Just purchased a 56" 42# Sierra Blanca on a whim. Wondering how they are for quietness, smoothness etc? I've never had a chance to shoot one. Any dislikes about them? Thanks, Bob

Seems a little late to be asking how good a bow they are eh? You pretty much know that what someone else likes, you may not. You may love it and I hope you do. Who makes the bow anyway?

I purchssed a youth longbow from Jess for my son. Jess is a great guy to deal with and my son loves the bow.

I purchased a war hawk youth bow for my cousins son and mentioned to Jess I was looking for a 66” recurve. He happened to have one in stock and offered to send it for a tryout. Bow was 43@28 and an absolute joy to shoot, quick and quiet. He ain’t getting this bow back. Can’t go wrong with one jesses bows.

I coulda swore years ago I shot a "Jess stuart" 3pc longbow. It was a reverse set up kinda like a widow, but longbow limbs. My buddy Roy Williams "mudd" had it. Seems like it was a good shooting bow. It was a good while ago, at least 10 years or so. Now I'm curious lol.

My son has one and it's a dream. He had a choice when he graduated Grad school. A custom muzzleloader by Marvin Wotring, who makes the Muzzleloader for the West Virginia University Mountaineer, or a Jess Stuart Bow. He chose the bow. Jess also put he and his best friend up and took care of them while they were on a cross country road trip.

Jess Stuart makes the SB. Jess makes a good bow and is a gentleman to deal with. His bows shoot good to me.

Of course as with any bow out there you will have to shoot it for yourself, it's a subjective when it comes to bows...very personal when it comes to what a person prefers.

I've owned several of Jess's bows and are very fine bows, thought they are a step better than Rocky Mnt. Recurves from John Morris (deceased) which I owned also. Jess is a complete gentleman and customer service is top notch.

Love my Sierra Blanco recurve. Jess makes a great bow, no felt vibrations, no hand shock, and no stacking. Bow us smooth and shoots were you look. It's not a speed bow, wasn't built or designed to be. The finish is great, and the bow just looks good. I have nothing bad to say about Jess's bows.

I called Jess Stuart today due to the positive comments. A pleasure to talk with him. Im considering a bow from him and at a base price of $575 its amazing value.
