    Question Cartel Fantom Riser

    Hey folks, just wondering if anybody has had any experience with this riser?

    I'll soon be finishing my beginners course and soon be looking to buy my first bow, so I was thinking how I'd fare with this for the time being.

    IMO as long as the riser has 2 things then its a good riser.

    1 - Tiller Adjustment
    2 - Limb Alignment Adjustment

    Some cheap risers do not have this and I will always advise to avoid this.

    If the riser and limb combo is not straight, if you do not have the alignment adjustment then you will have to shoot with a bent bow.

    The Cartel Fantom appears to have limb alignment adjustment so I would say its worth checking out.

    However be aware that (as far as I know) this is the first attempt at a proper riser from Cartel so it may not be up to the quality we normally would expect.

    I believe they brought out the MIDAS a couple of years ago but it seemed to slip by the radar or was ignored. They obviously thought it was a good one as it's still on sale for 223.

    It looks very similar to the FANTOM, which seems to have had just a slight redesign from it and a cheaper price which has got to be good!
