After seeing the pic I asked myself why I didn't strap the Eagles Flight on it while test driving.
She handled nicely and launched with authority. Will is quiet an artist and those considering a 3 pc. should give this baby serious thought. Now that she's gone the water is falling and frogs are waiting. Sure did wanna ship her with a slime coated riser! [banghead]

For those who shot both, the recurve and hybrid which one do you prefer and why?
Thanks in advance.

I'll be hunting with Hope in September and im getting ready to make up a set of woodies for her. since our season actually opens August 26th I'll be receiving her and getting tuned after the opener.

Wanting to be as close as possible on the arrow setup so therefore, I'm asking the current holder of Hope to post a degree of center cut to help me select a spine weight.

Faith arrived safe and sound today...strung over lunch and taaaaa-daaaa 20 yard bullseye first arrow. I was late back to work after lunch and told my staff I had a hot date with "Faith". Murmurings and rolled eyes [Smile] !

I get her a little longer as I have a moose hunt. Truthfully I am injured. Jiujitsu omplaplatta (shoulder locks) and trad archery do not mix. I have had my hands full trying to stay in the game...then along comes Faith.

I am going to kill a moose with this bow. She told me over lunch, whispering sweet nothings over a growling stomach in scorching heat as the arrows made a rhythmic thump into the target.

Stay tuned...

It's been almost a month since the last post, so I figured I would let you know I received Faith today from Mike. Due to his shoulder injury he passed her along early.

I was concerned at first about not having an opportunity to hunt with her opening day, but now I have plenty of time to get acquainted. The first thing I noticed was the mass weight. Having shot mostly Hill style bows weighing about 18oz. it took a little getting used to.

The first shot with a bare shaft was to the right and nock high. I adjusted the brace height from 7 1/4 to 7 1/2 and I was right on the money. The mass weight and relatively low draw weight allowed me to take my time with each shot.

I look forward to hunting with her this October for deer, but I just might be able to hunt bear at a friend's property in Pennsylvania. Hopefully this bow will get some good mojo.
