32366Sammy The Wonder Bow
- Oct 28, 2012Some months back, I asked for recommendations for a low poundage CA bow, and
someone, I forget who, suggested a Samick 66 Takedown. I ordered one and it
arrived, but I was unable to attend an event until this weekend. It *far*
exceeded any expectations I had. It shot so smoothly I don't even need my
arm guard, so I took it off (I was doing target shooting, not CA). The low
draw weight put no strain whatsoever on my bad shoulder, although by late
afternoon, my left shoulder was just beginning to feel a bit sore. This is
hands down the *BEST* bow I've ever owned!
My longbow, Pegasus, was good, but the string slapped my lower forearm and
wrist so badly, I needed a heavy leather arm guard lined with closed cell
foam to use it.
My crossbow, Trusty, is good, but it has a hair trigger; if you breathe on
this thing, it fires. I lost many arrows, almost shot someone, and broke the
same finger twice with it. It won me two archery tournaments, but....
This Samick 66 Takedown is PERFECT!!!! I've named *her* (my other bows
were/are 'male') Sammy The Wonder Bow.
To the Good Gentle who recommended this bow, you have my undying gratitude;
this is the best bow I've ever owned, or even used.
