HC came out with the " all-carbon" riser bow several years ago. They were very expensive, compared to the average bow of the day. I believe it was somewhere around 1996 or 97, but not sure. I haven' t heard much about the bow since it' s inception. So, either it wasn' t that great, or the cost precluded anyone buying it.

Having dealt with all carbon arrows, I worry somewhat about the tolerances of a carbon riser bow. Number one is, is it straight???? How does heat effect it??? (reason I question this, they' re not like arrows that aren' t stressed. Just being strung up is stressing the riser and I wonder how heat effects it).

I hope someone else here has or had one and can give firsthand experience.

i have been shooting a Carbon Lite Pro. for the last 3 years, and love it . the extra draw cam set on 28.5 inch draw at 58#and 84% letoff with a 310grain Epic shaft gives me 274 fps. have had no problems and shoots like a dream. the 2003 carbon bows do have brass inserts for sight, rest and stabilizer. have sold around 20-25 of the carbon bows and no problems. the four runner/extreme has a low brace height, the max extreme has a short (5 inch) sight window, the others do well. plus the price is down about $100.00. take a look, at 2.7lbs bare bow weight, you may like it. jim
