    So here are the differences as I know them for the TD4 also known as GM. Background: The Hoyt Gold Medalist also known as the TD4 came out in 1984 and lasted until about 2005. It is an ILF riser and has tiller adjustment. The riser is made from magnesium so it's very light. There were three...

    I have a Black Bear rizer & ILF conversion plates & a set of Hoyt Pro Medalist limbs. I'd like to convert the limbs to ILF BUT 3Rivers says their ILF Limb inserts won't fit. Where might I find some that will work? I have previously had these limbs mounted on the rizer using DIY flat plates...

    Guys, I have a Sky 23" TD riser with Medalist limbs. I am really not looking to convert it but would like to know if I can convert limbs to fit the riser. The riser has an exposed limb bolt closest to the rest and a thumb screw to the rear. Pictures included, any suggestions would...

    I have this old Hoyt Pro Medalist TD2 (I think) and need to put some ILF limbs on it. I should be able to do this with just some new limb bushings, right? Is there anywhere I can get these bushings that will fit the Hoyt thumbscrews other than 3Rivers? (They've priced them at $25 + a very steep...

    Hey guys. I traded Steve Long for an unknown riser many, many years ago that turned out to be a rare 23" Hoyt Gold Medalist riser. Somebody prior to Steve had put a nasty paint job on it, and hand painted fish on the riser. The riser placards were long gone, and the grip was wrong. I had it...

    Hello Folks Typically an Olympic FITA guy but I had a 1985 Hoyt Pro Medalist Compound that I purchased back in High School after saving every penny I made washing dishes at a local diner for minimum wage. Figuring I'd likely not use a 30+ year old compound again I decided to make up a Indoor...

    My Uncle gave me this bow on Monday. It's a Hoyt Medalist Pro 3pm. I think that means it is from the mid sixties. It is 70" long :o and 36# @28". But it feels and shoots like a bit more. It is in beautiful condition and has a bunch of Old stuff with it. A case, stabilizers, two bow squares...

    A friend and I were visiting on his new-old TD-3 H24 riser he has coming, and I asked him if he was going to shoot the square-butt-flat butt Pro Medalist type limbs, or try to find some of the Sky Joad Medalist limbs with rockers. I am quite sure I had a couple of the Sky Joad rigs that had...

    I have owned several PMs, one piece and takedowns. My favorite bows apart from my beloved Howard Hills. I have a nice pair of take-down limbs- square ends, so T/D2? Longs. But I haven't been able to find a long riser to mate with them. I see vintage compounds on the auction site going cheaply...

Came in a plastic case with one pair of 38# limbs but moulded to carry another set also. Also came with a small...

    Seen this on AT and on FB. It looks to have similar geometry to the Best Zenit which I really like. However, this includes limb adjustment. It was designed by Vittorio and Michelle Frangilli. Riser will be available in August....
