Last week I switched to the new Cartel Midas riser and so far, I love every minute of it.
The Midas riser has a beautiful construction made of aluminum with anodized brushed metal look, mine is a red however they are also available in black, silver and blue.
The riser’s design is extremely forgiving since it is constructed with holes throughout the body to allow the wind to pass through easily and reduce wind interference to help with consistent shots. Although the riser’s weight is quite a bit heavier than my previous riser, the increased weight provides a counter balance to heavier limbs and reduces shoulder strain, especially for longer distances such as 70m.
The riser includes several great features including International Limbs Fittings (ILF), two options for the installation of your cushion or plunger and the ability to micro adjustment in/out and left/right of the tillers.
I believe the best feature is the natural wood handle, which above all else, should bring the Midas Riser to the top of anyone’s purchase list as it provides an amazing grip for all weather conditions including rain, heat and sweaty palms.
If you are looking for a high-end riser without the high-end price I recommend the Cartel Midas riser, you will not be disappointed.
