Best Mercury

The Best Mercury is back!

The original Mercury riser was a limited edition prototype and was shelved after a few months. The new Mercury is a very different riser. The main changes are the grip which is similar to the old Hoyt Radian model and also a new lateral adjustment system for the limbs.

Straight out of the box you get a real sense of quality. The high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail in every riser shows just how special this is. You are not looking at a mass produced riser.

The Mercury is more than just a pretty face as the clever eccentric limb adjustment allows for changes in poundage between -3% and +10%. Also, the distance between the pivot point and the pressure button hole has been further reduced to help decrease the torque effect during the shot. In addition, the wood grip can be fixed in two different positions to adapt to varying hand sizes.

Mix and Match Warning

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.
