Anyone know whether these are made for long draws a la Thunderchild? The riser seems pretty short. Looking at a 60" and I have a 32" draw. Any impressions of the bow would be welcome also. Thanks.

I don't know about the draw length limitations of the bow but I have a 56" coming next week! I love the design and how unique the bow is. It is everything that you could want in a longbow in my opinion.

My suggestion is to call Treadway, he's one heck of a nice guy. He will answer all of your questions and tell you a few stories as well, I'm sure of that [Big Grin]

Take care,

Just got a black swamp 51@28. Been shooting it everyday. It was made in 2011. Been wanting one for years and finally got one from a member on leatherwall.

I have a 60" Black Swamp......I draw just over 29" and it is as smooth has butter all the way. I know I could draw it farther. But I would call Mike........make sure you have some time to talk.

He makes a 62" Black Swamp I'm pretty sure would get back that far. Also a 64" Black Forest probably would too.

Mike’s bows are about as good as it gets. I have yet to find one of his models that didn’t shoot great !!! Not to mention his fit and finish are as good as it gets. As others have said give Mike a call and check. PM me if you need his number. I honestly think at a 32” draw a 62” Black Swamp would work a lot better for you. But that’s just my opinion.

My Black Swamp is 62”, I draw a shade over 30”. As others have said, give him a call.

I'd go 62". The Swamp isn't as deflexed as a Thunderchild. I had a 60" for a spell and it performed excellent at 29 and felt like it maxed out about 31. I felt it was most similar in feel and performance to a Centaur.

If not Longtoke, I'll have some in a few days when mine shows up! As I understand it, the design has changed somewhat over the years and isn't quite as radical as it once was....but I'd say it still has a fair amount of R/D.

Take care,
Jason
