Yes.The angles are very important I believe too.In ease of tillering and performance reasons.Steeper angle ie.... harder to tiller/better material used but better for performance.

Drop the weird setback grip. Only cheap fiberglass bows have these.

The original bows from Cagaan Chad and Bajan Aguij have slightly less articulated bulbous grips that resemble those of CTs, which is absolutely no surprise. There is little grip reflex though.

Angular bends are better because the limb weighs less for the same reflex. Plus traditional core/horn joinery can only handle limited reflex in the bending sections.
