Anyone using the Hoyt Excel in 21", how dose it compare to say the Gamemaster & Dorado. I am looking to set up for barebow three under for 3D & field. Any pics of your set up and experiences with the riser, pros and cons.
Cheers ****....

The Excel is an ILF riser and the GM isn't. IMHO, that's enough to blow the GM out of the water, IF you're making a comparison. (There's nothing wrong with the GMs, but once you get used to the ILF weight adjustment feature, kinda hard to go back.)

My wife has been shooting one for about a year and the only issue I've had with it is that she won't let me use it as often as I'd like.

Viper1 out.

I have an Excel 23" riser that I paired up with Medium Sky recurve limbs, 66" in total, length. It's a super setup, very forgiving, super easy to tune, and with 57lbs limbs they'll put the hurt on anything I'm aiming at.

I have to admit I will probably look to pick up a Morrison Ilf for hunting and keep the Hoyt for target and 3d.

I have been shooting a 21" Excel with a set of Black Max Carbon limbs and it's just great.
The BM short limbs make for a 62" bow thats fast and handles very good. I'm using a springy rest and 400 carbons and getting 204 fps @ 54lbs.
One of the best buys out there for the money!
