Nika Progress Monolithic Carbon ILF Recurve LimbsItem Number: 816951X
When it comes to accuracy and stability carbon is king. Nika Progress carbon ILF (international limb fitting) recurve limbs feature a carbon construction that gives you high torsion stiffness for better accuracy and longer distances.
Made from a 55% blend of Monolithic carbon fiber and 45% resin, Progress limbs feature a progressive curve for extremely smooth shooting. You'll notice less vibration than other ILF recurve limbs, giving you increased accuracy and more comfort.
This unique carbon blend means Progress recurve limbs are water and weather resistant. The limbs will not expand or contract during hot or cold weather. You'll be able to shoot rain or shine, winter or summer. Just like the mailman, these limbs deliver!
Progress limbs are designed with the Curve profile, which stores more energy and gives you a 4% speed gain compared to other carbon limbs. This is an increase of approximately 8 fps (feet per second), equaling a 3# gain at 40#. The Curve profile gives your limbs a smooth draw, low vibration, greater speed, and longer shooting distances, even at lower poundages.
Elong technology gives your Progress limbs greater strength, meaning they will not twist. The blend of Monolithic carbon fiber and resin is compressed in metallic molds under high pressure and temperature. The weaved carbon and monolithic structure provides strength and durability far superior to laminated limbs. The limb ends are narrow with solid carbon tips for increased speed.
Nika Progress carbon recurve limbs are available in Medium (60" on a 17" riser) in pull weights of 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60# @ 28" draw (measured on a 17" DAS riser). Each limb comes with a protective sleeve for transport and storage.
Typically with ILF bows the weight will adjust up or down 2# for every 2" of riser length. For example, if a pair of limbs is 40# on a 17" riser, they will be 42# on a 15" riser or 38# on a 19" riser. This is standard for all ILF risers and limbs.
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" bow is roughly a 42 ½# @ 27" or 47 ½# @ 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).
