Hoyt Archery's famous Grand Prix ILF limb fitting system is designed for winning performance. The XAKT Recurve Bow delivers on that promise with exceptional speed, accuracy, and forgiveness.

The innovative pivot lock limb adjustment allows for lateral limb adjustments while the bow is fully strung, then locks down for solid dependability. The stainless steel tiller boots and tiller bolt locking screws ensure stability, consistency, and balance.

Earl Hoyt is the innovator of the widely used ILF system, and his special brand of archery geometry is still utilized today. The XAKT recurve bow is no exception, with dynamic flex control to ensure the limb pockets flex in tandem, allowing for consistent arrow flight.

Riser: A 25" solid metal riser, featuring three stabilizer bushings, as well as dual plunger bushings, and a removable clicker bar set-up. The ILF limb pockets allow you to pair your XAKT riser with any ILF compatible limbs. Features a flat,cut-past-center arrow shelf and Hoyt Pro Series high grip. Comes with a plastic elevated rest (not installed), with 1/8" and 1/16" thick padded adhesive backings to bring your elevated rest closer to center. Also comes with a removable clicker bar (not installed), installation hardware, and Allen wrenches for tuning the limb connection.

Limbs: Hoyt XAKT recurve limbs are smooth, fast, and accurate. Features a dual maple core with carbon, surrounded by fiberglass. Available in short (66" bow), medium (68" bow), and long (70" bow) in pull weights of 20# to 38# in 2# increments.

String: Made from 20 strands of quality 652 string material. The loops are served to give you lasting performance. There is also a .014 Halo center serving for abrasion resistance.

ILF stands for International Limb Fitting. The ILF system has been widely used since its development in the mid-1980s because of its capacity for fine-tuning, as well as its adaptability. You can swap out different pull weights, lengths, and styles of limbs on the riser quickly and easily due to the no-tools assembly. You can even mix and match sets of limbs and risers from different manufacturers, as long as they are ILF compatible.

Hoyt registration required for warranty service. You can register your product here.

Choose from a left or right handed bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.

Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. Click here to see our Bow Stringers. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).

Minimum Arrow Weight - Do not shoot an arrow weighing less than eight grains for every pound of peak draw weight. For example: If your bow's peak weight is 40 pounds at your 30" draw length, do not shoot an arrow weighing less than 320 grains total arrow weight (40# x 8 gpp = 320 grains). Shooting an arrow below eight grains per pound (gpp) can cause damage to your bow similar to dry firing and possible injury to the shooter or others nearby. Damage caused by shooting an arrow that is too light will damage the bow and will not be covered under warranty by 3Rivers Archery or bow manufacturer.
