Hey Guys!
Just wanted to thank you again, I absolutely love my new WF19 riser. I haven't been able to put it down since I got it. Close to 500+ arrows already. It shoots so nice I almost want to take my plunger out of my WF25X and shot off the rest like with the 19. It has great balance, great grip, and great color (Bronze). Already built some GT Traditional XT's that fly amazing at 20 yds. Thank you so much for making Barebow Shooting such a great experience.

Good morning Cal!

I finally finished my new bow set up!!  I did a rough turning in my garage with a variety of arrows and all shot well.  This riser is very well made.  It sits dead still balanced perfectly in my hand.  I'm taking it to the range tomorrow for some serious shooting.  From what I've experienced so far, I think this may turn out to be the riser I've been searching for.  Pictures attached.  I'll let you folks know my results... ALOHA!    DAVE "Deep Woods"

Hi Cal!

Just to let you know the riser has arrived tonight.. all good.

Thank you so very much...looks fantastic and I'm sure it will shoot as well as it looks so I look forward to the morning.

Thank you for your help and the spare parts and wrench as well as set up.. The bow is now in its place of honor.. the Chinese believe that hanging a bow in a house is very good luck.. The calligraphy says "Black Dragon".. my Chinese name.

Once again thank you for a quality product and great service!                     

  Regards,         Peter Taylor (my Chinese name)

Hola mate,
Your riser has now made the trip from china to New Zealand.
Not had a chance to hunt with it yet other than a few rabbits but I thought you may like this picture.
I am very happy with the riser...bloody amazing 
Thanks guys.       Peter taylor.

Hi Dewayne

Martin Ottoson gave the riser for me two weeks ago in Sweden,So I shoot it ever since. I have only positive feedback of riser, and I can saythat Design has managed to brilliantly. Last weekend I shot WA 24 target fieldround in Riihimaki(Finland) I scoring 339 points with a few “stitch” mistakes.I am very pleased to riser and I will shoot all season with this riser.

Listed the riser features


  •          Brilliant balance with small extra weight.
  •          Very pleasant to aim and after release not twistin hand.
  •          No vibrations and very silence (with Uukha limbs…rare)
  •          Already more heavier riser than other brand of risers.
  •          Crip platform ( Can use old model Hoyt grips…theavailability is good)
  •          Limb alignment system is simple and simply thebest.(No washers and no eccentric parts)
  •          Tiller bolt system is simple and simply thebest.
  •          Perfect mate rials Aluminium and stainless steelwith nice finishing.
  •          Designed only for bare bow archers. 


  •          None
    Thank you very much and best regards

Mr. Martin,

Just wanted to let you know i received the riser in on Monday and set it up with some old SF Archery limbs I had on hand.  I wanted you to know how pleased I am with the riser.  The quality looks great and it has great balance.  Shot some arrow thru it and was blown away with how accurate I shot the bow.  Im not a great shot but I was shooting it very well and I am very impressed with the balance after the shot.  Thanks for all of your information and helping me get set up with an ILF riser this is awesome.  Looking forward to getting some different limbs down the road.  May have some tuning question s for you like brace height and limb tiller.  Do you have any recommendations on brace heigh and limb tiller.  Have a blessed day.
Thank you,
Rhett Palmer

Real awsome riser. Very proud that it is american made. I put das Long bow limbs on the riser shoots nice. I shoot with a low ancor point and your site window is  Perfect , you can really see the target clearly. Nice job what a riser for the money


CD archery has made a significant departure from conventional barebow design with the weight forward design strategy to create a balanced bow without stabilizers. I have not shot the riser so I cannot comment on the feel. It is clear, however, that it does not look like anything I have seen before. The fact that many top US barebow shooters are now using it says a lot. So why have the Italian barebow manufacturers missed this? Is it because most barebow risers are made to be used as Olympic style bows as well as barebows, or are barebow modifications of Olympic risers (for example the Zenit which comes in barebow and Olympic versions)? The Spigarelli 650 Club and Barebow are made for barebow. They look different, but not in the way that the WF bows differ. Without question, Vittorio Fragelli knows bow design (Bernardini, Gillo) but he did not come up with this significant new design element. It will be interesting to see how the WF design catches on. Will weight forward designs become the innovation of the barebow riser market, similar to extreme recurves in the limb market? Wil we start seeing the top European shooters moving to WF designs. It will be interesting to see. Credit goes to CD for building a riser from the ground up, to barebow requirements.
