First, I have to give a great thanks to Jim of BuildYourOwnBow! for the drawing and all the help he provided for me. Thanks very much! Until now I have been shooting a Martin Super Diablo, but after trying the Hammer I don’t think I’ll ever go back. It shoots really well and draws so smooth. I haven’t completely finished it yet, but I am already shooting better than with the Martin. The bow ended up at 53#@28″…almost exactly as I wanted. The hammer is sleek, smooth, fast and beautiful. Somehow, the longbow feels more natural to me to shoot, maybe it is the grip? Thanks again!
