    The riser sports an internal carbon fiber skeleton frame with a fiberglass anchor for the alignment dowels and limb bolts. The internal frame is embedded into structural foam, that is molded into the shape of the riser and is wrapped  with a carbon fiber shell. Due to it's sophisticated manufacturing process, the riser weighs only nine ounces, but it is much stronger than a wood and glass riser at double the weight. Using carbon and foam for the riser not only enhances absorption of sound and vibration, but is also warm to the touch, especially in cold weather.

  • Testing Parameters:

    A force-draw curve was obtained from the reviewed bow, using a digital force gauge with a resolution of 0.1 lbs. Measured bow weight was rounded to the next half pound.
    The different arrow speeds were achieved with the bow shot from a shooting machine with a mechanical release. The string was pulled to 28 inches A.T.A. (formerly A.M.O.) which is 26-1/4 inches from the string to the deepest point of the grip.
    The (3) arrows for the speed testing had a weight of 9 grains per pound of measured (not stated) draw weight. Speed measurements were taken 3 feet in front of the back of the bow with two chronographs set up in a tandem configuration. Each arrow was shot a minimum of 6 times and overall achieved speeds were rounded to the next whole digit.
    The bow was set up with my standard 16 strand Fast-Flight string, that features one metal crimp-on nocking point locator but no other attachments, like silencers, kisser button, etc.
    Note: Numerous tests over the years showed that arrow speeds achieved with my finger release, using a clicker, run 5 fps lower on average, than the arrow speeds with a mechanical release.
