Default Favorite riser for Border ILF hex 7 limbs?

Hi All, I have a 2 sets of Border Hex 7 limbs that can be set up for draw weights on both sides of 50#, depending on the riser length and limb bolt settings.
Iím shooting one set on a DAS Gen I riser with DAS fittings. I like it just fine, but itís not the sweetest bow that I own.
For the second set of limbs, I think I am looking for a riser with more deflex and/or greater limb angle. But Iím curious what others with more experience think.
Any ILF Hex limb shooters out there that use a riser that they highly recommend?

You could go with a Lazarev, he builds them up to 29"


No lateral limb adjustment so if your limbs are really bent out of shape it won't be as efficient. Then again if your limbs are really bent you might need new limbs.

Any ILF will work. But which do you like?
My favorites are Morrison Phoenix. I like that he puts a pressure button low for of-the-shelf shooting. And his shelf is humped. The dovetails for the limbs are surrounded so that if you unstring the bow and the springs are loose, the limbs don't fall out.

The Hex 7 will show more change in draw weight based on riser than later Hex limbs.

I've run two sets of Hex 6's on everything from Black Bear warfs to Morrison wood risers to Hoyt Excels. My perception favors longer risers, but honestly that's likely because of the poundage drop for my old bones . That doesn't help much, other than what works for you may not be other's favorite. Try as many as you can. I'm surprised nobody has come up with an "exchange" offer on the LW Swap thread just to "test drive" riser and limb combos before you buy them and send them back to each other.

Why not just buy a Border ILF riser? After all, they are designed to compliment their hex limbs.

I know nothing of those limbs but a das tribute is a great riser matching your needs

I don't have 7s but for my 6.5 Satori and Black Wolf are the best. Actually Black Wolf is my favourite, Satori is a very close second.

I'd like to shoot some Hex 7s or Hex 9s on my Rossing Risers. Currently Hex 6s.

Don’t have a hex but a CV9 and I favor Morrison’s wood risers.

I have a Das Tribute and one of Borders ILF wood risers. The deflex, limb pad angle and grip throat are pretty much identical.

I'm waiting on a 21 Tempest. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

I have shot them on a Hoyt Satori riser. The limbs were made for the riser length. He was told that was best way to get as much efficiency from limbs as possible? Anyway they were well matched and the draw cycle was smooth IMO.
