Traditional Only® Cairn Takedown Recurve LimbsItem Number: 868455X
One of the advantages of our Traditional Only® Cairn takedown recurve bow is that you can swap out different weight limbs for different situations. This makes it ideal for beginners who are trying to find their "sweet spot," as well as more experienced archers who use their bows in target shooting, bowhunting, and bowfishing.
Our quality Cairn limbs feature a maple core with black fiberglass facing and backing and reinforced limb tips to work with today's modern high performance strings.
Please note: The limbs for the two different models, the 62" and 54", are NOT interchangeable. These limbs are for the 62" model Cairn takedown only.
Available in weights of 25, 29, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 55# @28". Please specify.
Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.
Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. Click here to see our Bow Stringers. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
