My favorite is my Tall Tines Stickflinger. Hybrid performance and as quiet as a Hill bow. Brian came up with something special with that one. That being said, my other favorites are in my signature. My Cleland Stickbow is a sensational shooter, and is a bit different than some other bows. Gregg Coffeys bows have always been among my favorite ever, and Big Jims, and about a half dozen other bowyers 😂

I have owned and tried several different custom bows over the years. But never found one that fit or impressed me as much as my Martins, Hunter, Scorpion, Super Diablo, Mamba and hopefully one day Martins new Diablo Super Elite. I always keep my eyes open for old Martins as well. I was lucky enough to come an old Diablo on RMS Gear last October that I was blessed to harvest a beautiful coyote and 9 pointer the following weekend after receiving it.

I have a Mohawk that is a current favorite. Smooth draw and so quiet on the release. Vince knows how to make a great bow!

I have answered posts like this before and usually a few years I go back and see my answers have changed since then.

My favs right now are my Big Jim Thunderchild and my Black Ram Traditions recurve. Also I love my 60 kodiak and 68 Grizzly.

At this stage of the game, my favorites and dream bows are the same. Between my Schafer Silvertips, and Blacktail recurves, I can't imagine any thing better. I am a lucky man.

I would say my favorite bows that I've had we're a Jordan stalker longbow, Bob Thompson zipper, and the kwyk styk I have now. My dream bow would have to be a 58" Schafer recurve

My favorite is the bow in my signature. Of the 200+ bows that I've owned or shot, it performs the best in my hands of any bow available regardless of price points from cheap production bows through $2500 customs.

As for a dream bow, I like the one in my signature although I do wish it were a 2-piece take down only because that would make traveling with it less cumbersome. I don't know if I would do fancy exotic veneers or just go with some bias cut grey laminate if I had to order another though. I love the pretty woods, but I hunt mostly in oaks and hickories and the grey bows just disappear in that environment and look almost just like the natural tree bark in the area.

I can’t decide which bow will be next Whip, Centaur, or Maybe a Schaefer recurve?? I I’ve been looking for a Whippenstick in 40-45#, but no luck yet. This hobby sure is addictive

Funny how that dream bow thing works......I wanted a Silvertip for years. Through buying and selling and trade'n I finally got one. I shot well with it and it has the best grip I have ever held. But it just did not trip my trigger. I have had a bunch of good bows but I just seem to get back to bows made by Chad Holms. I also have a bunch of ASL's that really are fun to shoot.

I've got a Caribow Featherhorn that I though about for a few years. Finally ordered one and got it about a year and a half ago. This is the one I'll hang on to for a long time.

I think I've got mine. 2 of them. One is a Primal Tech longbow and then my Black Widow PCH. I love the Black Widow factory graybark pattern on my recurve, but my longbow is absolutely gorgeous. Both of them are shooters too!!

I guess I'm plain jane. The bows that have fitted my style the best are the Martin hunters. would love to find one in a lefty at 45#'s. I've also had a Kanata and that grip fits very well. As I age ,I've been getting rid of the high poundage bows,but always looking for the Holy Grail of bows. don't know what it is ,but I'll know it when i shoot it
