Orange bow Pse riser and took the detent out of a pair of Samick ILF 32# and put locter pin in riser. Lime Green is Proline with short Samick Polaris limbs about 25#is about ready for pics to come

Those look neat. Great way to repurpose those old risers.

Good deal. One of our longstanding members, rwsbow, has been making rigs like those a long time. You guys should share notes. :)

He also goes by KYmoose and I've spent hours on the phone with Roger. He has made 100's and knows about almost every riser, which is good which is a pain in the ass. and which ones to stay away from.
