    8.5" beard and 3/4" rounded off spurs, heard the Merriam's have spurs like that. The Easterns I get in the mountains back home have the same worn down spurs from scratching in all the granite rocks....

    I own both bows. My opinion is that the Mamba would be a poor choice for beginner, the short riser makes for less stability and tougher to shoot accurately. I bought mine for short range hunting and...

    The Mamba is working for sure. I use a mouth call from Hooks, but the DSD decoys really help to bring them in close. I've taken everything but and Osceola for a slam with a bow, but want to do it...

    Thanks all.

    Rockyhud, it was a really good show, but it came after I shot. 4 toms and a jake came through right after, the jake found my dead bird and was pecking at it behind the 2 strutters.

    I bought three Martin recurves from them a few years back, they were left overs not seconds; very happy and no issues. Watched the auctions for while and got some great deals around Christmas.

    I find it helps to not only slow down during each individual shot, but to slow down between shots and make each one count. Seem to do some of my best shooting when I shoot one arrow at a time instead...

    The Mamba has a shorter riser, less wood there makes it lighter, too. I thought the speed/cast would be the same and planned on using the same arrows, but it didn't turn out that way. Not sure why?...
