Which one piece? - Shiloh

Ok, looking for some input on which one piece recurve. I have narrowed it down to the KBX and the PTF-X. I draw 28" and want a 58" bow. I am leaning toward ordering the PTF but I must admit, the KB has a certain appeal. You definitely see more BW signature profile in the KB and probable can see more of the nice exotic wood I plan on getting. I like the forward handle profile of the PTF. I have owned the PGA the MA and PCH. I want another shorter one piece though. Those who have owned these particular bows, please chime in and give your opinion. Thanks in advance!

Hi Shiloh, I have a 58" KBX. marble wood riser, leopard wood limbs, love this bow, shoots like a dream. I shot a PTF the last time I was in Nixa and it was a sweet shooting machine to. I don't think you can go wrong with either bow. Have fun deciding let us know what you choose.

Hey Shiloh , I have several PTFXs and realy appreciate the 50-60s look with their flowing lines . I also like the larger sight window . Cheers from the Country with no Stanley Cup...

Shiloh, One thing to keep in mind is in a 58" bow you will have 2 more inches of working limb with the KB over the PTF will make for a liiiitle smoother draw.

Bearhunter, I like the looks of that marble wood/leopard wood. Never seen that combo before. Now you have muddy the waters for my next choice of wood. Real close to ordering in stock PLX Zircote/Myrtle burl to match my PCHX. Almost hit the keys a few minutes ago but my fingers kept bouncing back & forth from the keyboard to my wallet. I'm with Code1, buy 2! Had a KBX & it's a fine bow. However, name one BW model that is not a fine bow.
