Picked this up in 30# on a recommendation from Sunny in the store and what a great bow to get you hooked on “horse bows”. Arrow pass is a reasonable size and after 1000+ shots the glued on grip and arrow pass have held up fine. Serving in the string is thin on mine so regular nocks don’t grab but Easton Vectors do and shoot like darts.
This bow is fun to shoot. Even at 45#, it is smooth to draw and the snappiness of bow allows for a faster arrow flight. Three finger shooting, mediterranean style, on this bow is fun. However, thumb draw shooting is even more fun.
This is a very good entry level bow for horse bow shooting. The design of the allows up to 32" draw with good stability.
It is a good investment to start on horse bow shooting. I sure don't regret it.
This bow is incredibly snappy. You can shoot three finger or thumb release, no problem. It's a bit tricky to string and you should use a stinger. I got it at 35# and shooting the same arrows as my 35# Ragim Taiga, it throws them much faster. The added sleeve is a nice touch.
The string requires large loops at the end, being a horse bow, so unless you can make them yourself or can find someone who does, I recommend getting an extra string or two at the same time.
I love the 7" brace height compared to the 5 3/4" brace of my Taiga. There is no need to wear an armguard with it.
This bow is my new favorite and is likely going to be my new bird hunting bow replacing the Taiga.
Special thanks to Armin Hirmer at Malta Archery for the excellent review and recommendation.
I ordered this bow last year and have loved it so far. It's lightweight and is super easy to handle. Shoots surprisingly well and on my first attempt I was rubbing arrows at 20 yards. Usually it takes a little while to learn a new bow but I had no problems with this one.
I have been doing archery for a long time. After seeing review from Armin Hirmer at Malta Archery, I felt comfortable with this purchase. Would have liked it in 30# at 28 but had to go with 35#. Canada Archery online was straight forward to deal with and delivery was timely. The bow is as advertised and is of very good quality. It shoots well using asiatic style release as well as mediterranean style. I bought a thumb ring at the same time. Learning to shoot this way is a process and no one should expect it to come over night with respect to how much your thumb can handle in the beginning. Otherwise, accuracy comes quickly.
