    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.

    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

    craftsmanship, quality the best. very handsome riser







    practicing a 18 meter fixed anchor gap. I'm no much of a gapper but the Texas Recurve Championship is 6/26. ya have to shoot a fixed anchor (3D shoot). I am not at my best judging distance and fixed anchor. that is OK I'll take lots fo arrows



    I tuned on the springy rest this morning. got the bow to vertical. limbs are Borders CXG Mediums 38#. arrow are cx predators 600 30" with 125gr field points. arrow flight is good. i'll have to shoot a few more ends to tell if my group is centered. the poorer shot you are them more arrows it takes to tune.

    Buej - sorry I am looking forward to your pictures.

    Brian - I just told Sid to select the woods. I am not to particular about wood but I do like the subtle contasts in the Black Douglas risers I have seen or shot. I much prefer a handsome riser to a pretty riser...if ya see what I mean.

    shooting the Black Douglas has that 1960's cozy feel to me, like going home again. some of todays alloy risers are cut so far past center they leave the arrow isolated in space. seems to make the string blur a sperate part of the aim. Black Douglas gets my string blur, power stroke (well if I get my elbow around) and arrow all warm and cozy. tight and tidy cuts the lefty/righty down for me. I shot my PB indoors score with a Warfed Black Bear riser (old compound riser converted to ILF). by feel when shooting they seem to have about the same amount of cut passed center. for me that is a good thing.

    OMG, Brian's is beautiful but yours is simply gorgeous! (IMO.) I'd better lock that credit card in a safe place (just bought a new pair of HEX-5 so...)

    In the future my HEX-5s may match with one of these.

    Congratulations to the both of you fellas.

    Elder.

    PS: I guess ballance is good enough to require just a relatively small weight. Is that right?
