    I really like the short metal ILF riser with longbow limbs combo. I have a 19” Tempest (as well as a 25” version for barebow) which I shoot with XXL Border Raptor longbow limbs, to make a 68” bow (my d/l is 30.5”). It’s a nice rig and shoots well, although as discussed on here previously, it...

    Has anyone sell a G10 grip for ILF risers? I thought something like what VZ does for revolvers and handguns would be pretty cool. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Dryad's light metal riser Idaho mountains above a mile high! In spike camp with what you can carry on your back, is no place for a 6# riser. Mike and Jason Westvang of Dryad Bows are Elk and Moose hunters. They know all too well from experience what it takes to hunt with what a bush plane...

    What options are there for aluminum risers under $350 that are 19"? I can see a couple cheaper options for 17" risers, and obviously lots of options for longer risers, but very few budget friendly 19" risers.

    So?...about a year ago I had my first Hex7 CH that was 60"/45#'s and seeing it loved stiffly spined heavy arrows?...I wound up getting Utopian like results using .350 spine CX Mayhem Hunter shafts cut too 29"s sporting 250gr screw-ins. Now?...while they proved just a touch too stiff to hit tune...

    I have owned and sold three Hoyt Buffalos and a Dorado in the past few weeks. I was able to get the noise level down on the Buffalos to a tolerable, to me, level and didn't even bother on the Dorado. I believe that the Dorado was as noisy a bow as I have ever used, including my old Bear...

    I suppose someone has posted a thread about lining the back side of a metal-riser grip in cold weather. maybe you just use a good glove. Like many of you I have a number of metal risers and I don't like the feel of metal vs wood, leather etc. Just wondering if anyone has come up with something...

    I currently have on loan the 25-inch Morrison Metal riser "Edge" model that has been making the rounds for review. Bob is seeking feedback on the riser. I will be at the 2017 Colorado High Country shoot next week if anyone there wants to see it and shoot it. Send me a private message or just...

    I know you shoot better with a longer bow. How come you never see, say a 21+ inch Morrison for sale? I see short ones all the time. Did my first sentence answer my question? Bowmania

    Went to the KY Tradfest this weekend and got the change to shoot Bob Morrisons 25" metal riser with 40# Max4 limbs, WOW what a nice bow. I had my DAS Tribute with Dryad ACS 45# limbs, we took turns with our bows shooting a lot of 10s, sunshine and mid 70s, good weekend, if you get a chance to...

    I've never seen one thread on Sky ILF. How come they seem to be a nice looking set up? Anyone out there shoot one? Bowmania

    I have a WF19 I like a lot, but I'm just not a huge fan of aluminum risers. I like the huge sight window of the WF19 so does anyone know who offers a riser cut the most past center and with the most generous sight window? I know Border's riser is cut 5/16" past center and looks to have a...

    Metal is better than wood but is Phenolic better than wood?-Sid? I have ordered a Phenolic Covert Hunter I am also asking Moose to help push a phenolic Bear TD. My assumption was the Phenolic would flex less than wood and ultimately be better performing and quieter. While reading the Tradtalk...

    Hi All, I was curious as to what types of finishes would work well for an aluminum riser, if I wanted a flat black? Strip and rattlecan? Would I use a regular black (which is kind of glossy), then go over with a satin clear? Automotive paint with a matte additive for the clear? Truck bed liner...

    I have been thinking about getting an ILF metal riser, and researching several. I have been looking at the Tradtech Titan III, the DAS Dalaa, and Bernardini Cobra/Mamba. Can anyone give some feedback on these, and what are some other risers I should check out? I will be using for hunting, and...

    Currently have a rcx 17 riser, but think I really I prefer a longer heavier riser. So was wondering among those who have shot 21" risers which ones can you suggest. I am considering the following: Bernardini cobra Das dalaa 21" Sky archery TDX 21" Morrison A Warf but which riser Hoyt...

    With a Morrison 19" Phoenix, what weight dryad longbow limbs will get me 42 lbs at 28" maxed out and backed off a half turn? Also, what length do these limbs need to be to optimize efficiency for a 28" draw?

    Hey guys aside from sandblasting (too cheap won't pay to have it done) what do you recommend to strip old paint off metal risers? Mine is a Hoyt Rambo.
