    Hoyt HP vs Traditional

    Hi there,
    I have used a Hoyt Formula HPX riser for 6 years now, and I'm thinking about changing for the new Faktor riser, not the HP version, but the traditional one, because it os supposed to be more stable, ence more forgiving.
    What do you think about this change? Is the stability worth the loss of speed I'm expecting? What other issues should I expect?
    Thank you all, have fun shooting!

    Let me put this another way: What kind of speed reduction do you anticipate? And do you need that speed?

    Hi, I've been told I will loose speed and my concern is the lost of sight marks at 70m, because I shoot a 38# bow.

    To my knowledge you lose about 4-5 fps. If you're on the lower side of the sight bar right now, you may have to pull in your sight extension bar a bit.

    My expectation is that if you are looking to pick up points because you seek "forgiveness", then you are going be disappointed.
