It’s a handle made by Carbofast, a small dutch company. The make many great items. The handle you refer to is made from carbon and foam and is therefore very light. It is however stable and strong. If you can by it and like the feel of it, buy it. I have shot these myself (not often, I shoot compound not recurve) and really like it. A number of members at our club have these. Greetings, Sander

One thing though .. Carbofast is Irish .. Dutch-Archery does seem to sell a lot of their products via internet (that’s how I got my CarboFast Quaddro rods which i LOVE!) :> Is anyone familiar with a the emerald star riser?

Carbofast is actually an Irish company. They do distribute extensively through the Netherlands. a. — Angus Duggan, Harlequin Inc, Seattle, WA 98109 | 40lb 68" Hoyt Elan, 30" http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/ajcd/archery/     | ACE 470, 30" Kudlacek Multirod http://www.tardis.ed.ac.uk/~ajcd/archery/      | AGF sight, 20 str DynaFlite

Tried it a couple of months ago with some Border XP10 Evolution limbs. I didn’t like it.  It’s light and fairly quiet, but it felt a bit "dead" to me despite the speed of the limbs.  The grip was too fat for my tastes, and the limbs felt heavier to draw in this riser than the other four risers I tried that day. Still, I’ve heard some good reports about it.  If you’re thinking of buying it, then give it a go and see if you like it.  Try as many risers and limbs as you can before you buy – it’s the only way to be sure you’re getting a bow that you will enjoy shooting. Good luck, John Kearney

Nope, it is absolutly dutch. The items are made in Ireland and Scotland, but the designs are dutch. The inventor is Chiel van Roy who owns the Dutch-Archery Shop. Sander

I can understand the "dead" description. All that carbon is going to damp the limb vibrations as much as a wodden handle would. I’d guess there wouldn’t be any need for limb savers on a carbon handle! I don’t see that a carbon handle has to be fatter than a metal one (although the ones I’ve seen have been), maybe some sort of composite handle could be made to get a better profile (carbon/aluminium anyone?). Did the limbs weigh up the same in the different handles, or was there an actual difference in draw weight due to the design? – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text ->Is anyone familiar with a the emerald star riser?

I have handled two carbon risers (the KG Paragon and the Emerald Star) and they seemed bulkier than most machined risers and many of the cast risers I have handled.  That having been said, I haven’t taken a tape measure to them.  A carbon/aluminium composite riser sounds interesting.  I expect someone out there has already pondered this, and maybe even played with the materials. >Did the limbs weigh up the same in the different handles, or was there >an actual difference in draw weight due to the design?

I don’t know if they weighed up the same, but they certainly felt heavier.  Perhaps I should have put them on the bow scale for curiosity’s sake. BTW, sorry for not replyinf sooner – I usually only check the ng’s on weekends. Cheers, John Kearney
