That's almost sacrilegious.Sylvan....My Gold Medalist was the same as the riser in the first pic, grey leaf camo...I popped the grip off mine, and put a thick buckskin grip on it, laced up the front, so that it had a soft, warm low wrist grip, and laced up with synthetic sinew, and a couple little glass Trade beads, it was very "Trad"................Jim
The limbs for the camo'd Talon that you posted a pic of have to be Xtra Shorts, the Talon is just a 23" Radian riser.....Regular length Shorts would make a 64" bow...This bow is marked as 62" AMO...I've never shot a Talon, but shot a few different sets of Short limbs on a 23" Radian riser, and for my draw length, figured it to be a real good bow for just about anything......Take care......JimThat's almost sacrilegious.
Did you happen to notice the weight on those limbs. If I'm not mistaken, those are extra-shorts. 65# is nothing to sneeze at.
Sounds like the Avalon, which was an Oly riser that developed cracks.Was there a mid 90's Hoyt called a Vixen or a very similar name?
I'm sure that was the name of the riser/bow I saw in a shop in Sydney Australia back then.
Apparently it was only made the one year but discontinued due to cracks appearing in the risers.
This discussion is really helpful. I'm glad to get the Hoyt hunting ILF bows straightened out, thanks. Its always been a little confusing for me, I and a couple of friends been trying to figure out the sequence and approximate dating for years.
Here is a listing of the Hoyt ILF risers, design dates, year of introduction.does anyone have a photo of an Elan.
