Is my bow past-parallel?


Here is an easy way to tell if your bow is past parallel at rest.  Below are photos of two different bows. Putting a piece of paper up to the limb with one edge of the paper parallel with the string, makes it easy to see the angle of the limb. The picture on the left is of bow that is not quite parallel as you can see by the yellow line. The picture on the right is of a bow that is definitely past parallel. We do not have any adapter at this time that will work on a bow with past parallel limbs like the bow pictured here on the right.
