Hi, I realize some install the v bar block directly on the riser, some install it further out on the stabilizer.

What dictates the choices of these 2 positions?

Thx.

If you are new to recurve the only place for a v-bar is back in the store.

Ic....so I don't necessarily need to put an extension between the riser n v bar, I can just install the v bar on the riser if it works for me? Thx.

No kidding, I was actually thinking the same. What case are u using? I am using a 3 inch deep takedown carbine padded bag, so I can leave my plunger on.

Btw Grantmac, I did give up the idea of using my 19" Titan iii in target.

I got myself a 25" riser n medium limb set up..so now I am shopping for stabilizer mounting .

that is the correct way to do it. all an extension does is neutralise the backweight effect the side rods are supposed to assist with.

The extender has two functions depending on your requirements and how industry norms have dictated how V-bars are angled. They are relevant as “spacers” between your arm and “tum tum”, and in the case of low mass setups with high poundage, they move the mass balance forward without adding too much weight at the end of the long stabilizer.

I am going to put a quick disconnect v bar block on the riser, it's about 1/4 length of a extension rod by eye balling.

Will see if it feels right for me, thx~

You can hold the bow strait without v-bars. I'm all for the 3ft long rod only with a lighter weight. And yeah, It fits in the case better.

Got it~

I fix a single quick disconnect point on the riser, n will run :

Option 1: Vbar block on a 3 inch extension (so an added up 4 inches in front of the riser)

Option 2: Single rod

easy peazy, everythings still fit in the carbine bag and arrow tube, thx.

I'd say get the Mybo quick disconnect V-Bar mount you showed and only use the long rod for starters. That way, in the future when you're ready for the actual v-bars you're already good to go. That's what I did, except I have the discontinued Shibuya Ultima quick disconnect v-bar mount (looks a lot like the Mybo but it's adjustable).
