    Flatter risers are always going to be trickier to use with a super recurve, but you should be ok with HexV. Holger does not recommend his risers for super recurves any longer.
    So yes, you'll need a lower bh than recommended. If there is a second button hole further away from you, use that. You'll need to make the arrow think it's got a decent amount of bh distance to do it's flexing as it leaves the string without contact. Have the limbs wound max out. That will help a harsh riser be kinder to the limbs, and the limbs are most efficient at that setting too.
    You might need to change spine. A straighter riser increases the pounds on your fingers (by effectively increasing your draw length) So firstly you need to weigh your bow at your draw length very accurately, (its almost certainly going to be higher than your old riser) and then I would err on the stiffer side of arrow choice.
    I'm sure I'll think of more things, but that's me for now

    Hi EVC. I don't think it's the string - I have used both 16 strand FF and 18 strand 8125 and the problem remains.

    Thanks Timid Toad for that excellent advice, I'm very grateful. I shall start re-tweaking.
