Default "My" NEW Hoyt Satori 21" Riser

Well... I guess I'm the first, huh? :^)

I opened the box to find a Hoyt case. It's the same one they send with all their new bows.



I opened the case; there was the riser, wrenches, manual, the rest, side plate modules and a stringer.

The finish on the riser was on par with my Dorado risers. It has, for lack of a better term, a chalky finish. Not the sleek and elegant finish like on the Titan and Morrison risers I've owned. Not saying it's a disappointment, it's just different than them. The riser seems very well made and heavy. I don't have a way to weigh it, but I'm sure it's heavier than my Morrison riser and the DAS and Titan risers I've owned. Of course it's 2" longer than them too.

In other words, the darn thing is built like a tank.

The wood grip feels nice. I'll have to shoot it some to find out for sure. It has a very narrow throat--which I like. I can always take the drum sander to it or order a Jager 2.0 down the road if need be.

The first thing I wanted to check was to see if my Hoyt quivers with the triangular stud would fit. Bummer... they won't fit, but I may be able to grind some stock off the stud to get it to work. These risers will take the hexagonal studs like all new Hoyt quivers.

Now... it's off the garage to put a string and set of limbs on it. Be back later...

The module rest system is really slick. It came with three spacers, the side plate and calf hair cover and shelf material. I only needed to use one spacer to get the tip of my .600 GoldTip Entrada's slightly outboard. If you get one of these risers, be mindful that the side plate appears to be made of a high impact plastic material. It could be pretty easy to strip if tightened too much.

I put a set of light medium Samick limbs (64" bow) on the riser, strung it up, set the tiller, tightened the setscrews and set the nocking point to 1/2" high. I put on my favored and always used sling, stepped back to about eight yards and let one go. I liked... I liked very much-dead and quiet. It feels sturdy and strong. I shot a few more and am quite impressed and very pleased so far.

Does this riser still use the old style tiller bolts or the new expanding collet-style tiller bolts that's on their new olympic risers?

Since I don't have a clue what you just asked me, I figured I'd take it apart and take a picture for you. I definitely does not have an expanding collet.




.... and the grip from the shooter side:
