HI all, I've got a pair of these Martin risers but I can't seem to figure out what they are. No serial numbers and Martin customer service doesn't want anything to do with me. I can take more photos if no one can ID just from this one:


The riser is 16.5 inches long.

yeah all the MFGs frown on those "stripped bare" risers. most are assumed to be "lunchbox specials" or otherwise "unauthorized" production. they might be warped a little off-spec that got warped in the anodize process, or "Lost" in shipping to and from the anodizer.
I had a Hoyt like that. eventually was able to get the missing parts, pockets bolts etc etc etc. but I had to do a lot of hard selling to get them to let me buy the parts and there were some cosmetic ones that I could not get.

e-mail your pix to Larry Hatfield (member here) and he can fill you in, IF it came from the recurve division, aka the old Damon Howatt plant.)

Thanks so much for your help, guys. I've got a "factory reject" Apex 8 with Sam Dunham right now so I think I've had my fill of rehabbing these things - it IS a big undertaking. Once I get the riser model I'll post it here and I'm sure you'll see them up for sale.

Aren't those risers designed for wax to be shoved into the bottom under the grip?
