    I did look at the Uukha riser, but unfortunately it's out of my price range at the moment. Maybe in the future when my scores can justify it!

    The Gillo G1 and Inno CXT are quite a bit cheaper, but very good risers (so I've heard [emoji846]). I'm hoping to pair it up with KG NX55 XL limbs to make a 74 inch bow, when I get up to my normal draw weight again.

    It's Win & Win and it's quality shows.
    That's useful to know, I have large hands so the thicker grip will be more comfortable

    Try one in your nearest archery shop. I have big hands and the CXT grip is perfect for me. The same grip can be put straight onto a AXT. They are available at certain shops for around 17 on their own.

    Have the "old" nano max 27" with 32,5" and I prefer it compared to my last hoyt

    I have 27" G1L and nano max 27" risers and KG nx55 limbs.

    They're very different risers in terms of feel and I can't make up my mind which I prefer. In fact it's difficult to describe how they feel different; I'd guess better, more experienced archers than me would call it feedback. There's about 200g weight saving in the w&w which is 200g you could put elsewhere. But there's something very solid, secure maybe, about the Gillo. Maybe a bit like a manual steering box Vs power steering? You can feel what your old car's mechanicals are doing whereas a new car's PAS is very 'black box'. But, again, this is very subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that.

    I'm not mad keen on either stock grip: seems a little low for me and end up heeling them. I've built up the Gillo grip which helps. Personal, though, I realise. And I think there are plenty of options anyway.

    Can't hit the proverbial barn door at the moment but the G1-KG combo took me to a couple of 1100+ York scores last year in practice.

    Interesting what you say about 74" bow with KG XL limbs; when I went to KG, Keith suggested that the 27" riser concept is flawed and that I'd be better off with a 25" riser and some of his XL limbs. When a bowyer of 50odd years says something like that, you take note! If I had the time and the cash, I'd love to try two 72" bows with the different combinations. There's a bit of reading to be done about bow length, geometry, speed etc. and I reckon Del (the cat) is probably your best man on here for a explanation. The KG limbs are excellent and were chronographed at the same speed as a pair of 2# heavier Samick Masters Max (the older Max which I understand was manufactured pre MK days???) and lots smoother to draw. (Again, subjective.)

    The 72" bow seems a lot more stable to me at over 32" draw but I was getting some great coaching at the time I changed from 70" so I realise it might have been form-related or a combination of both. So maybe at 33"+ draw 74" might be a golden bullet but I'm sure I've read somewhere that they get a bit slushy and slow (can anyone help with a reference here?) which if you're shooting a skipole, isn't going to help you out to 100yds.

    You're welcome try mine if you're northernish and you'll need your own arrows 😋.
