Which to buy..... How to choose.
I've been wanting a Kassai for 10 years now and I may work towards
purchasing one over the winter/spring. Felix let me shoot his one AA
and I loved it. The only thing is... back then there were two models
and a choice between suede and non-suede around the limbs. I believe it
was Magyar and Hun and perhaps Magyar Sport back then. If I'm going to
spend this much money I'm going to get the bow I want and want to make
the best decision. Now... lets just say there a few more choices and
many many considerations.
I'd love to hear some advice and feedback, especially from those with
experience with Kassai's weapons.
I've always found the Hun to be attractive both for its physics and for
its unusualness (yes, I know the Japanese would disagree). Now there is
the Mongol-C/Panther and Falcon. I don't know what to make of 'The Horn
Hunter'... it says much about pretties but nothing about performance.
I don't plan on going super heavy... it's just no fun not being able to
shoot when the chronic fatigue makes even getting out of bed in the
morning... also, I just don't think it's necessary. My goal is to be
very accurate and to enjoy a full day of shooting without the last 1/4th
of the day being an ordeal.
I no longer see the options for suede/non-suede and color/natural on the
website. Is this something that's no longer done? Any opinions on
options like these if they are still available?

- My wife has the Magyar Sport and I have a Hun. We love both bows. In
part because they are each built for our differing frames.
My wife has a normal torso with very short arms. The Magyar Sport
delivers a good energy curve over her short draw.
Me, I'm an Ape (6'4" with the arms of an even taller person). The hun is
very smooth with no stacking what-so-ever when drawing full length
(un-cut) 32" shafts.
Both bows are very stable with almost no hand shock. But they work for
very different builds of archers. So look at the bows keeping your own
frame in mind.

- I have been making Edwin's replacemnt strings for 11+ years and I have had
several models to sell. I would suggest calling and discussing it with
him. I have not had all models but I liked all that I have had but some
just felt right and the others were okay. So it is going to be more of a
