Nothing wrong with H.H bows. I still have a 70", 39 lber that I used to shoot FITA Longbow with. Very forgiving bow. Howard rated them much higher than short twitchy recurves. His record speaks for itself. I would suggest that 66" is too short though.

blakey...With a short draw like mine,(about 26" with a Longbow) 66" seems about right...I had a 66" H.H.A. Halfbreed, it shot really nice, my Elburg Condor was 64", it shot like a house a'fire...I should have kept both of those bows......Jim

Jim, if you're going to shoot a Hill style, make sure you've got dental coverage because you'll lose most of your fillings 😀

Well dadgum I like em! I have two and both are string follow seven lakes Bows 68 long and I have no handshock. You have to learn how to hold them,,less on top and the bottom fingers hold it. Mine are nice to shoot but they are also cut to centershot. If you get one,,I'd advise you to get a SF for smooth. Get it 68 and if I did not hunt at all,,I'd go 70.

I suppose you're referring to the mythical bugaboo "hand shock" I have two count 'em two HHA bows and have not experienced any hand shock at all from either of them.

Jon....Two things that are often said of a Hill style bow is that they have lotsa Handshock/recoil, and that they are slow, as compared to the Reflex/deflex bows...Both things are too often true, but in the case of a well made Hill style bow, neither of these two negatives are present, at least not bad enough that it should make a huge difference...I Chrono test everything I own, and have for years, and Hill style bows that shoot sweet, also tend to be right up there in arrow speed comparable to most Reflex/deflex longbow designs, and quite a few Factory made recurves, even besting most of the shorter Factory built recurves...I attribute this to proper limb design, and Tiller/Limb timing...I've also shot reflex/deflex longbows that thumped my hand pretty good, some of which were from big name Bowyers...I think that it would be really cool to see Border build a real Hill style bow, but with the super light cores, and high end materials...Might be something........Take care......Jim

Jim, I'm just teasing you. Guys that shoot them love them and they've been hitting stuff for a long time. There is a bowyer in the UK called Rex Oaks, he makes flat limbed AFB called Sagitarius. These things are works of art and have a big cult following in Team Sagitarius.
