Fantastic riser. Review by Yaztromo
Quality
Price
Value

I've been shooting this riser for roughly 9 months now, and it has been fantastic. The matte dark grey looks fantastic (I like to shoot with grey/black gear, as it minimizes visual distraction for me). The fit and finish is perfect -- if I had never seen a riser before and someone told me this was the best riser ever made, I'd be willing to believe them. Lots of well machined holes for accessories. No burrs anywhere to be found. The matte coating has taken a beating with nary a scratch.

As a bit of an aside, this last weekend I shot in a local double-720 tournament, sharing a butt with two other archers. I commented to one during practice who was also shooting this riser that he had great taste in risers, only to hear a voice behind me pipe up saying "You should have got red. Red is best". I looked behind me to see our clubs best recurve archer, a guy who has shot in the World Cup, using the same riser (but in red, naturally). This is a guy who is well beyond the intermediate level, and this is the riser he's shooting. That's good enough for me!

My first riser, so going on the opinions of those I shoot with Review by Michael J
Value
Quality
Price

After doing some research online I went with this riser as my first. It had a few more options that the competition at this price point. The riser looks good and the quality of construction is great -- no burs, paint looks good, machining looks finished. As for the included parts, I replaced the rest almost immediately but the plunger has been serving me well for 6 months. The old timers at my club were impressed with it and many had not seen it before. I'm happy I purchased it and expect it to last me many seasons until I have to upgrade.

Great riser, top value Review by Malcolm Bruce

This riser is a great unit and a big step up for me from my club style bow. Finish is supurb and it's ready to go right out of the box with limb adjustment and plunger factory set. You do need to double check the limb bolts are nice and tight. Also, don't even bother putting the SF supplied magnetic rest on as it fell apart on my bow's second outing-but it's an easy $10 fix. That minor issue aside, this is an awesome riser and excellent value for money.

Beautiful Riser, included plunger and rest only so so Review by ArcherDan
Value
Quality
Price

This riser, itself, exudes quality. The fit and finish are beautiful. The bolts and fittings hardware appear to be stainless and are devoid of any machining marks. The painted finish is flawless. The included plunger comes with several springs for tuning and is quite serviceable if not sexy. The included arrow rest is the worst aspect of this package. It doesn't lie flat on the bow and the adhesive only makes partial contact. The magnet side of the arm is too short to reach the magnet if the pivot is adjusted to center the arrow. It's going away. One bit of custom finishing was required. The limb bolts were very sharp around their circumference where the limb base contacts them when installed. After a few shots, my S/F limbs had "moons" starting to cut into finish of the limb pad bearing surface. I removed the limb bolts and chucked them into a drill press and dressed them up with #400 wet paper. They are now rounded and mirror smooth. Despite this, I would definitely buy this riser again. For me, a better rest is the only change. The riser itself is top notch.

Awesome bow, for a beginner it makes me shoot like I'm intermediate in the circle (not yellow all the time) but at least in the big circle.

The very best out there for the price Review by Matteo

You can absolutely not find a better bow for the money. The quality and finish rivals many higher end bows. I shoot this bow with the matching SF Premium Carbon limbs and SF Velocity Carbon sight with a SF Elite Carbon 30" stabilizer. It shoots like a dream, the only thing I would do is buy a better string. The dacron string stretches to much. But you can't complain by any means.

Bought the SF Forged Plus riser and the Winact Limbs that Lancaster had on sale. All I can say, is that I can't be happier! The finish on the riser is outstanding. The included plunger and arrow rest work perfectly. The grip is comfortable and the bow has good balance. I don't think you can buy a better riser for the money.

Awesome riser, great value Review by David Le

Like everyone said above, you can't get a better riser for the money. It's beautifully made, with a great finish and attention to detail. It gets envious looks from everyone else at the club, even from guys with risers costing three times as much.
In case you were wondering, yes it does come in a titanium colored matte grey, and an even darker "dark matte grey" though this seems to be on longterm back-order. The darker one is gorgeous, almost a deep charcoal grey.

What a great riser! Review by Topher
Quality

This is my first riser. However, I did more research than I am willing to admit. The finish is outstanding! I recieved the matte gray that almost has an olive color to it. I took it out and shot it within an hour of receiving the riser. The grip is fine for me because I do not have the largest hands (I shot a med. tab.). I can see how people may see the grip as a little small. Again however this can be corrected if needed.

I bought the Axiom limbs, large at 34# and was surprised how very smooth the draw was. I had no adjustments needed with the limb pickets.

Highly recommend this riser, if beginning or even if you been in the sport for a while.

I shoot this riser with the SF Premium Carbon limbs, and it works great. Minimal vibration throughout the bow, it has a good weight, and the included arrow rest is nice.

I got the gray riser, and am shooting with the axiom limbs. As of my first bow, it is shooting great. I haven't had any problems with it after around 10,000 arrows. This riser was at the top of our price range, and worth every cent. If only it had came with instructions, it couldn't have been better.

Great riser at competitive price Review by Macqueen

I did quite extensive research in this price range (all I could afford) and was absolutely delighted to finally pick this one. Its finish is superb, the pressure button, machining and alignment are great - it shoots well and looks good. I had a look at comparable products from Hoyt, Win-Win, Samick and so on but none of them seemed to offer the equivalent for the price. Buy with confidence.

Well spent Review by Geoside
Value
Quality
Price

I purchased this riser after comparing it to similar priced risers. I decided on this riser for the reasons that it has so many pluses.
It comes with a plunger and a magnetic arrow rest. Yes the rest hangs out if you shoot short arrows nothing a file can’t take care of. If you are a novice and want to get some wows and ooos from the Hoyt guys in your club this is the machine.
I purchased Apple 38 LBS long limbs. They popped right in and this precision machine was ready to launch arrows.
Some of the pluses are: Good finish all around including tapped holes galore. Fittings for stabilizers. Spot tapped out for clicker. It comes with a plunger and a magnetic arrow rest. It also has a tool kit for every hex head on the riser.
Negatives: Hmmm no instructions on how to set it up. Get one of your friendly club guys to help you set it up. Better have the Engineer who shoots the Hoyt Super Duper (all clubs have one or two of these guys) tune it for you. While he or she is helping you see who in your club makes bow strings and have a custom one made for you. It’s worth the 15 bucks they will ask for.

Love it Review by John G

Looks great, shoots great, feels great in the hand. Have yet to meet someone with this riser who regrets it. Since it includes a magnetic arrow rest and a plunger, the price is excellent for how much bow you receive. I'm shooting it with 32lb Kaya Stallion limbs. Take note that you can only adjust the weight UP by 10%, it comes at the factory default lowest poundage setting.

I'm happy Review by Eighty7

I've been using this riser for about 8 months now, it was part of my first bow. I haven't had any major issues with it. It shoots fantastic. The arrow rest and button plunger came with it I had some issues in the beginning with the arrow rest chewing up the vanes on my arrows but with some adjustment to the plunger I was able to get it tuned correctly.

My only issue with it is that the grip requires a wrap of some kind. I've found it to be slippery in my hand while at full draw.

simply fantastic Review by xfire

I shot this riser with W&Wact limbs (36lbs. / long). Out of the box, the riser is impressive. The finish was flawless, and all accessory holes were clean so all accessories (stabilizer, etc.) bolted on without problems. The limbs attached easily and did not require any adjustments for alignment. Overall, the riser / bow setup went smoothly. The only surprise, was that the length of the included arrow rest was slightly too long for the riser. I had to file the back edge of the arrow rest to get it to sit flush with the belly edge of the riser. The arrow rest worked fine, but I prefer a flush fit. For the money, this riser is an excellent buy.
