Picked this up in 35# based on a couple or online reviews. I will say it appears well made for the price point though the carbon fibre tape around the string bridges is a bit crude and there is a constant creaking that comes from the tips that I assumed is the leather coverings. Another important item is the poundage is rated for full draw on these bows, not 28”. This is listed on their website and in the literature so the 35# I got was <30# at 28. The arrow pass is also a bit wide at 29mm on mine which is wider than a 100# war bow I have. Still a decent bow but I feel if you’re starting go for a Flint and if you want to take the next step spend a little extra go to something like a Bogar bow.
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 due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 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.
