I look at the limbs where they leave the riser and draw a straight line between, then see where the grip is relative to this line. Most I see are about evenI guess I'm a little confused with your question. Most of the risers I see are deflex. I see relatively few reflex risers.
Using your definition, most of the risers I see are more of the deflex (right) variety, as opposed to the reflex variety (left).I look at the limbs where they leave the riser and draw a straight line between, then see where the grip is relative to this line. Most I see are about even
I agree, and it is a recurve. It's a Martin Saber.The one on the left would be very difficult to shoot with recurve limbs.
Wouldn't a solution be mounting the limbs on the back of the riser (i.e. Black Widow, which is ugly IMO) thus keeping the riser deflexed but putting the stresses more in line with the limbs?so if you imagine a line of compression directly between the two limb pockets.
an inline riser, can handle this, as the throat of the grip is where the loadings are centred. So this makes a column load. and all is good.
With a deflexed riser, these energies are outside the throat of the grip.
meaning that the riser has a hell of a stress running through it.
