"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...
Form is everything.
What's traditional? I don't know, don't care and don't care to know.
