    I have used a lot of phenolic/micarta on tips but haven't used it on a riser. Also, as I look at these riser with black accents, are they micarta, dyed wood,dura-wood or what? Also, wood is the easiest to cut and shape but what works best on the composite materials? Just looking for ideas.

    I am trying to tune a plunger on a bow set up that is at most 1/16 past center. "Tuning for tens" starts with a hard plunger set up with the arrow at center shot. I have been tuning for bare shaft flight with a hard plunger but once I put a spring in I'm kind of lost as far as improving my...

    Does anyone know where to get these cut foam blocks for storing a riser? I can't remember if this one came with my bow case or my riser and I need a new one since my new 27" riser won't quite fit. Closest thing I've found is pick-a-part foam but it only comes in a three pack. Thanks, -Greg
