dry bar soap on bushings makes a tight bushing slip right in.
Thank Matt Potter for this tip.

Felt like I had it forever. I'm hoping the bloom doesn't fall off this one because I am extremely happy with it right now. My other 19" riser is a Gillo Ghost and, even though I love that bow, I am much more consistent and accurate with this setup.
I agree, feels like a compound riser to me some.
Very happy with a shorter riser thus far

There is a retainer hex head in the stabilizer hole.

Awesome, thank you.
Just cut some arrows down, fletched and hot melted some inserts in. Going to try and figure out what I need for tune. These limbs gained some serious weight dropping to 19”. Got max 6s on the way thatll have me holding 51 lbs on this riser but If I can get some chest hair and get used to whatever the current ones are pulling I may just make this my elk bow. Kickin my butt so far after 3 or 4 shots.
With my compound I always was getting stuck at half draw or holding. My shot sequence is a bit faster with the recurve but Im not trying to set up for failure. Id fall apart if I had to hold these limbs back for more than 15-20 seconds
I got into my manual finally. Idk why I cant just pick those up from the start. Looks like me bringing my string in line with the machined lines was a good move. Has me running my rests a good ways out for centershot but I imagine that is due to being cut far past center

O man this thing is a sweet shooter. got my quiver on and some new limbsavers. Took out the brass weight and added a 4” stab with 6oz. Balances perfect.
Cut some shafts down to 31.5 and 261 grains total up front and Im just slightly weak at 45 yards. Should be perfect for lighted nocks and a wrap 570 grains total should be right at 600 finished. Need to cover the shelf in calfs hair or something and this sucker is ready for the woods. Point on is right at 47 yards.

Must be a string angle thing....
To keep proper alignment and hit down the center. I anchor up with nock in the crook of my mouth. I pull the nock/string into my face on expansion and that sucker bites my lip. Otherwise Im hitting left.
Aint the end of the world but I can see it potentially building a flinch. Clean release seems a little harder. I got to really run it through in my head of the string going through my fingers.

Im absolutely in love with this bow.
Got my 46# max 6s backed out to 2 turns from full on out. Got some 585 grain arrows w/ lighted nocks tuned best I can shoot. Not vane contact with this free flyte and freakin quiet as all get out at 6.75 brace .060 positive tiller. Finally stopped fighting nocking point and gave it a low wrist and its stacking arrows reminiscent of what the compound did at 48 yards.
Im going to rattle can the riser this weekend to let it know its home.

Looking forward to pics!

You can always get it hydrodipped too, but at least with rattle can you are done in a day.
Sounds like you made a pretty natural transition from compound to recurve... good on you!

Great looking bow.
I got the new max 6s coming in this coming week. Should be able to get similar weight maxed as Im getting now backed out. Going to hold off on paint til I figure on what limbs Im running
I have undertaken this whole trad endeavor on my own with only the forums and online friends to guide me. Yesterday I met up with a higher tier competitive shooter at a local range. I got some great advice on my gapping and a few other things. Got my hands on a 72 inch bow. And most of all I realized I want a plunger....
hoping yall can tell me what length beiter to order for the tribute?
This is absolutely going to be my hunting bow this year. I have not settled in on if Im going to shoot off the shelf, my nap, my free flyte or a combo with a plunger. Id just like to have that option.
Another thought.
Do any of y’all mark your riser for gaps?
Im shooting real awesome at my point on. But my gaps are real inconsistent as I have not found many references. Was thinking that a few scribed lines could give me some easy/repeatable references.

Also, I keep going back and forth on grip vs off the riser.
Im proving out to shoot a bit more consistent off the riser. So I wrapped a few compounds with hockey tape. Im thinking Id like to go with beaver tail instead.
Im just ignorant as to the method of securing it to my riser? Looks like in pics that folks thread some leather and lace up the front? The beaver tail pretty stout? Any videos that I can look to for some guidance?

If you're shooting with a tab, that bite might be coming from a tab that needs trimmed.

Your gaps will get much more consistent with methodical practice, just give it time. Try starting at 5 yards and shoot a group, then step back 5 yards and repeat, doing this until you reach your point-on.

If you have any aspirations to ever use your riser in competition, scribed lines are not permitted. Besides, why ruin the resale value of your riser? If you must have some sort of temporary reference, maybe apply a strip of masking tape and make your marks on that?

Barge cement is a rubbery good glue that might work well for sticking the beaver tail on your grip and Barge cement is not damaging the riser finish, can remove fairly easily.
