Just ordered the bow, looking forward to it.
Great material amazing quality feels nice and light
I was looking for a cheap bow with as close to 70" AMO as possible to get into archery with because I'm 6'1" with a 30" draw. The Wildcat plus 68" fit the bill. It has a smooth draw with no stacking at 30" and has a very nice grip shape which will fit large hands well. Overall it's a joy to shoot both off the shelf or an arrow rest, and its much smoother and easier to shoot than my 40 pound longbow. The riser is beautifully made and the fittings for a stabilizer, sight ect. are solid. The one weakness of the bow is in the Ragim bow tuning system, and the poor instructions about it. The limb pockets came slightly misaligned (which is fine, you are supposed to adjust them), but I could never get them properly aligned and it remains slightly miss-aligned with my adjustments having little effect.. The limb pocket now covers part of one of the allen key holes so I can no longer adjust it and it remains slightly missaligned permanently (hard to describe). Maybe it was just me, you may or may not have an issue with it. It still shoots well despite that.
Bow sizing based on archer's height for Olympic Recurve
Olympic Recurve bows typically range in overall size from 66" to 70". Below is a rough guideline for new archers getting started in the sport.
- 5'5" or shorter = 66" bow
- 5'6" to 5'9" = 68" bow
- 5'10" or taller = 70" bow
The Height of a modern Olympic Recurve bow is dictated by a combination of the riser size and the limb size. Combining long limbs with two different size risers will result in two different size bows. The typical Olympic riser size is either 23, 25" and 27".
Bow sizing based on archer's Draw Length for Traditional Takedown
Please note, traditional recurve draw length is typically shorter than compound. If transitioning always scale down at least half an inch for draw length.
- 5'5" or shorter = 60" - 62" bow
- 5'6" to 5'9" = 62" - 66" bow
- 5'10" or taller = 66" - 68" plus, bow
These are rough guidelines for new archers so they get the most out of their new traditional equipment. For some takedown bows limb length is not a choice. After some experience you may find you like longer or shorter limbs.
The Height of traditional takedown bows will often be dictated by a combination of the riser size and the limb size. A 58" bow for example can be made up of any combination of limb and riser size that creates an overall length of 58".
Traditional Takedown bows can come in sizes anywhere from 52" all the way up to 70". Bows that are longer in length are typically used in tournament situations while bows shorter in total length are used for hunting.
Age and Experience guideline
- 14 years old or younger = poundage should be the as their age. Example 12 years old should be shooting 12# bow.
- 18 to 14 years old = 16# to 20# depending on body build and height
- Adult: Beginner = under 20#, Intermediate 22# to 28#, Advanced with experience = 30# and up.
