    Default Rytera Seeker

    Well, got to take a close look at a Rytera Seeker last weekend. I didn't shoot it, but did draw it back. I have to say, one of the most awkward looking bows I have ever seen. lol It did hold nicely, and had a smooth draw. I'd have to wait a year or so before I'd ever consider one though. There's alot of things on that bow that need to be time proven. One neat thing about it though, you can change draw length, and brace heigth easily just by moving the handle forwards and backwards. That also presents the problem of changing the brace heigth when you change the draw length though. It is definitely a novel looking bow though.

    Ehunter...I'm glad to see someone finally have hands on w/ this bow even though you did not get to shoot it. I sort of get the handle adjustment idea to fit each archer but are there any true advantages over the design of the bow except that it may be fitted to other archers? Maybe that is the whole idea. It sure looks like it has alot of hardware on it...maybe lots of things to keep adjusted; things to go wrong????

    cj, that's exactly my thinking as well. ALOT of nuts and bolts on that thing. Beyond the handle, there's 2 string suppressors, 2 handle bases that can be used as stabilizers, the handle looks like it is basically held on with conduit clamps. This one needs to be time proven, considering the problems of late with the TRG/SOS systems. I did notice it had a cable slide rather than the TRG though. lol

    The guy at my shop has one. He said he was one of the first in NY to get one. He was working on setting it up when I was out there last month. He had to take it to another shop where a friend of his works because his press would not work with the bow. I stood next to him as he took a few shots with it. It seems pretty quiet and fast too.

    Thumbs up BEAUTY is indeed in the eye of the Beholder!

    I think this is just beautiful, graceful, yet symmetrical, great flow to its lines and just deadly looking. That's just me...
    I remember when the first parallel bows seemed butt ugly, now they have grown on people. It takes awhile for us to assimilate innovations into our psyche. This is a thing of Beauty.

    Im gonna have to agree with you. When i first seen this picture, i just sat there in amazement for like 10 minutes. It is a real work of Art. If I were Martin, I sure as hell would get this patented.
