I got a chance to shoot her at the Louisiana Traditional Bowmen North vs South shoot last weekend and she is wonderful. No other way to describe it. Thanks Daniel for the opportunity!

Faith arrived in the North Carolina mountains today. Just enough daylight left to put her together, check nock and brace height, try out a variety of arrows. At my 28.75" draw, 2016 XX75 with 125 grs. up front flew best. A mighty handsome bow. More to come.

I've adopted too many bows that needed a good home.

Welp,

my time with Hope is coming to an end. I am about to ship it out to the next person. I did not manage to kill anything with it, except foam. The frogs and hogs did not cooperate in the least bit.

If there are any specific questions anyone would like answered, please feel free to ask.

Overall, I would say it is probably one of the nicest bows I've ever held in my hand and everyone wanted to shoot it and complimented it sexiness. The finish was fantastic. The curves and lines with all the light accents contrasting the dark woods help make the bow "pop".

First thing you'll notice is these limbs aren't your standard straight limbs. They have almost a wavy design to them. This pic kind of shows what i'm talking about. You can see it with the bottom limb.

One of the first compliments I have to give Will is the grip here. It is nearly perfect for my hands. Not that that matters, but it did make my experience with more enjoyable.

After shooting it, the first thing I notice is the speed. It's crazy fast. I have a set of Morrison Max 4's, and i'm guaranteeing you that this bow is within a few fps of that bow with the same weight arrows (morrison is #46@28, this bow is #47@29).


You'll also notice that the longbow limbs are not your typical longbow limb design. I don't know how legal this bow would be in some tourneys due to the string could be touching the limb if the brace height isn't set high enough, making it have to be shot in the recurve class instead of the longbow class, which wouldn't be a problem due to the speed.


With that speed, there does come a little noise. Not much, but definitely some. It's not as loud as a recurve, but definitely not as quiet as most of my longbows.

There may be the slightest amount of handshock but fwiw, I don't know that i've ever shot a bow I would say has "NO HAND SHOCK". I'm sure I could adjust the brace height a little and quieten it down some, but it was shooting so good at the 7 3/8" brace that I didn't mess with it.

I shot a variety of arrows from it. The first set was a 30" 500 spine with 225 grains up front. The second set were some 32.5" .400 spine heads with 175 up front. Both shot like darts out of this bow!
