Hi Tradgangers!
I want to build a straight limbed semi-recurve bow. Question is, which radius should I draw for the form?

Greetings, Peter

I found that on my Glass, R-D bows they start to hold a recurve at about the 28" radius mark... There are a lot of variables though such as taper and such... Plus You are building a straight limb so things will be a little different... Hope this helps...

Thanx Shredd for the input.
The background for my question is, I would like to build a 50's recurve, which are more or less straight limbed, semi-recurves. So my idea is, no or less reflex and slight curves.
So, I'm open for all ideas!
