Right on. What do you think? Is it 70 or 72"? Have a stab on it? Are you shooting it regularly? I was hoping to run into someone with one and seeing if they would let me shoot it.

Shooting it as a 72” bow and loving it. I have shot it both with B.B. weight (WA Legal), and with a 10” stab with a 11 OZ dish. Shot a PB animal 14 target round at State of a 263 so pretty happy with it. If you come to Mechanicsburg you can shoot it.

I owned 2 Gillian G1 in 25” and then tried the WFX 25 a few years ago, the Gillo’s got sold. Great risers but the WFX just fit me better. I still have 2 WFX 25’s and now the WFX 27

I had one Gillo 25" that I didn't care for. And had Two 27" Gillo's that shot in the RU Class with the heavy weight. And they shot great.
When I went to STrad Class I switched to the WFX25 due to its mass weight and shooting off the shelf with the hump. Still have the WFX25 that's treated me well! And I have the WF27XO which I am currently shooting and it's shoots well! Can't tell you how it feels with it weighted up, but if bet it shoots just as well as the 27" Gillo.
The guys at C&D are great. Dewayne and Calvin can answer any question you have

Right on. I can't make the NFAA Field this year. Really, gonna miss not going. I feel super strong and my system is coming around really well. I shot Pluggers WF 25, it felt solid and love the inertia felt great. IMO, just what a NFAA Trad shooter would want. I hope to change my shooting schedule for next year and hope to bump into you then.

It is a great riser.

Anyone compared it to a Gillo G1?

It’s like everything, comes down to personal choice. They are both good risers and both work for most people.

is it worth the cost?
That’s a personal decision but I got rid of my 2 Gillos because the WFX fit me better. Shoot one and decide if it’s worth it. To me it’s a top quality specific design that works extremely well, small family business and made here.

For trad using the riser as a reference, I like the flat shelf on the Gillo compared to the hump or rounded shelf.

None of mine have the hump, you can get them without
