      Hello all,

      Brand new to Recurve here, and I want to pick up my first purchase. Following most people's recommendations, I want to go with an intermediate-advanced riser to avoid having to upgrade too soon. I am torn between the two and I was hoping you all could provide some input:

      Mybo Wave XR
      Mybo Wave XR 25" Recurve Riser

      W&W WInex 25"
      2021 Win & Win WINEX 25" ILF Recurve Riser

      Both seem quite comparable, and price difference is minimal. I like the overall look/design of the Mybo (detailed below), while I simply like the Winex for its color (white - which Mybo doesn't have), so I'm torn between the two.

      Also, for the design of the limb pockets, the Mybo has an open design (where the limbs are exposed entirely - which I like better), while the Winex has a "closed" design (where the limb inserts inside of it). Any idea if these designs impact the shooting at all (e.g. more/less vibration, more/less noise, etc)? I noticed most of the top-end risers all have a "closed" pocket design.

      So being that the above issues are simply aesthetics, I wanted another determining factor that would help me commit to one (better design/construction? stand-out features? experiences? reliability? etc.)

      Thank you!

      When you say "brand new to recurve", what specifically do you mean? Have you used other types of bow? Have you done some sort of introductory session on a recurve bow already or have you never picked one up/pulled one back? Are there any people who shoot or coach recurve in your area?

      Sometimes people come here wanting to spend $1000 on a setup when they've never touched a bow in real life - if that's also your case starting with a $100 wooden 3 piece takedown bow with a low draw weight, even though it won't be a "forever bow", is more likely to result in someone still shooting in a year. Many people struggle with the mass of a 2.6lb riser when they're new, but a wooden bow weighs less than half that which helps for developing good shooting form. Except for the limbs (which start much cheaper than ilf limbs), every component can be swapped between the wooden bow and an ILF bow later.
