fantastic bow for the price.......consistant.
Very happy with this product, shoots great and accurate. Noticed a little hand shock when I first shot it, but after learning the ways of this bow I don't feel it all anymore. Highly recommend has great feel and the look is amazing!
I spent a bit of time watching and reading reviews of this bow over the last couple of months, before I bought it. It lives up to the reviews in nearly every aspect. Where it doesn't, it has to do with individual set up and preferences.
It took me an afternoon of shooting this bow to get it tuned to where I wanted it and I liked it.
That being said, it has a surprising amount of hand shock. I got the 35# version and I was shooting 600 spine 31' 100 grain tipped gold tips. Some of the hand shock may be attributed to the arrows, but most of it had to do with brace height. The factory height was far too low for me. It's set to industry standard of 28". If you're like me. 6'2" with a 35.5" draw, you're going to get a surprise if you aren't ready for it. The bow, literally, shot right out of my hands. Once I increased the brace height to 8" from 7.5" it reduced the shock considerably and to a comfortable level.
Many reviewers mention the hand shock with this bow, and they aren't wrong to mention it. But don't let that dissuade you. The bow shoots well, and when tuned, is fun and comfortable. Smooth draw, even to 31".
Recommended as an intermediate bow, easily.
Bought this in a 45lb for target and hunting. Comes with a very nice string and rest, but no strike plate.
This is a deflex/reflex design with a very smooth draw that stiffens out right around 28". I generally draw to 29, and this bow is very nice to that length, but stacks up very quickly at that point, as do most longbows.
Hand shock is virtually nil and it has a slightly longer than usual brace height of 7-7 1/2". The grip fits well and the esthetics are excellent. The satin finish is well done with no visible marks. Glue lines are excellent.
For the price and workmanship, I would put this bow above any of the Ragim line and unless you are into serious barebow competition, I personally don't think there's any reason to spend more.
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around is 2-4 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
