I have an old Browning Nomad compound bow that is unsafe to shoot due to the limbs being 30+ years old. Anyway, the riser is very well made; the limbs were held in place by a large bolt with an Allen head. Would it be possible to buy limbs for a recurve bows and adapt them to fit the riser?
The limbs on the compound are unsafe because you feel that 30 years old makes them unsafe or is there a visible problem-cracks, splits, glass separating? There are bows 50+ years that are still being shot, cars that old still on the road.
There is more to it than just bolting another limb onto a riser. The most critical is limb angle. This affects performance and safety.
I have an old Hoyt Rambo from the 80’s that still shoots great !! As for the conversion, do a search for Warf Bows !! There are a number of older compounds that make good trad conversions. I’m told the old Bear Whitetail is one of the best bows to “Warf” !!
