Took some time off from the shop yesterday to shoot this "new to me" Black Creek Banshee take down. Jim really has nailed this design, the bow is fast, stable, smooth, forgiving and quiet all in one package. Finish is excellent, being a nice low luster "matte".

This was the first TD Banshee I have shot/seen first hand, really like the braced profile of the bow, really nice graceful curves & lines. This specific Banshee has a small throat at the grip with more pronounced palmswell. Wasnt sure if I would like the grip but after handling and shooting the bow it is spot on.

The specs on this bow are Macassar Ebony/Bocote riser, Actionboo core/Bocote limb veneers. Its #48@28 and plenty fast enough. Still have to get a perfect arrow dialed in, but it shoots CE 150's (29") with 175 field points very well.

A few quick pics-

It's legal in Michigan with a concealed carry permit, but cannot be used for hunting during bow season. I carry when tracking, because I figure I could make a good case for self defense if a cornered buck decides to take on me and my dachshund. Even if they didn't buy my self defense plea, I'd rather lose my permit than my dog.

Jason, yeah it really has very nice lines, something often missed on take downs.

That is one of the nicest bows I have seen on here. I like everything about it..... especially the braced profile.

yeah thats one thing I really noticed when I strung the bow, the profile is very pleasing to the eye, much more so than I had seen in most photos.

Coming back to the grip on this one, it really fits the hand, there are some contours that are really hard to pic up visually in a photo but really hit the mark when holding the bow.

Ive seen alot of Black Creek bows since Jim lives fairly close to me, and he has really refined some features and design elements lately that in my view that really jump it up a notch! Not that the older bows werent fine, but as with any craft time really allows the craftsmen to execute his plan with a subtle, deft, and skillful hand.

I think Ron is right, that looks like a concealed weapon to me! What a great use of wood! I really like those limb tips, looks like Jim has nailed down the structure and function for those beatuies. Congratulations on a neat bow! [thumbsup]

of the 1 piece bows the Siren is my favorite, but i think in the take downs I like the Banshee better.

Lamey, that is a good looking bow! Jim is building me a set of limbs for my Bear TD. Jim is a great bow builder.
