Spigarelli DMS riser
In 1989 in collaboration with Professor Dal Monte from CONI Sport Sciences Institute, Italian Olympic Archer Sante Spigarelli created one of the most innovative and futuristic risers ever built. The original DMS.
Professor Dal Monte's engineering knowledge, who among many other notable accomplishments, is the inventor of the lenticular disk wheel that granted the hour world record to Moser together with Sante Spigarelli's specific and practical knowledge towards the sport needs, conceived a riser with such unique stiffness and stability that it was granted a place at the Barcelona Sports Science Museum.
Several athletes have successfully used the DMS gaining great national and international placings and even achieving some world records. Initially used as a target recurve bow it was also appreciated by bare bow shooters until the 122mm rule introduction.
Meanwhile many of the most popular brands such as Hoyt, Win&Win and Greenhorn used the structural concepts of the DMS for their flagship products.
After an accurate restyling the DMS is finally ready to get back on the field for the joy of those who are not satisfied by owning a normal bow and who instead seek the maximum performance and design possible.
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.
