shoot through advantage?

826 9
Hey everyone I see a lot of talk about the shoot through riser systems on Hoyts really help and I'm just wondering why and how. What does riser stiffness have to do with arrow flight and does it help in any other areas? thanks!

It seems to make a more consistant stronger shot imo. I also have a protec which is built to similar specs, and the pro-elite hands down feels better. My shots just seem to be better with it.

It keeps the riser from flexing as much obviously.

Just lowers the vertical bend in the riser when everything is under pressure. And I suppose the release of the string. Hold on, let me go ask my ProElite......

i thought it was mainly to eliminate any cam lean you had? if you have a cable gaurd you're gonna have cam lean... so i thought that's why they did this

cam lean is actually the limb twisting somewhat to cause the lean...you can get that out....

but man does you riser twist and freak out when you release

it increases the torsional stiffness (in the riser)

is it necessary, eh?

if you gave me a Vantage Elite, it wouldnt make a lick of difference id still shoot 270-280 on a good day (though im working on it)

Im sure the guys that are real paper punchers and 3D foam eaters can tell the difference.

the lateral stiffness it provides reduces flex of the riser and torque during the draw cycle and thru the shot, thus providing a more consistent reaction when the bow is shot, less tolerences equals more accuracy.

as far as the advantage goes... when you add consistency to a process that has many inconsistency's every little thing can make a big difference!

I think you are thinking of Martins shoot through cable system. These guys are talking about the shoot through riser that Hoyt has.
