DRYAD ILF Risers and Limbs

Early in 2009, Mike and Jason were introduced to ILF bows and immediately fell in love.  The ability to mix and match risers and limbs from multiple bowyers just made sense.  So with the urging of good friend Rusty Craine to help with a shoulder problem, the boys went to work on a longbow limb.

Taking the Orion limb as a baseline they began development, building and testing limbs.  After nearly six months of working weekends, they were ready to put the longbow limbs on the market.  Like the rest of the products in our line we look to build a high performance, high quality limb at a price that everybody can afford.  The Epic limb does that and more.  The Epic longbow limb has been joined by the Epic Recurve limb and the Epic Riser.

Introducing the Legend - ACS ILF limbs - Early in 2011 John Havard joined us at Dryad Bows.  John, Jason and Mike have joined forces utilizing Johns patented ACS limb design for ILF application.

  Offering the Legend-ACS LB, Legend-ACS LBX and Legend - ACS RC (static recurve) limbs.

After nearly 5 years in development by John Havard and a full year with Jason and me we finally have the new ACS recurve production ready.  We are offering it in both our new bolt-down Orion risers and ILF.

The limb is an all new design from the ground up.  It combines proprietary carbon (called Crazy John’s by the manufacturer) with our dirty bamboo core and a new carbon weave to produce a smooth, stable, and extremely fast limb.  Blacky tested the limbs at 198 feet per second, 9 gpp @ 29 inches AMO.

Offered in Short, Medium, Long and XL combined with 13, 15 or 17” risers our Orion can be configured from 54 to 64”.   The ILF limbs are compatible with all ILF risers.
