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 all I can say for sure that it feels zippy.

Not a very good one in my opinion. I would like a pro vantage or Rambo/spectra.

That makes a 25 I think and for the money you can buy a pretty decent 25 inch riser for 150 bucks or so. Check em out on ebay used or Lancasters have abunch.

By the time you buy riser and pay to have it converted you will have less money in a decent riser like the Cartel.:cheers:

I saw a reflexed compound riser that was warf'd. It looked like a mutant bow. In this case it took a very large brace height to vertically stabilize the limbs. The high brace height probably had more to do with the limb pad angles since it was a more modern compound.

Web,

I too pondered the issue...for many years in fact, until I heard an interview from a maintenance person on NPR who claimed that inside resulted is less run away's.

I'll post some pretty pictures when I get it all together and maybe even cherry pick some groups. First impressions is squirly but It seems to like a 7 inch brace height and the the stacking suggested I was pulling an extra inch, and Im already at 32". If a straight riser is unforgiving of bad form, I guess I'll have to get better...:shooting:

The Sky riser is very straight. I had never noticed that before. Anyway, keep the posts coming. We don't learn as much when we only see projects at the end. This way we are seeing a bit of the thought process.

straight means you added 1.25 -2" to your draw? Limbs wanting to flex forward?
I do like the balance. Form needing to be better. Not in my opinion, especially with a long stab.

I can say that it doesn't need a stabilizer for balance. Shot "bare" the bow moves straight forward, and if held loose the top limb slowly drops away from from your head.

They are very shootable, just not very forgiving of any inputs. Long limbs will help you with this a lot.
Sam I would agree if it's Reflex, but straight is neutral. As far as I know, reflex or deflex are subject to hand pressure? Can you give us why it's "Not forgiving".
