View Full Version : longbows in Cabelas
Never tried trad. archery, just wondering if the bows in cabelas (Viper delux) would be one to avoid or if any wood bow will at least do the trick. I know all bows are not created equal, but rather is there anything I should watch out for?
In my experience, it's a lot easier to find a good "cheap" recurve than longbow--I've only shot one longbow that retailed for less than $300 that I considered a pretty good bow, but I have bought lots of recurves for less than $100 (used) that were good shooters. I would avoid PSE traditional bows.

I have had excellent luck with PSE traditionals.

Hello, I have shot the Viper longbow and to be honest I didn't like the hand shock. LBR is right, I picked up a 50 pound Bear recurve on E-Bay for 75.00, I use it for bowfishing. Give E-Bay or simular a try, bet you can find a better bow for same amount or cheaper. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif
