- Quality anodized machined aluminum riser Review by Two Feathers
Quality Price Value
I originally intended to order the SF Forged Plus riser due to its glowing reviews and reputation, but ended up with a 25" Prestige FX because everyone apparently thought as I did and snatched up all the Forged Pluses before I could get my hands on one. Fortunately, I have thus far found no reason to regret my decision.
The Prestige is, to my knowledge, the lowest priced machined aluminum and anodized riser on the market - certainly the lowest priced one on Lancaster. As someone who is fairly concerned about durability, this was a huge draw. Research indicates this is a rebadged version of the mysteriously short-lived Samick Vision 2. No one seems to know why the Vision 2 died off, and decided to reincarnate itself as a "Raven" product but I have so far found no issues with the Prestige nor any reason to assume that it was due to an undisclosed design flaw as I previously feared.
This riser has all the various attachment points for stabilizers (upper, middle, and lower) and a sight, two threaded arrow rest/plunger mounting points, a clicker extender plate, etc. Fit and finish are excellent. My only minor complaint is that the lip around the grip screw is a tiny bit rough, but nothing a few seconds and a tiny bit of fine sandpaper can't take care of.
At a sub-$200, I can't see why this riser is not more popular. If you are looking for a quality mid-entry level riser, the Prestige definitely deserves some consideration.
