Re: Mixing recurve limbs and risers
- Good point. I should also add that it is important to
measure the poundage at each person's (i.e. father and
and son's) draw length. When I put the 20# limbs
(@28# on my son's longer riser) on my shorter riser,
the actual poundage at my shorter draw length of 26"
is 21#. If my arms were long enough, it would be 22#
-- the 2-lb difference you mention.

You should have each set of limbs weighed with each
riser length will change the draw weight. With 2"
variance in the
and the different limbs you should get that 2#
variation in the setups.
