Richwood Archery/CSS Encore II OS-3.

The word "custom" is the most telling part of RichwoodArchery's Custom Shooting Systems (CSS) bows. You can customizenearly every feature of these bows. First, choose the length. I'lluse the Encore II as an example. It comes in axle-to-axle lengths of 33,35 and 37 inches. The bow assemblers at CSS use different length limbswith the same riser to achieve this range. The most popular size is 35inches, while the 37-inch model is the most stable and the 33 is themost portable.

Brace height also changes slightly with axle-to-axle length. The 33-inch bow has the lowest brace height (under 7.5 inches) and the 37-inch model has the highest brace
