bow! I decided to stick with the 66, though, since it was the one suggested.
After doing archery on and off since high school in the mid 70's, I can
safely say this is the best bow I've ever used, much less owned.
Once I get my gauntlets and gorget, watch out! ;)
P.S. I use Sammy for both target and CA archery.
