DRYAD ILF Risers and Limbs

Introducing the NEW Legend ACS-RCTX limbs.

Legend RCTX

We are excited to announce that the Legend ACS-RCTX limb is now in full production.  The RCTX is an upgrade to the Legend ACS-RCT, the fiberglass has been removed and now features a proprietary carbon weave on the belly and back.  The finish is a textured gloss finish giving them an elegant and durable appearance. The limbs were designed for the serious target archer with superior torsional stability and great forgiveness at the back of the draw, making the limbs incredibly fast and accurate.

History: 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.

Epic - Taking the Orion limb as a baseline they began development, building and testing limbs.  After nearly six months of working weekends designing and testing, 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.

 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. The Legend ACS limbs have expanded to enclude the ACS-LB, ACS-RC, ACS-RCT and now the ACS-RCTX 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 a hardrock maple core produce a smooth, stable, and extremely fast limb.  Blacky tested the limbs at 198 feet per second, 9 gpp @ 28 inches AMO.

Offered in Medium, Long and XL combined with 13, 15, 17 or 19” risers our Epic can be configured from 56 to 66”.   The ILF limbs are compatible with all ILF risers.
