This is a very nicely finished Riser, you wouldn't think it's a carbon riser and I have had people ask me if it is aluminimum. The Red is very much fire engine red. The handle is ruberised and is very confortable. Its hard enough to feel the weight of the riser, but soft enough to not hurt after three hours of shooting. Its very confortable and for beginners it doesn't leave that bruise above your thumb like you do form club bows. The riser accomodates various attachments and that includes magnetic rests. The added bonus of being able to make adjustments to centre line while strung is good and adjustments to the tiller, which are win&win tillers are very easy to do. Vibration through the bow handle are minimised as compared to CNC, aluminium and magnesium bows I have practiced with. I've even had observing team members note that it is a very quiet bow and that the arrows leave te bow straight. Its a very easy bow to set up and a nice bow top hold. The bow does stand out and it's been worth the buy. Even getting compaible limbs and stabilisers from WNS are worth it as the kit is nicely matched.
