Yes- it is a nice shooter for well under 500$. Thanks for the kind words....I made a great choice after some research. If I was going to spend once cent more I'd save a little more and go with a McBroom, Omega, Ferguson, et. al. or one of the other many fine independent bowyers out there...
NOT with the Big Box brands you see at various suppliers. Those big label doods prices are way out line.
You can get full custom bows for under $600.00 and support the little guy. McBroom makes some seriously nice shooting uber-trad bows for under 500$ He makes the most subtly beautiful bows I've ever seen and they shoot soft. I like the String Follow bow with green glass....makes me drool like a huge stake on Vince's barby!
Oh- wait, wrong thread.
