What is the diffference in the A and B riser for a Bear Takedown? And what is the difference in the limbs between the 1 and 3 choices? Their website gives no explanation.

If I want a right hand, 60", 50 lb, easy to shoot bow, what combo do I want and why?

Go with an A riser and a #3 limb. These are the longest limbs so they will be relatively smoother to draw.

When he designed his takedown bow Fred Bear decided to offer it with the three riser lengths and three limb lengths. This little bit of marketing genius allowed him to let his customers spec out the bow themselves and in essence have a custom bow for an off the shelf price. The magnesium risers also offered three different grip sizes.
