Shot my Saber Takedown at the range for the first time today. Only "aid" I have on it is a NAP Flipper Rest. No sights. Started as 15yds and moved to 20 after I gained some confidence. I don't have enough experience with other traditional bows to compare this too. All I can say is I had fun shooting it. I agree with the earlier post that it is consistent. At least when I miss I miss consistently. I can work on my form to help that. The only other thing I've done besides change the string and the arrow rest is put some felt strips from a roll of adhesive velcro over the string grooves. Got that at Home Depot. Very inexpensive way to help quite the bow. Works great. I don't think you can go wrong getting this bow. Its a good value and lots of fun to shoot and its an awesome looking bow.
