Description

Limbs | DRAKE Volta - ILF - Carbon / Foam - 20-40 lbs

The perfect limbs for ambitious archers who want to get more out of their bow! Made of fibreglass laminate with a core of high-quality foam and an additional layer of carbon, the DRAKE Volta ILF limbs extend their already excellent characteristics by a softer draw, a significantly better torsional stiffness and an even higher accuracy. The "secret" behind this is on the one hand the already mentioned foam core, which gives the limbs an enormous amount of comfort and on the other hand the additional layer of carbon, which gives the limbs more speed. All together this makes the Carbon / Foam Limbs the perfect limbs for advanced as well as for beginners who appreciate a bit more comfort. The classic matte black finish of the limbs matches both sporty centrepieces and traditional wooden grips. The discreet print rounds off the package visually.

The "ILF" in the name of the DRAKE Volta Foam limbs stands for the International Limb Fitting System - in short: ILF system - which identifies them as plug-in limbs and makes them universal. With the ILF system, the limbs are not screwed to the riser, but simply inserted into the corresponding holders. The holders are standardised and ensure that the limbs can be used with all ILF riser.

Notice:
The bow length and draw weight quoted refers to the use of limbs with a 25 inch riser. When using a shorter riser, the specified bow length is reduced accordingly and the draw weight increases by 2 lbs for every 2 inches of shorter bow length. E.g. using a 23 inch riser also results in a 2 inch shorter bow length and a draw weight increased by 2 lbs.

Hints on draw weight & bow length


Labelling of the limbs
The limbs of a bow are always marked with a label indicating not only the draw weight of the limbs but also the length of the handle or the length of the bow to which the draw weight refers. This label can look like the following:

25# @ 19" or
19H 25# 62" or 
25# @ 62" or also
62" / 25 lbs

If the length of the handle is not specified, a 25" handle is usually the basis for the draw weight specification. In the case of special bows, where the limbs are only suitable for the respective handle, the draw weight specification is naturally related to the corresponding handle.

Many limbs are also available in three various lengths - mostly called short, medium and long - allowing you to reach 66, 68 and 70" despite having the same handle.

Conversion of draw weight and bow length
Many limbs have universal mounting options, enabling them to be used on various handles of one manufacturer or multiple manufacturers. It should be noted, however, that the use of a shorter or longer handle results in a change in the bow length and the draw weight.

As a rule of thumb one can remember the following:
 

-2" handle length = -2" bow length & +1 lbs draw weight
or
+2" handle length = +2" bow length & -1 lbs draw weight
 

i.e.: If the handle is 2" shorter than the length to which the draw weight refers on the limbs, the bow is 2" shorter and the draw weight increases by approx. 1 lbs.

Example table for limbs with the draw weight specification for a 25" handle (e.g. 20# @ 25") and a bow length of 68". The table is incomplete and can be continued at will depending on the handle length.
