Default Olympic Riser for Barebow / Traditional

Hi Board,

I'm na´ve in the area of all things related to archery. I would like to expand beyond my simple range shooting. I am curious if anyone could recommend an Olympic riser, well, a riser I could get a hold of in the States, for NFAA traditional / IBO Recurve Unaided / Fita Barebow shooting. I have a horizon, but would like to upgrade. I don't really mind the limb coming back, but perhaps I don't know any better.

Are their better balanced Olympic risers for barebow? I have seen pictures (on the internet) of people shooting the Hoyt GMX that way, and the Inno CXT. Will this work? The inno CXT looks like it has writing above the handle of the riser, would this eliminate it from the above competitions, if these could be considered markings? I would hate to buy something and then not be able to use it.

Thanks,

Steve

It should be easier for you as from June you will be allowed a 12" Stab, makes life much easier in giving you a lot more choice with risers.

Some risers do balance better than others and a lot depends on your budget, an ILF target riser works with 12" Stab a Barebow riser works even better with a 12" Stab.

Spigarelli Explorer II. You can get it from Lancaster for like 4oo and they have weights rest and clicker.

Have a great day,

If you're allowed to add lots of weights or use a stab then any riser will work. The spig explorer 2 that kasey mentioned IS really nice for the price.

Just add a BB weight or short stab for RU/NFAA Trad (after June).

Thanks for the fast replies. So, in theory, I could even use the one I have now, but I would need to figure out how to configure a stabilizer? That's an even better answer. That said, are there any risers illegal for these types of competitions, or are the ones I mentioned okay?

Thanks,

Steve

As said, you can add a stabiliser or weight to an Olympic recurve.

The other option is to buy a BB specific riser. They can be shot with weights in for barebow or without as an Olympic Recurve (maybe a little heavier than a normal one though).

Check out Alternative Sporting Services for the Spigarelli risers as their website seems to be down.

Nothing specifically illegal. Except for FITA the bow must fit through a 4.4" ring, so no stabilizers in that class. But you can shoot with a screw-in weight which is where I'd start anyways, you can get them from LAS for <$15.
