Got this Grozer Extra III Composite bow about a month ago. It is 63# at my 30" draw weight and feels like a 453 bow at full draw. I usually wait a few weeks to get on and sing the praises of a new bow. This bow feels and shoots like nothing else I have ever shoot. The bow is quiet, no hand shock and seems to be as fast as most glass bows in the same weight class. The bow has no modern materials it is mad from water buffalo horn, maple wood core, sinew, deer raw hide and sturgeon glue. Braced View.

Unbraced view. I brace the bow using the two person method that Grozer and Lukas Novotny show on their sites.

The siyahs. Many people say long siyahs will always make a bow "hand shocky" one thing the ancients knew was long siyahs, long grip and short working limbs would lessen or eliminate hand shock and raise speed this bow follows that principle.

The grip and siyahs of the Magyar bows found in the graves all had horn/bone reinforcement on the grip and siyahs and this bow is no exception. Grozer and the other Asian inspired bowyers are as much historians as bowyers.

This bow is the sweetest drawing, and most pleasant bow I have ever shot. There is just something about the craftmanship and history that went into this bow.

Wow, I've always wanted to own something like that! Dare I ask how much you paid for it?

I must say I have never been a big fan of that style of bow, but your bow can make a person change their mind. Its beautiful!!! It's a work of art!!! Thats all I have to say about that. Trap

Magyar it was 750Euros and took about 20 mos to complete.

Trapper thanks it is one of those bows that makes you understand our ancestors had things right.

I shoot Sitka footed with Purple Heart barrel tapered arrows by Brandywine Arrows. Can't beat them. I'll get a full draw picture on here sometime this week.

now your just bragging! lol. i bet it is a sweet shooter! i had a toth bow, looked a bit like that, but all fiberglass composite. im glad yours doesnt hand shock, because mine did horribly! but it shot very nice! i hope you enjoy that thing, i plan to own a full size horn bow one of these days!

Nice looking bow I have always wanted to shoot one. I always thought static tip curves where harder to string, but taking 2 people that tops it.

Thanks to everyone.

I have also shot other bows with the longer siyahs and have experienced hand shock but the difference is the material and the design of the longer siyah with longer grip area and shorter limb.

Rich I use the two person method because with a stringer the siyahs flip and any other method there is a chance to twist the limb or lose the symetry of the bow. Both can be fixed easily but if you have a "stringing partner" it takes all the worry away.
