You can try this guy on ebay, he makes plates for older risers. You could message him to make sure it fits your particular risers. I hear is easy to deal with and the plates are well made.

Have fun Warfing!

So I got a little busy with hunting but with everything coming to an end Iíd like to get this going! Are the limb pocket angles acceptable to warf??

Did you shoot it with your Sage limbs? That will tell you better than anything if you like the way it shoots.

I can't tell if the angles are good, but if the Sage limbs fit, then Black Bear plates should do the trick to get it warfed. I have a couple of Hawkeye plates for a Black Bear that I don't need. I started making my own plates a bit ago.

The limb pockets were a bit wide for the limbs, Iím going to wrap them in electrical tape and try them out, but the angle seems okay.

if you can use a plastic protractor like you used in 4th grade, you can lay a straightedge from belly side of limb pad to the other one, then lay the protractor lightly over that, and measure the angle with the intersecting lines.
I bought a protractor for ? $3 at a store about 8 years ago.
15 to 22 degrees is the most popular range.
eyeballing it the angles look ? ok to me.
Nice looking riser, good grip, grip looks similar to a TD-3 or ProVantage or Proline.

So the sage limbs worked good on the angles but there is a lot of side to side play. Is this something that would be fixed with the ilf or do the limb pockets need to be snug? I assume it would but forgive my inexperience with the ilf system!

You can shim the sides of the limbs with carpet, leather, etc. the original rockers from the compound limbs can be attached as well so they center the limbs each time, and give you some adjustment.

This is great advice.

Also, warfing it to fit ILF limbs would fix this problem. The "dovetail" bushing on the limb serves the same purpose as the sides of the limb pocket in centering the limb. It also allows for rocker that gives tiller adjustment to the limbs, but that's not what you were asking.

PSE actually made a tournament recurve of that riser design in 81 and 82. It was called "Criterion". I have been told but cannot confirm that less than 200 of these were made. I have previously owned 2 of them. I know this doesn't help with your conversion but thought you might find it interesting. The limbs had rockers on them, same as their compound cousins.

Can you please take a picture of the limb pocket? Also, do you have the original rockers still?

If you still have the limb rockers, you can reuse them with the Sage limbs to keep them centered in the pockets:

(1) pry the rockers off of the limbs.
(2) cut off/ sand down the pegs.
(3) use adhesive foam (like command strips) to stick them on your Sage limbs.


Doing this will also let you remove them at a later date if you ever want to go full warf or switch the limbs to another bow.
