    The Black Douglas ILF wooden target riser

    Since I placed my order for a 23" Black Douglas Triple Carbon wooden ILF riser well before Borders put the riser in production, I have had time to think about exactly why Borders would bring out a wooden target riser? In a world that the archery community is interested in the "open wheeled formula one car" target risers, offering a wooden ILF target riser was a brave thing to do.

    Actually I knew the answer from the moment I sent Sid the email to put me on the list for the triple carbon. to stay with the car analogy



    If you had to ask the question then you might not understand the answer.

    i made the mistake on posting the arrival of my BD riser on another thread I started. I know that bkurpis (scotland) is setting up one and Buejeger (norway) has one on the way. (BTW Buejeger is a porfessional photographer) Brian and I have already exchange some experiences. I'd like to hear and see about others experience with their BD ILF risers (when ya get one. can't be too many of them out there yet)

    Maybe Sid will let us have our own cult thread

    I used to live almost exactly opposite the Morgan factory, Rusty. An interesting place to wander around.

    There only about half a dozen risers out there so far... But there are some 15 getting close to being ready to ship.

    Sid

    Rusty's riser looks superb. Four inches longer than mine and with a little bit more wood in it. What wood does Rusty have in his? I'm still waiting for a close up or two though It will be fun and interesting to see some of the other ones. Hopefully some of the happy owners will post photos here
