  • What Bow Weight for me?If your focus is target shooting, then 45# or less is a good start. You need endurance for long periods of shooting, but enough cast (ability to shoot an arrow) to shoot distances. For bowhunters, check your local game laws, but the minimum weight normally ranges from 35-45# for deer sized game. Go with a weight that you can comfortably manage, most popular is 50# or 55#. NEVER over-bow yourself. Straining too much to pull a bow back will decrease your accuracy and even strain a muscle. Tip for compound shooters: Try going down 10-15# in bow weight from your compound when starting traditional archery. The two bows use different muscles to pull and no weight let-off, so do not match weight for weight. All Traditional bows  have bow weights measured at a 28" draw length. This is an industry standard.
  • Importance of Bow Length Shooting too short of a bow will shorten your distance to stack (feel like hitting a wall when drawing past a certain length), have more finger pinch (hurts your accuracy and fingers), and feels as if you are drawing more bow weight as the weight is distributed over a shorter length. Having a longer bow will draw smoother, not stack, and normally have greater accuracy as you get a cleaner release due to lower string angle. your draw length determines what will be a "too short" of a bow for you. All adult bows are rated at 28", but not everyone draws to that point. Find your draw length by using a draw check arrow or watching an online video (Determining Draw Length) for help. If you shoot a compound bow, it may not be the same length on your traditional bow. Use our chart ONLY as a recommendation

Cartel Epic Hawk Take-Down Recurve Bow

By: on 22 November 2018
I bought a 40 pound bow and I'm really happy with it. I started at a brace hight of 8 1/4 inches. After a couple of weeks due to my strength and draw length increasing the string noise got louder from slapping the limb a bit. I re-tuned the brace hight just a touch above 7 1/2 inches. It shoots true and very quietly using 500 spline Fleetwood arrows which I purchased at the same time. Added some beaver balls for some extra noise dampening (and they look cool on this bow). I would recommend this bow to anybody.

Incredible Value

I was very hesitant in purchasing this bow as I was really keen on the Samick, however, when Hoddywell had a special offer in this item, I pulled the trigger and purchased one. I have now been using this bow for several weeks and am absolutely amazed at its performance per dollar spent. It is built beautifully with great quality control, the ergonomics are just perfect. Usability is way above its price range, this performs exceptionally for a sub $200 bow. It is super quite and balanced and the accuracy is spot on...a really nicely balanced bow indeed. I cannot speak highly enough of this bow, I would highly recommend it to a beginner as well as an advanced archer...incredible value for money 5 STARS in my book!

Fantastic value for the price

Thanks again for the bow. I’ve been shooting FITA competition for over 30 years and I can’t believe they are making bows of this quality for the price. A couple of points: Remember the supplied string needs to be twisted to go to the correct brace height. A couple of firm slaps on the wrist will remind you to do so. Fire a few shots, check brace height, use the supplied bow stringer to remove string and twist. I assume the supplied string is made of Dacron, so it does stretch with shots, and needs quite a number of shots before it settles. I found the quietest brace height involved 70 twists of the string in total. It really is a smooth drawing bow. I can only compare it to my 40 pound Spigarelli riser with W&W limbs. However, I did not notice any stacking at all. It actually fires much quieter than my Spigarelli bow, which costed 10 times as much. Due to the smooth draw I am really surprised I did not notice the extra poundage as much as I might have expected. Long term durability? Can't be sure at this stage, but I also have a Cartel longbow which has lasted many years, so I would not expect any different. Overall, extremely impressed and have recommended this bow to members of my family.
