I got to shoot the riser last weekend. Mike had a pair of ILF longbow limbs on it. from looking at the rig you woulld not really think of an ILF bow. very nicely designed.
the sight window was cut passed center I think. it put the arrows right down the center line for me. I was shooting ligther weight target arrows. holding point on at the 40 yd elk 2D target i had a nice group right above the back in line with the KZ. I moved my aiming point to right under the chest. OH YA! Dryad has got a killer rig
I got to peek in ever so often during the design of this riser. The first concern was stiffness, espcially in the sight window area. to make a lot of ILF shooters happy the riser would need to be cut past center (at least to keep me happy). that is harder than you think. you just can't take material off the inside of the sight window. that would let the riser torque thsu head for a busted riser sooner or later.
A lot of r&d went into the riser . The next phase was cosmetic look of the riser. Jason is great at spacial visualazation. His goal was cearly to have all the structual integraty necessary and have a tradtional wooden riser look.
That was lots of wooden chips and CNC code. I had never thouht about the accuracy the CNC machine adds to the build and design of a riser till I got to watch the process. You get limbs and riser that are inline. Inline and every possible milligram of extra weight removed and balanced on the center. Ya know what ya get. efficiency and speed
