Another new toy

Unread postAuthor: inonickname » Fri Oct 28, 2011 11:38 pm

:D

I've stopped compound shooting now so I'm picking up a recurve. Decided to go with a Hoyt GMX in red fusion w/ 990TX carbon fiber/syntactic foam limbs.

-25" red fusion GMX
-Long 42# 990TX limbs (really 46# considering my draw length)
-SF Premium limbs (training limbs)
-Sureloc contender sight w/ Beiter aperture
-ARE rest
-W&W clicker
-Cartel triple plunger
-Custom 8125 string
-2114 Easton X7 Eclipses
-Cartel triple stab (probably going to order a v-bar and matching side rods)

Anyone else shoot recurve or fita/field/3d, or just shoot in general? Let's see your stuff :wink:

Nice bow!

Im sorry but i cant give someone credit shooting factory made bow :( I know so many bowmakers in finland, most of them as a close friend, i have shot many handmade longbows, recurves, flatbows etc. and iv shot a compound bow, and i have to say the feeling when shooting beautifull handcrafted bow is awesome :D

but still nice bow

I know a (young) apprentice cabinet maker who makes their own bows locally- he's made some nice pieces of work but is still on a learning curve with making a really durable bow. Once he has it basically mastered though he's agreed he'll guide me through making one, I'd like to make a nice laminated recurve.

I appreciate the traditional stuff too. Sure can't shoot it well, but I like the idea and feel of it.

I would probably put more effort into practicing with a more traditional bow but I shoot FITA now, and barebow/recurve doesn't really fit competitive shooting for me. I'd like to give it a try someday though. Traditional shooting was what interested me in archery as a kid.

Incase anyone's wondering... Just to give a feel for how expensive archery is, that set of limbs alone retail $650.
