    Hoyt - Floating Tiller Bolts - Will they fit a Hoyt Horizon?

    Just a thought on the new Hoyt - Floating Tiller Bolts,
    I gather they fit the new Hoyt Horizon Pro riser, but does anyone know if they fit the previous Hoyt Horizon riser?

    Yes they do. The Pro riser is exactly the same but with a fancier paint job and a wooden grip.

    Thanks for replying, wouldn't it be nice if the shops actually gave this information in there descriptions of the items. They would surely sell more. They do seem a good upgrade and a very nice idea.
    If anyone has fitted them recently it would be great to hear their experience.

    I borrowed a pair and tried them out on an SF forged + riser. I had to improvise some locking bolts but limbs felt secure as there is always a flat surface pressing over a larger surface area rather than just the edge of a regular rigid bolt. Others at the club commented that the bow seemed a lot quieter than before. Unfortunately I had to return them but must get round to buying a set for myself.

    Well after a few weekends shooting with these on I thought I would give my verdict.
    They look nice, but quite honestly I don't think they made any difference to my bow and set up. Last night I switched back to the standard bolts that came with my Horizon riser, I actually think the originals are quieter. Maybe when you think about they should be, they are after all rigid with no moving parts. The floating ones obviously move and maybe create noise/vibration.
    One thing I do think would have made me keep them on is if Hoyt had put a thread in them to allow a stabilizer fitting, one thing my Horizon lacks.
    This is just my opinion and they may well work better for other people or other bows.
