Late in 2010, I switched to the Cartel Midas riser and I have been extremely happy with it ever since. In fact, I switched just 6 weeks before winning my spot to the Canada Winter Games. It also was my primary bow for the World Indoor Archery Championship in Las Vegas. As part of the being on Team Canada, I was required to have a duplicate bow for international competitions. So my sponsor, Cartel Doosung sent me the new version for 2012. Personally, once the indoor season is complete, I will be switching to the new 2012 Midas version as my primary bow.
Like Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives says “It’s Money” …
The new Cartel 2012 Midas Riser is being produced in cooperation with BowKorea, one of the bright new specialist manufacturers on the highly competitive Korean archery scene. The new 2012 model is available in both 23” and 25” version for both left-handed and right-handed archers and is machined out of AL7001 CNC aluminum. It weighs only 1.14kg for 23” or 1.2 kg for 25” version, and along with the original black, blue, red and silver they have added white and green. Constructed with holes throughout the body for the windiest days and maintains the natural wood handle.
Along with the dual options for your cushion plunger, this year’s model includes a highly detailed clicker extension and the innovative side-to-side adjustable limb pocket system. So now, not only can you adjust the tiller, the new limb pocket system allows you to adjust the actual limb pocket for adaptability to a wide variety of international limb fittings (ILF) limbs.

I’m saving up for a PSE X-Appeal riser myself but would be nice it wasn’t so expensive. 😦
Does this riser have a rear bushing for a stabilizer or barebow weight? If so are the threads the same as a regular stabilizer mount (5/16-24)?
yes, the Midas riser does have a rear bushing for a stabilizer or a weight. Unfortunately, I do not necessarily have the means of checking the thread size, that question would probably be better directed to the manufacturer or you can possibly see one in a shop and test it out yourself. Hope this helps.
