I just watched S H Park take out the pinhole camera in the X from 70m with a Samick Masters (World Cup 2007 stage 1).True that Hoyt has the market share of hardware, followed by Win & Win...But back to the bow at hand. Samick does make some good quality stuff.William Arwemakere - who's decidedly happy today!!!On Sat, Oct 16, 2010 at 9:29 PM, Carolus <eulenhorst@...> wrote:
Samick bows tend to be good consistent shooters and a number of them are
shot in the SCA. They are mid-range Korean bows and while Olympic
style, not high end enough for use in that venue. I bought one for my
Lady and it shoots well. I can recommend them.
> I've got my own question about suitable bows. A little over ten years ago I was pretty solid into archery but had to give it up (had to sell the bow). I remember I had a Mahaska longbow, 45# at 28" (but I pull 25" so it was more like 40# real), shedua wood riser and red oak(?) limbs with a purple heartwood inlay. It shot very well.

I tried a recurve recently and did well after a decade of not shooting, it was 30# but it felt too light for me, and I remember my old longbow being just slightly too heavy, so I am thinking of going with a 40#/28" (about 35# at 25").
