All, I have purchased my first recurve bow this past weekend. It is a Super Diablo in perfect condition and I really like it. I have two questions and hope someone may be able to help me out. First off, I would like to know anything about this bow like when it was made or how old it is. Below is the information on the bow.
55# @ 28"
USA Martin archery Inc ina circle with a deer picture.
Then has Damon Howatt signature on it.
Secondly, this bow seems to me to be very loud. I had jstu gotten into Traditional archery last year and purchased my first longbow which I love. I thought i would try a recurve so purchased this one. Never having one before this may be the nature of the beast but the recurve is so much louder than the longbow. I do have string silencers on but that doesn't seem to help at all. Not sure if it has to do with the wider limbs and the string slapping them but just really seems to be loud. Is there anything that I can do to help this.
