I am planning on putting together a new 64" ILF recurve setup, and am planning on using a 19" riser and long limbs.

For riser I am torn between Morrison Pheonix, DAS Tribute, Tradtech Titan 3, or a Hoyt Satori riser.

For limbs I am considering DAS Dalaa, Sky Archery (same as DALAA), or Hoyt Satori limbs.

I am currently shooting a win-win RCX 17 Riser with medium inno-ex prime limbs, but because my draw length is so long, I am in need of a bigger bow.

Any suggestions would be great, let me know your opinions or alternatives that have worked for you.

Thanks

What’s you DL?
31.5" I got a great deal on my other bow, and I didn't know that much about traditional shooting when I got it. Right now I am shooting 64lbs at my draw length.

I don't notice any stacking with these limbs but my release isn't always clean because of the string angle.

Add in the Gillo Ghost too. Perhaps XL limbs, I think sky make them.

Take a peek at the Tribe X3. Nice narrow grip, but it's a 17" riser. I have Trad Tech longbow limbs on it and absolutely love it. I also have the Tribe Halo riser, which also has a narrow compound-ish grip, but the X3 gets my vote.

I was thinking of the xl limbs from sky as well, and I could still use them with my 17" riser and make a 64" bow.

If you're thinking of Sky limbs contact Jim Belcher and tell him the size of your riser and how you want to set it up.

Buddy of mine that works at LAS has a really nice Titan III with a set of 40# TradTech RC Extreme long limbs on it and it's a sweet shooter. I just picked up a Titan III and RC Wood 45# mediums. Been tinkering with the indoor setup too much to put the Titan III together.

I shoot a 64. Useing a Optimus 19 with win and win black wolf limbs. Awesome set up. Have you thought of using your black wolf riser with a set of extra long limbs?

I am debating on getting extra long limbs. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to xl limbs? I already contacted Jim at sky archery and he can make them, just still debating if that's what I want to do.

I don't know if you would be better off with a longer riser with long limbs, or a slightly shorter riser with extra long limbs, or a longer riser with extra long limbs at your 31.5 draw length, but i'd be asking those questions if I were you. If Hank is available, you might talk with him, as I believe his draw length is really long like yours. Were you going to hunt with this outfit or target work? That may be another consideration. Good luck to you, and I hope you get something that fits you. Lunger

I've been shooting a Titan III for several years and I love it. My friend has a Satori and it is also good. I could see no reason to switch from the Titan though. On the higher price end a WF19 would be a good one too. Lots of Titans are around used.

I am going to use this for hunting. Looking to draw 60lbs. I have been having this great debate if I should get xl limbs or a 19" riser and long limbs. I would think the xl limbs may be smoother throughout the draw cycle with less stacking, but have not heard anything to support this theory.

For your draw length I sure wouldn't get a 19. If you ever want to go longer you have to find XL's. So I'd advise a Morrison 21 and I've shot all you mentioned.
