Answer

 

On the 11 December 2013 World Archery published the following – The limb vibration damping devices in question are legal for the Recurve Bow Division.

 

These devices should not provide any additional aid in offering bowstring alignment.

 

The only stipulation is that the bowstring may not touch the damping device or devices when the bow is at its static resting brace height. That is, when the bow is strung, but not being short, the bowstring may not be in contact with the dampening device/s at brace height.
