is this an older bow ? or the new model?
Grant speaks good sense here, look at all the options before deciding but you will need a formula adapter for all but the Hoyt.Of the two Border. But don't forget MK and Uukha either.
There are 3 of our club members (in Tasmania) with Border limbs, and they all highly recommend them. They are by far the fastest limbs in the club, and exceedingly accurate. I would say though that they do need to be lined up straight, so if your Tiburon riser has no lateral adjustment, you might have problems. If it was me, I'd get the Hexs, and bin the riser if it's no good. Does Sid have Hex 7s in ILF yet? That would be awesome. The other thing about Border is that you will get very good personal advice for your specifics. You won't get that level of service from an NZ Hoyt dealer.Geeeez Grant. You're definitely not easy to impress. So there are now more options than just Border ? I thought I'd get a massive 'woop, woop' from you, for considering the Hex 6's.
There's no way I can try before I buy as there are no recurve/trad orientated stores in NZ. What do you guys reckon would be the best bet ?
I'm not sure how I feel about 'limb adapters'. This is one situation where more doesn't necessarily equal 'merrier' IMO. As a hunting/3D set-up I just want it to be as simple as possible. Personally I'm leaning towards the Hex 6's.
There's just one thing which concerns me which Sid explained to me briefly in an email. Apparently the Hoyt Dorado and Gamemaster risers aren't suitable for his super curved Hex limbs because they are often not 'straight' out of the factory. But the Hoyt Olympic risers are more often than not made straight. The Tiburon and Buffalo fall somewhere in the middle quality-wise, so I'm not sure whether my Tib. is closer to the straightness of the Olympic risers or the Gamemaster/Dorado's ?? Not to say that the Dorado/GM'sters are 'wonky'...
It feels and shoots great, and its better suited to hunting than a 25" target riser. Fingers crossed its okay ! Any advice/info ?
Best are supposed to be dead straight but they have no adjustment. There has been a lot of good stuff said on this forum about Bernardini Cobras, especially by the hunters. They do have lateral adjustment. I have 2 Bernardinis (not the Cobra though), and highly recommend them. I also have a PSE X Appeal, and that looks wicked. Just to wind you up with choices. As a matter of interest, are you barebow? Some risers need a little (or a lot) of help sitting vertically.What I'm thinking of *maybe* doing is just getting rid of the Tiburon and getting a Best Zenit riser. That way I can hunt with it, shoot 3D AND do Olympic shooting next year (when I've I'm happy enough with my form).
The Zenit's are all straight I've heard.
I reckon that might be the best thing to do ! I'm kinda over Hoyt. The only reason I still like their risers is mainly for the aesthetics. But performance is key.
