The next Epik advancement in the Hoyt Grand Prix Series
Once you experience the dead-on alignment and durability of Hoyt's Grand Prix Series risers, you will instantly understand why it is the most imitated system in recurve history. Hoyt invented the dovetail system more than 30 years ago and it was immediately adopted as the international system for recurve bows. In the three decades since, this system has been unsuccessfully imitated by companies the world over. Their efforts have proven one thing: no-one does it like Hoyt.
For 2017 we are proud to introduce the all-new Grand Prix Epik, built on the award-winning Earl Hoyt geometry. The Epik is engineered specifically to maximize balance and stability, without sacrificing the snappiness and responsiveness that recurve shooters appreciate. Available in 25in and 23in SHORT models, the Epik delivers a smooth shooting experience along with a full resume of new technologies and features.
New VertaTune Clicker System
For the first time ever, our proven VertaTune clicker system is available in our Grand Prix lineup, including its most recent upgrades. We have built upon the success of our VertaTune system through introducing a full 360 degrees for cushion plunger lock-down, by recessing a machined aluminum plate into the riser. We also increased thread depth for better engagement, ensuring the cushion plunger is securely locked in place in all settings. Each Epik series riser comes with 3 machined aluminum VertaTune clicker plates for a low, medium and high rest/plunger position, allowing for 6mm of overall adjustment based on your preference and setup.
New Collet-style Tiller Bolts
Our patented Pro Series tiller bolt gets an upgrade for 2017, and makes its way to the Grand Prix Series. This new design ensures that the tiller bolt remains centered in the pocket, in all conditions, by locking internally against the threads of the riser as the bolt is tightened. The result is ultimate accuracy and precise limb alignment.
Pro Series Limb Adjustment Dowels
Our revolutionary, patented Pro Series Limb Adjustment Dowels feature our standard left and right adjustability and now a new Independent Limb Tuning Technology which allows for micro adjustments to the limbs, ensuring they always stay centered and balanced throughout the draw cycle.

The basic principle of International fitting limbs and risers is for all items, regardless of manufacturer, to be interchangeable. However, due to the re-design of certain manufacturers products this is no longer the case.
A particular case in point is the current range of Hoyt risers where the pivot point has now been moved back in line with the dovetail location. This pivot point on most other bows is on the leading edge of the pocket. This has resulted in some cases of poor fitting and non-alignment of limbs and in extreme cases even breakage due to the increased strain on the limbs.
All manufacturers will make their limbs and risers to specifically suit their own brand. Whilst most limbs and risers from all manufacturers will fit together, there are subtle differences in tolerances and the way they locate. Some use the end of the limb pocket as the pivot whilst other use the Dovetail location. Some rate their limbs at lowest limb adjustment, some for mid position. These are just two examples.
On this basis you can still "mix and match" limbs and risers from different manufacturers, but we are advising caution.
