Shooting and Tuning
When holding the bow, there’s no sense of lacking something as the grip was adjusted to my palm, therefore it sits snug, which feature is further established with the bow’s length and weight. The draw of the string is even, you can feel the tension on the first few inches already, but it doesn’t cause problems at 30 inches either. After releasing the bow moves vertically forward, the upper arm doesn’t fall toward the archer. This was achieved by carving out a big sight window from the elongated riser which made the upper limb lighter than the lower. This plays a big role in achieving calm, exact and encored shots. The weight and stiffness of the riser absorbs the vibrations. The brace height is 23,2 cm which I tried to lower, but the bow protested, it became uptight, therefore I accepted it’s will.
Since the beginning I have used Lightspeed 500 arrows, there sure is better than them, but for me in price-value ratio they are unsurpassable. I protect these arrows against hits by bushing them, I cut them to 28,5”. I usually change the fletching (I am experimenting), but I always put foil under them. The points are 65g screws (insert weight not included)
I didn’t leave this topic as the last one for nothing, as I know that 70% of our archers get the most excited about this topic. I only think this is relevant up until a certain level, around 45”- 50” it should reach 225 feet/sec, which is enough for 3D competitions. But I measured the speed and I was surprised as the increase of the bow’s length should have caused the loss of speed, but I was mistaken. There is a difference between one speed detector and the other, therefore I cannot give exact data, but measured at the same time, with the same device, compared to other companies’ recurve bows, I can valiantly say that the bow is really fast.
To Whom I Recommend It
To all archers who would like to compete with a certified, tested and heavy-duty instrument.
Also, to someone who has high goals in this category, as I wouldn’t be keeping a F1 racing car either if it was only serving looks and collecting dust in the garage. Other than that I recommend this bow to people with at least a 28 inch draw. (In case of shorter draws I recommend the shorter models.)
A Final Comment
It is important to keep in mind that I described my very own bow, which is a first series model with extras on it. It was made specifically according to my requirements. Naturally, a test model was made before mine, which absolutely persuaded me, and my bow was made based on it. When ordering, based on the standard model and by liaising with István Szalóky, it is possible to customize the bow’s colour, the extras that go on it and the grip can be fitted to hand. The possibilities are almost infinite. I wish you good luck and confident racing with this wonderful bow.
