Dream Catcher vs Bamboo Viper
Assuming that both bows were of equal draw weight, I wonder which one would deliver greater arrow speed - the Dream Catcher recurve or the Bamboo Viper deflex-reflex. Any thoughts?
I have both, and they are both 50# bows. The speeds are very close. but my Dream Catcher is probably 1 or 2 fps faster with the same arrow (450gr carbon). The Dream Catcher shoots a little smoother and has almost no hand vibration as it is a heavier bow. The Viper is an awsome longbow, as is the Savannah.
I have a bunch of Martin Traditional bows (and a few compounds) and I love them all. They all have different personalities.
Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
just how fast can those recurves shoot?
440 gr arrow, drawn to 28":
50# Dream Catcher - 195 fps
50# Bamboo Viper - 193 fps
