Riser | SPIDERBOWS Blizzard - ILF - 19-23 inch
A modern ILF riser for take down recurve bows with an elegant exterior, which manages to find the perfect balance between filigree shape and optimal weight, that is SPIDERBOWS Blizzard!
The riser is made of the latest generation of Teknowood. This high-strength, modern composite material, which has become indispensable in archery, brings even more torsional stiffness to the bow and gives the riser the natural and pleasant feel of wood. The look is determined by the two crescent-shaped elements, which are separated by a central strip of coloured Teknowood. The riser is framed by two 2mm thick micarta strips, which increase the weight and provide optimal stiffening of the riser. A combination that increases comfort when shooting and guarantees a convincing tactile experience.
ILF - Technology meets tradition!
SPIDERBOWS has rethought the ILF system and developed perhaps the best ILF attachment for the limbs available on the market. This is how high-quality, precise technology meets the tradition of a wooden centrepiece.
The ILF attachment with all its adjustment possibilities is housed in a solid metal block and forms a closed system. The lateral adjustment for throwing arm alignment, for example, is completely integrated in the metal block and thus avoids cracks in the riser, which can occur with the usual systems because the screw is located in the wooden centre piece. In addition, there are tiller screws, which have an additional ring and a movable head that optimally guides and fixes the limbs. Via the tiller, the bow can be optimally adjusted to personal needs and the draw weight of the bow can be adjusted by approx. ±3 lbs.
SPIDERBOWS ILF attachment has a little more to offer: Due to the requirements of the different rules and regulations of the various archery associations, the Tiller screw has been extended by an internal threaded pin, which serves as an additional locking device. This allows the Tiller screw to be locked in the desired position. If you want to avoid a complete change of position, you can fix the Tiller screw in the block by means of a clamping screw on the side.

Determination of the draw hand
The draw hand is the hand that pulls the string. This means that a right-hand bow is held in the left hand and pulled out with the right hand.
The determination of the personal draw hand has far less to do with whether one is left or right-hand than one might initially assume. Rather, it is a matter of determining the dominant eye. The dominant eye is used for targeting. This automatically results in the draw hand.
The term "dominant eye" refers to the eye the visual information of which superimposes everything. If a shooter would try to aim with the other eye, he would have to pinch the dominant eye.
There are two ways to determine the dominant eye: On the one hand, it is the eye that is generally preferred, for example when looking through the viewfinder of a camera, through the spyhole or similar situations. On the other hand, there is a small exercise with which the dominant eye can be determined beyond doubt:
- The arms are stretched out and with thumb and index fingers of both hands, a triangle is formed.
- The triangle is used to target a small target, such as a power socket or a cabinet knob. This object is focused.
- The hands are now slowly moved towards the face without the target being taken out of focus.
- The triangle of thumb and index fingers will automatically incline to one half of the face and the dominant eye will lie within it.
If eye and hand dominance do not match, the bow should still be selected according to eye dominance. The arms can easily be trained on the new draw hand, the eye cannot.
