LOL, it might.

It is call the Optimus.
Made by John's Custom Archery shop.
See link in my first post.

I've been looking for a slim line yet beefy no nonsense ILF riser for a while now. I think I've found it.

This one has all the right stuff to make it great for both hunting, and target shooting, but without any (for lack of a better word) gaudy look about it.

I did not know they made limbs heavy enough in the ILF for what you shoot?

If you are on FB, just PM him. He's pretty quick to reply.

Definitely hard to find, and fairly non existent anymore from the big manufacturers. Pretty much have to go with a custom for it.

Apparently the riser works, along with his Morrison limbs, judging by that huge Virginia 10-point he got as posted on his Facebook page. What limbs are you planning to use, Rick?

I'll be using my TradTech 68# carbon woods.
My Bigfoot SS limbs need some overhauling, and if I find the time to get that done I may switch over to them, but that'll likely be down the road a ways.

Guess that's the beauty of going to the ILF riser; now you can put any weight limbs you want with the ILF connections from any bowyer. And, evidently, they can be made quiet, but I know I've heard some Olympic rigs that sounded kind of like dropping a can full of bolts in a steel sink when shot.

ILF is just an adjustable limb attachment system, and once adjusted not really much different from any other.

I haven't found it hard at all to get them as quiet as any other recurve I have shot, but I have heard (and cringed) from the sound coming from those you mention.

Undue noise can quite often be directly related to brace height. Brace height being to low to be specific about it. I almost always shoot my recurves with a fairly high brace height (around 8.75"), and they "always get quieter there.

Another little tidbit to that is - via extensive testing, I have never found my bows to shoot any slower with the higher brace height. Quite the opposite really. Without exception, when I have found the brace height where the bow is the most tame & quietest on the shot, it has also been the fastest.
