As you know, we decided to buy bows. We searched for months until we found one that felt like it belonged in my hands. It’s been many years since I used a bow, and I didn’t think I would be buying another one any time soon.
We got the call that my bow had arrived and we went in to get it on my husband’s first day off. When we got there, his bow had just come in that same day.
The tech adjusted my bow to accommodate my draw length and strength. Since I had rotator cuff surgery some months ago, my left arm isn’t as strong as I would like, but it will get that way. I feel it after every practice session. Over time, it will get better.
The first nice day, by that I mean the first day the wind wasn’t 70 mph, we went out to try our bows. It was awesome. There were no adjustments needed for the sites. Since I have a low draw weight, I can use the bale of hay for a target. Eventually I won’t be able to do that. But for now, my grandson and I use the hay bale. David has to use the other target, but that’s another post.
The Craze pulls smoothly and is easily positioned for targeting. With my left arm still weak, it is a challenge to hold the bow still, so some of my shots aren’t very accurate, but even so, I do pretty good. It won’t be long until I consistently hit the bullseye. That’s just a matter of rehab from the surgery. Using the bow is great for that! Oh, did I mention that it’s adorable?? I love that animal stripe.
