Nice Bow, not best choice for me after all Review by attatt

Quality
Price

I shot all the bows I could get my hands on in this price range. This riser with the carbon 720 limbs was the best one for me. The bow has a great feel, very little vibration, nice speed at my draw weight #36, and I shoot it straight with very little tuning.
This bow does not accept ILF limbs. You must buy Hoyt Formula series limbs. Not a problem on one hand because I chose the proper draw weight and I am old enough that I know this weight will be right for me for a very long time.
On the negative side, when I realized I would like to have lower weight limbs to allow me to shoot while recovering from a shoulder injury or to work on form issues with less draw weight, I realized that purchasing other limbs can be cost prohibitive. The cheapest Formula Series limbs are still pretty expensive. It would have been nice to be able to buy used ILF limbs.
I have also realized I prefer to shoot Barebow style. This bow accepts weights in several places instead of stabilizer, but it is not as tunable from a sheer mass perspective as a Gillo riser which is not much more expensive. The Gillo riser is ILF compatible, so if I wanted to shoot NTS style with stabilizers and a sight I would have no problem adjusting, and I could use any ILF limbs.

So, no major problems. I really like this bow. It just isn't as flexible as I would have liked in the long run.

I have also had a number of competitive archers tell me that Hoyt limbs are lower quality than some others. If I determined that the Formula Series limbs are not up to my standards, I would have no recourse. I am stuck with Hoyt limbs with this riser.

Great riser Review by MikeB

got this a few days ago and it's a great riser, the only problem was that i got a lefty arrow rest on my tool kit but that's a minor issue, i use this riser with formula carbon 720 limbs and it's a perfect combination.

Not to high of a price And great bow!Good for a olympic trainer but for entering the olympics you should go for a formula hpx and the formula F7 limbs.

IMPRESSIVE Review by OLD archer
Price
Value
Quality

Uniquely well made and in it’s lower price range very impressive handles well with lower weighted limbs and better with carbon, very light in the hand and very directional I found even longer yardage to be just as consistent as up front and personal .
For the price, very impressive indeed.
If I was Hoyt I wouldn’t make too many of these.

Please note that Hoyt products these days seem inconsistent at best as far as quality goes and can sometimes be compared to the change in weather.
This review was solely based on the particular riser that we received
