoor(with zero previous experience with this style of bow) -...

    :sbrug: I mean the bare riser, not what's mounted on it. Can you do both with the same riser? I'm assuming limbs are basically the same, either ILF or specific to the riser.
