The latter, all my competition experience is gap shooting. Yep, it worked pretty well, but I do think that you had to execute everything correctly, you got punished for bad form. I think the Stolid bull Black Thunder I now have is more forgiving ... less 'twitchy'. Of course, I also have different limbs so take my comparison with a grain of salt. Unfortunately I don't have an ILF Hoyt riser similar to the HPX with which to test the Border limbs.IMHO not the best riser for bare bow.
Too fragile and not torsionally stable. I got feedback from a friend who nearly went crazy after switching from another riser to a HPX because he performed weak and had no clue what the reason was. He suffered nearly one year, thinking the whole time that he himself was the source of his problems. After switching back to a stiffer riser his grouping magically improved again.
These fragile risers work prefectly for olympic style but with stringwalking they are simply not stiff enough.
Tori, did you stringwalk with the HPX or did you shoot bowhunter style with fingers touching the arrow? The latter could work quite fine, even with a HPX.
^^ What Gary says. Limbsavers really help on this riser. You can also attach a screw-in flex ball or limb saver to the limb threads, that helps absorb some of the vibration.Sandy shoots 38 lbs no we were not in Yankton but will be in July this year for the NFAA Field and the IFAA World field. one thing would Limbsaver dampeners help ? we have them on the limbs just above the riser
^^ I am looking forward to meeting Sandy and hopefully she'll share a few of her secrets with me Amazing shooting.My wife doesn't string walk much but she holds the NFAA and IFAA world Field records with a HPX so I don't think I will get rid of mine anytime soon
