Nice wood shame about the fitments
(Posted on 08/02/2018)
As mentioned by others the wood/technowood combination sells this riser, but it is seriously let down by the quality of the ILF fittings. I also had to reinstall the tiller bolt fitment and now keep them from turning by using a well-known 2-part epoxy. I have also glued in the alignment screws as these easily work loose during use and I hav had to replace a couple lost to the course whilst out shooting. The biggest issue though is the grub screws that lock the tiller bolts in place. These easily work loose and like the alignment screws have been lost whilst out shooting. Replacements are easily available as these are a standard 6mm size but they don't last long! I have resorted to keeping the limbs in place by screwing the tiller bolts down on the limbs, using a teflon washer (1mm) between the limb and bolt cap and rubber washers of varying thickness to adjust the gap between riser and limb to allow for proper limb weight adjustment/tiller.
Paired with some Tradtech Black Max 2 carbon wood limbs it shoots like a dream and is now nice and quiet once the rattly bits have been glued of screwed down. Not really what I would expect from an ILF riser of this price though.

Needs a redesign
(Posted on 29/01/2018)
This is a very sweet shooting riser, very comfortable in the hand and predictable.

It is however not without its faults. As others have said the finish is quite soft and easily scratched, not ideal in a riser designed for field shooting where the odd encounter with a bramble is not uncommon. I have had to refinish mine in a tougher varnish to keep it looking good.

That however is not its main problem, for a wood riser this is at the high end of the ready made market at £250, and whilst the wood part of the riser (apart from the finish) is good, it is let down by low quality metal fitments. The tiller bolts and dovetails are not very high quality and have design problems. The tiller bolt stud is held into the captive thread in the riser by just a thread lock glue and on tightening the tiller locking screw on mine the stud turned in the riser, as the thread lock glue did not hold. I had to remove the studs from the riser, clean the threads on the stud and run a 6mm tap into the riser to clean its threads, before adding a better quality thread lock compound and reinstalling the studs. This seems to have sorted out the problem, but is work that I should not have had to do on a £250 wood riser. The riser would be better with a tiller bolt that incorporates the stud and with a locking screw on the rear of the riser, as used in most metal ILF risers. If you are willing to work round its faults as I did then this really is a great shooting riser, but really does need a radical redesign of the tiller bolt system. I did contact Merlin to see if there was any solution to the problem from their end, but with no luck.

P.S.

Sorry but I forgot something, the riser comes with no instructions no allen keys and not even a box, I was struck by this as I have just watched someone open a mybo riser which comes with everything, my Copperhead came wrapped in brown paper, come on its not a cheap riser so at least include a box, allen keys and instructions! Apart from that my Mybo limbs arrived and my calculations were correct, I am in the process of tuning the tiller etc which is new to me but seems to be going well, although a guide would have been nice!!

Lovely riser but complications arise !
(Posted on 08/07/2016)
So I bought the Red Techno wood riser with no regrets, mine also has some small scuff marks which I have convinced myself adds character. There are no instructions whatsoever, so if like me you are new to I.L.F. then you have some googling to do in order to adjust the tiller etc. As Timber Creek limbs are not yet available I decided to buy some Mybo carbon limbs so as to start using the riser, and herein lies a problem, I.L.F. limbs are set up for 25" Risers and this one is 17" so you will have to add draw weight, I contacted Merlin 3 times by email and ounce by phone, unfortunately I got 3 different answers and one email I am still waiting for a reply! I realize Merlin are busy but considering the amount of money spent in their store it would be nice to get a little more than a one line answer, I have been shooting for one year and have a great deal of questions yet to ask! So after some research it would seem that you add 1lb of draw weight per inch of reduction in riser size, so in order to get a 60inch bow at 38lb of draw you would order medium limbs at 30lb draw, at least I hope that is correct, otherwise I will have some very expensive canes for my wife's tomatoes which are already supported by all my home made arrows which failed to work properly, live and learn!

Excellent riser
(Posted on 06/07/2016)
Really nice riser the only reason for the 4 star rating is the finish on the tech wood at the bottom of the hand grip the finish looked like it has been scuffed it's only small but it's Brown in colour and not black so it draws your eye to it and at the top of the hand grip on the left side it looks like the finish has run a bit but other than those couple of blemishes it's a very nice riser sits in the hand loverly can't wait to get some limbs for it now so I can see how it shoots.
Now am I right in thinking that 70 limbs will give me a 62 bow with this riser?
