    Answered by the admin It is best to have the tapered laminations on the belly of the bow on the riser fadeouts. So the layup would be glass, 3 parallels, riser, taper and glass.

    Answered by the admin Good questions. Choose a bow weight that will be comfortable for you to shoot. 50# is a good average weight. If you are just shooting target, you can go lighter. If you want to hunt with your bow, keep in mind the minimum weight for your state. The draw length is measured. If you nock an arrow and draw your bow to a comfortable anchor point. measure from the base of the nock groove to the spot on your arrow where it meets the target side of your riser. That is your draw length. Add and inch to that measurement and that is normally your arrow length.
  4. How do you place the 4 lamination ? The taper and 2 parallels under riser and 1 parallel on top of riser ? Or 2 and 2 ? The instructional info pkg. for the 62" Hybrid only covers the 68" longbow and it is the same as I got back in the 90's just dvd instead of vcr. The blueprint is for the 62'.

    All of our designs use the traditional layup. The tapers are on the belly side on the fadeouts of the riser. We suggest the three parallels under the riser (back side) and the tapers, again, on the fadeouts on the belly side. You can also place two parallels under the riser and the other parallel and the taper on the fadeouts as well, as long as the taper is on the belly side.

  6. Regardless of how you configure the laminations,do you always need 4 laminations? Why does a recurve use less laminations than a longbow?

    Good question. The longbow and the recurve have different designs, different curvatures, and usually different lengths. They also have different widths. Because of this, the longbow will always have a thicker limb. The usual  wood core count for a longbow is three parallels and one taper. The exception is the youth longbow, one parallel and one taper. To give an example, the limb thickness for a 50# @ 62" hybrid longbow is .340" and the limb thickness for a 50# @ 60" @ 1.75" recurve is .268".
