Coming full circle - Heartofhunter

I started out in traditional archery shortly after graduating from high school, 25 years ago. The second bow I owned was a 74lb BW ma. And lets face it to much bow to learn good archery skills on but I still managed to kill some stuff with it including my first elk. In the years that followed I sold the ma and bought sold many widows,shafers,Morrisons,etc etc to the tune of over 40 different customs bows(13 in one year) including 11 different widows MA,PSR, PA etc. It seems now ive come full circle and just traded for a 2012 PCHX 60" and 63lbs at 28". Ive only had the bow for less than a week and am really liking it. It is the first time ive had a Widow with a low grip and I wonder what took so long to try it. I used to not pay much attention to the Black Widow booth at Kzoo and Compton or on the net in classified coloumns but my eyes are opened to a New Black Widow Bows and the current owners deserve some praise for implementing the possibility of so many variations of their product instead of the old grey or brown days. The new Widows can be had in so many different variations they are a true custom bow today, so I guess ive come full circle to a new and improved Black Widow, Toby and Roger, Ive never met you but congratulations and continued success, Don.

Congratulations on finding a bow that you really enjoy owning and shooting. I would agree with you on how nice the Black Widow bows look and shoot. But, that is only part of the reason I shoot Black Widow bows. I admire Black Widow's customer service and appreciation for your business. I also admire Black Widow bow company for their love for The Lord. May the good Lord be your outfitter and guide may he cause you to always shoot straight,and may the trophies you pursue be worthy of the book. Thanks to Roger,Toby and John for y'all's hard work and God Bless

Lord, Lord, Lord! I thought I was the world's worst on bows! Feel better now that I know there are others out there that could be as bad or worse. I have met the BW crew on several occasions & they are the best in the business. Don't know how many total employees there are but it takes all of them to be Black Widow. LOL

I would have to agree with Heartofhunter. The bows this shop is putting out today and all the selections combined with the history of this company(Wilson Bros/Ken Beck/Roger/Toby and the crew. When G fred came on board this got my attention and believe me theres reason for that. You are looking at 100's of years of combined Bow building knowledge and experience. Ive been a traditionalist since the early 60's and I am one of those guys that believes when things work well for you dont mess with trying to tweek or fix it. One of Freds bows lasted me over 25yrs since 2005 when I retired it Ive been looking at the Widow shop closely.In weeks coming I'm gonna be in the Widow camp putting their bows to the test. Fred was one who had it figured out years back in placing an arrow as close to the thumb forefinger as possible with that shelf/grip. It was this combo curved shelf/ grip placing the arrow on the forefinger that become the deadly combo for me. Only time will tell in the coming months shooting Widows KB/PA/PCH with Asbells grip. I can't wait
