TOTAL WEIGHT 5LB
Introducing the all new WF29XO, Weight Forward 29” Extreme Olympic Barebow riser from CD Archery. Nicknamed the “Beast”. Featuring the same weight forward design as all the previous CD Archery risers with more weight forward than the WF27XO. The top and bottom are similar in weight to help with shot harmonics but we’ve added 4oz to the bottom of the riser for help with balance. The weight is at 5 lb, which will keep the riser stable in the hand without adding additional weight. We include a weight system kit for the bottom of the riser, if needed, for individual customization. We also changed the limb pocket angle and moved the pocket back slightly to add more deflex compared to our WF25X and WF27XO risers. This riser will also aid the short draw people. You can use short or medium limbs and have the same string angle as any of the long draw shooters without losing performance; with awesome draw force curves.
Similar to the WF27XO, it has the same clicker, sight, and stabilizer mounting holes with the built in arrow rest option (the hump). Also still using Jager grips and ILF limb pockets. The body has been redesigned with improvements to hole locations, profile curves, and lightening pockets while still maintaining the classic CD Archery look.
Along with shooting videos of Sydney Phipps, and owners Dewayne Martin and Calvin Smock we are attaching the Tradlab testing results chart. It indicates; in the initial field testing at ETAR Denton Hill done by Cody Greenwood and Jeff Hale, that the limb weights are spot on with no loss in performance speed in the longer riser. TradLab will also follow up with more testing in the lab. You can find their test results on Instagram and Facebook at #tradlab.
With all these improvements, this is by far the most innovative and solid shooting barebow riser CD Archery has produced.
Cody Greenwood and TheTradLab has done more testing! TheCD Archery WF29XO with NSG.
Shorts versus NSG Longs:
Shorts: 8GPP 192 FPS
Long: 8GPP 190 FPS
"We now live in a world where short limbs are smooth."
We started this adventure into barebow innovation in the fall of 2014. As they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention!" We felt it was necessary to do what no one else would do - build a barebow riser right here in the USA.
So Calvin Smock and I, Dewayne Martin, knew we had a big advantage that most other manufacturers do not. We are serious archers that know exactly what we want. We know how a bow is supposed to feel and how it is supposed to shoot.
Calvin's son, Kevin Smock, had worked as a Product Designer for other companies as well as an archery company so we were able to show him exactly how we wanted this to be built. We wanted it to balance with no weights or stabilizers. He created the WF (weight forward) series. Kevin is also currently a knife maker and can be reached at www.smockknives.com.
We presented the prototype to the best barebow archers in the U.S. John Demmer III, Jennifer Stoner, Jared Neal, Alan Eagleton and Gary and Sandy McCain all were able to test it for at least a week. Their reports back to us were all considered. A few changes were made before first production.
We feel we have the ONLY choice for a Barebow riser out there today to meet the specifications of today's serious and competitive shooter. And for the not so serious, it will give you the confidence of shooting a proven winner.
If you choose to own this very innovative one of a kind product, we welcome your feedback!
