    Hello, I'm totally new to archery and bows in general and I wanted to try it for a long time. Today my first bow arrived and it's very beautiful! I really like the coloring, the wood and the craftsmanship. The bow is a bit worn but I think it still holds up pretty well. I started doing some...

    I have a damon howatt high speed, was wondering if anyone would know what the brace height range would be for it. It is a shooter and hunting traditional for the first time this year. Something pure about it for sure. Thanks for any help. Sent from my SM-J727T using Tapatalk

    I recently bought a Damon Howatt Ventura. On the inscriptions it says 38# @ 28" HV 1349 AMO 66". Was this bow made in 1971?

    Hi friends of the Damon Howatt Hunter. I bought one not long ago second hand and tried to find out the best brace height. My Hunter (build 1998, with fast flight tips): 62" bow, 50 lbs "on fingers", 29.5" draw length. I tried BH between 6 3/4 and 7 3/4". The sound of the bow does not seem to...

    Thanks for the history on my Super Diablo! I have 2 Hunters also. One is my current shooter, and the other one I'm going to refinish. Can anyone tell me anything about these 2?

    I have a Super Diablo that is a little too heavy for me now. I bought it just because I found one locally and always wanted one. Its time to pass it on to someone who will use it. Anybody know anything about its age and history? I'd like to be able to tell the new owner just what he's getting.

    I have recently purchased a Ventura and would like to know a little about it, year of make etc. Its marked: 38#28" HUP 3165 ANIO 66" at least that's what I think is says the hand written capital letters are not easy to read. Also what arrows would people recommend. I have a draw of 28.5" and am...

    I shot a Damon Howatt Monterey back in the early 70's (I'm 80 this year) and was sad when it had to go. I have just found a Hunter on the internet and am so looking forward to having such a fine instrument in my possession again. If there is anyone else in the UK with a similar bow, I would love...

    I bought a used Howatt Hunter. I'm unsure when it was made, what type of wood was used in the riser, and was hoping someone might know more about it than I do. Thanks in advance, Terry

    Hello, I am new to archery and have a question about the brace height on the above recurve bow. It is a 38# 28" draw 66" bow. I bought a string for it that is for a 66 length but the best I can get is a 5 1/2" brace height. I'm guessing this is not proper. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Hello all, I'm curious to know what your thoughts are to reshaping grips on wooden risers. The reason I ask is that I have a Martin Dreamcatcher which has a grip that fits my hand like it was poured into it, but I just bought a used Martin Hunter, and the grip is totally different. The...
