Now thats just not fair....

Beautiful, one of a kind bows Nolz. That Bubinga and rosewood riser is incredible!

Pictures don't do it justice.I hunt with a Freddy Kruger A but I may have to use the camo a little (has limbs too)

Thanks

The risers themselves are 16" for an "A" and 20" for a "B".

An "A" riser will make a 56" bow with #1 limbs, 58" bow with #2 limbs and 60" bow with #3 limbs.

A "B" riser will make a 60" bow with #1 limbs (probably the most popular set up out there), 62" bow with #2 limbs and 64" bow with #3 limbs.

Some days I really like a B riser with #1 limbs at 60" and some days I really like an "A" riser with #3 limbs. A good argument for having several of them laying around.

Thanks for the clarification!!

I got to shoot a 60" B riser that the guys at the Bear booth lent to me at Baltimore.
It's the fist time I've ever shot a Bear take down and it definitely won't be the last.
The grip is spot on. Even with no silencers in the string it was quiet and free from shock and vibration.
I told myself I don't need any more bows, and I guess I don't, but I sure do want a Bear take down now!

Mike, everybody needs at least one more bow.

I wish we hadn't gone to that tent. I was doing pretty good not buying one but I don't know how long that will last now.

Yeah, and the cool thing about the Bear take down is that they make you look 15 pounds thinner in your hero photos!!
;)

Gonna go on and order one of the black maple risers to go along with my diamondwood risers. Having a hell of a time deciding between and "A" or a "B". I shot both outside quite a bit today and.... really like them both. Going to have to study on this a bit.
