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.

Great Value Bow - Purchased Oct 2017

12 October 2017
I was going to buy the Samick Sage but at $169 could not go past the Epic Hawk (40lb). The limbs are well finished with no sharp edges and the string nocks are well cut and smooth. The riser fits the hand well however it is not finished off as good as it could be with some rough areas that could have been sanded and finished better. It shoots well and with other outlets selling this bow for around $300 you can't go wrong. Very good bow for the price. - Rating based on $169 price point.
