Introducing the world's first ever 27 inch recurve riser!
Top Italian archery equipment manufacturer Bernardini have added the new Luxor 27in to their stable of thoroughbred recurve risers which spans the full range of sizes from the 21 inch Cobra, 23 inch Nilo and 25in Nilo and Aladin models.
The Luxor 27in is designed for both Olympic and Barebow use and is particularly useful for archers with very long draw lengths. Finally, a 72in bow is a reality.
A 4 piece weight kit is available separately for simple barebow conversion.
Machined from a single bar of high tensile 6082T aluminium, the Luxor 27in is available in right handed models only and is finished with a full wood grip and accepts all International fitting limbs.
The Luxor is a very particular riser, with a design slightly less deflex than a standard riser, so the brace height may be a bit shorter than a conventional riser. It depends by the limbs, but our shooters usually use the same brace height they use with their 70" limbs on a 25" riser, or a bit more. Generally we recommend to start the set up with a BH of 9,5-10", but this measure may be changed.
The basic principle of International fitting limbs and risers is for all items, regardless of manufacturer, to be interchangeable. However, due to the re-design of certain manufacturers products this is no longer the case.
A particular case in point is the current range of Hoyt risers where the pivot point has now been moved back in line with the dovetail location. This pivot point on most other bows is on the leading edge of the pocket. This has resulted in some cases of poor fitting and non-alignment of limbs and in extreme cases even breakage due to the increased strain on the limbs.
All manufacturers will make their limbs and risers to specifically suit their own brand. Whilst most limbs and risers from all manufacturers will fit together, there are subtle differences in tolerances and the way they locate. Some use the end of the limb pocket as the pivot whilst other use the Dovetail location. Some rate their limbs at lowest limb adjustment, some for mid position. These are just two examples.
On this basis you can still "mix and match" limbs and risers from different manufacturers, but we are advising caution.
