View Full Version : Question for the Scepterman

03-04-2009, 10:12 AM

I need a bow recommendation for my dad. He is about 6' or 6'1" and has a measured draw length of 28" on the nose. He wants a bow he can handle like say in the 50 to 60 pound range. He will be hunting exclusively out of a box type shooting stand. Speed is not paramont, he would be more into ease of draw/hold and forgiveness. Also he is looking for a more value type (Gold series or used bow). I have found several used Martins on Ebay and also some packages on new bows. This wouldn't be a situation where he would ever want to go up in draw weight.

Thanks for your help.

He's probably at work, but a little more informtion would help. For one, is he planning on shooting fingers or release?

Why only for Scepterman? The others may be offended. :D ;) I'm not him, but will say Bengal or Cheetah.

Oh it will be release. I have met scepterman, I just posted it here so as not to bug him at work! :) Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

I got a Cheetah for my wife, and a Leopard for my youngest daughter and found them both to be very nice shooting bows with plenty of "punch" for it's diminutive size and relative draw weight.

Saber would be the cheapest, and probably shoots like the rest, almost the same specs as well...

09 moab set at 60 pounds perfect for your dad.

A saber would make a good bow to start out with. However, if you want a real shooter that will last him even when his shooting/tuning abilities pick up, go for the MOAB. I'd personally reccomend the Firecat because of the aded tunability of a Hybrid Binary system, not the extra speed. However, if your dad doesn't want a harsh draw, the MOAB will be a better choice.

Have him shoot it and see if he likes it. That is of paramount importance in getting a new bow.
