    This set of limbs is marked 55# making a 56" bow, so Short limbs on a 15" riser. They are SHORT carbon/bamboo limbs dipped in Mathews Lost Camo and were top of the SKY line. They have been hunted with for two seasons so have some light scratches as to be expected. Very fast limbs. I weighed...

    Just wanted to pass along there is a Conquest w/limbs on eBay right now. They claim it is from Earl Hoyt's estate. I don't know if it's true, but as a long time Conquest owner myself, I thought I would mention it here in case someone is interested. (I have no affiliation with the seller...

    I let my dog out for a squirt last night around dusk, and just as we were heading in, I saw a dark shape moving towards me about 15 feet off the ground. It's an owl and a big one. He's locked into a steady dead-straight glide, wings flat as a ruler & outstretched a good 3 feet. Over me he soared...

    I recently dusted off my Sky Conquest to take pictures to sell it. I haven’t shot it at all in quite some time. I usually shoot my Border 21” or Tribute. When I do reach for a target riser, I grab my Best Moon. So what happened was I couldn’t find a proper length string for the Best Moon and...

    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...

    Anybody have any experience with this combo? Weight gain over a 17”? I know “standard” says around a pound an inch or so, but also know there are all kinds of variables... with limb pad angles, etc. I’ve had Aldo’s Morrison longbow limbs on the radar, but afraid they might be too stout...

    Does Jim scale their ILF limbs at bolts out, middle, or snugged down? Thanks
  8. Warfin' Wall
    I have an old Sky Hunter supreme riser. It was take down recurve that Earl Hoyt developed using a Hoyt Spectra compound Riser. It sounds like this riser is warf able. Is his riser milled like that Black Bear or do you use the plates ? Also who can do the work?

    Hey guys, Trying to find some info on a 21” Sky TDX, ILF riser. 1. Do marked limb weights run heavier than normal on this riser? 2. What is a fair price for this riser used in good condition. 3. Any other useful info on this riser? I have a chance to pick one up used but wanted to make...

    Hey Guys, What's everyone/anyone's thoughts on the RGS Carbon Limbs from Sky/Belcher Bows? I just got off the phone with Jim Belcher and he laughed when I told him I was looking for longbow limbs for my Satori Riser because he had literally just placed a few other identical orders. After...

    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 an older model 15" Sky riser, with removable limb pads. Mine has ilf pads. Were DAS pads ever available for this riser, and if so, does anyone have any laying around they might want to part with?

    looking for something under $500, which would be a little better in a 45# bow,for hunting and target

    I know that the spectre is cut further past center than the Rambo, but essentially the same riser. I read that the Sky Hunter is also the same? And then I saw this Hoyt Jr. Commanche for sale on the big auction and the riser looks also identical to the Rambo. So did this riser just get many...

    Spent some time and money talking with Jim, Sandra and Kimberly last to days. Great people to say the least. Ordered some short RGS carbon and bambo 45# limbs. Now the long wait begins. Also talked to Jim about his risers. He said that they had changed the limb pocket angles so that the...

    Is this company still trading? The reason I ask, I sent them an email about 3 months back about buying one of their ILF risers and I didn't receive a reply. Then I sent another a few days ago with much the same content and I haven't received a reply to that one yet either. I would assume if...
