Default New to me bow

I was able to trade my Thunderchild for a Tall Tines recurve. Got it just before I went out of town. Took a few shots with jt but didn't have time to do much.
Got in at 5am this morning after driving all night and slept about 4 hours. Got up and got busy but a few minutes ago I took it out and started playing around. Working on getting brace height and nock height dialed in. Needs a new string but I'm sure Daniel can fix me up there.
However after adding and subtracting weight from some 500 spine arrows I had already cut I was getting decent arrow flight and tried to bear down for a group at 15 yards. Looks like I will order some arrows as well.

I know. And I know it was "luck" as I wasn't aiming for that arrow but hopefully it will work well. It's about 50lbs at my DL. Should make a good hunting companion if I can get it dialed in.

I think that you will like the bow. I have a couple of them and really cannot tell a lot of difference between them and the Schafer Silvertips. I took my newest out and shot it yesterday morning. It looks like it will be a keeper. I just got it last week and really haven't messed with it much. I have been running about 7 1/2" on brace height on my bows. Both are a 60" short riser set up. It looks like yours is also a short riser so that is a good place to start.

Sorry about the arrow. Stuff happens.

I saw the other thread about quivers and it reminded me of this one that came with the latest bow. I don't use them.

Thanx fellas. I contacted the maker and am going to get a set of the bezel type limb bolts from him as the knurled knobs are practical but ugly. So far I like shooting it. The 1/8 past center is a bit different than the 3/16ths on my Widow but in a good way. Hopefully at 60" it won't hinder me shooting from my Krivoman or Maverick blinds.

You won’t have any trouble shooting a 60” bow from a Krivoman or Maverick blind. There is plenty room in both. I am taller than you, and shoot 64” bows with no concerns out of both of those!

Those bolt may not look very good but they sure spoil you if you take the bow apart very often. About the only thing faster is an ilf rig.

I'm very surprised the speed and trajectory of this bow. Only 3lbs heavier than my Widow but I don't have to consciously adjust elevation at 25 yards like I do with the Widow.

I have a very good friend who has both a Silver Tip, and a Tall Tines.

He is thinning the herd (large herd, with several big names in it), and wants to keep only one recurve. He has it narrowed down to these two.

They both shoot great for him, and so well, that he is having a hard time deciding which one to keep.

Long way about saying - that's a great little bow you've got there.
