Hello,

Am I correct to say using an old compound riser for a traditional bow is a warf? I have been thinking of turning my1978 Darton SL-50 into a recurve for a long time.Here are a few questions. On my take down design I make the vertical center line in the middle of the throat of the grip. The middle of this riser looks to be just above the shelf, do you think I will even notice that when shooting or balancing limbs? My take down risers use a 21 degree pad and this looks to have a 15 degree pad, that will really open up the curve on my limb tips at brace wont it? Would I need to add a tip wedge on my next set to stiffen it back up, I know the combinations can be endless. This riser is 19 5/8” and I have been building 19” risers. What do you think?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

John -

You do understand this is a "Crossbow" forum don't you ?
Not much vertical bow stuff going on here.

Sounds like an interesting project in any case.
