Looking for feedback on the 62" Half Breed 3 piece. Are they smooth pulling bows, any handshock? Are they real quiet? Any other info will help. Thanks, Bob

A bow is a bow, but a consistent draw and release with close to perfect arrows makes a big difference.

I'm never sure what people are looking for on these threads. What I find shoots great, you may not even care for. As for how a bow shoots, most of like design will be so close most people won't be able to tell a difference. The key is if it works for you. Period.

Been shooting a 62" HB for years. Have one with 2 sets of limbs. Also a couple of his longbows. Yellowstones are very nice bows. Very reasonably priced for the quality of workmanship Rich W. puts into them. Mines very quiet, but you still have to tune a bow and match the proper arrow weight to one and to your own individual style of form, draw, and release to make a bow as quiet as a guy can get it, no matter what brand it is. Email Rich from his web site or call and chat with him about what you are looking for. He sometimes has some already available depending on what weight you need. Otherwise his delivery time is not that long from scratch. I noticed one came up today in the Classifieds, in a lower draw weight, priced right

I owned one a few yrs back, tore a rotator and had to move down in #. It was a sweet shooter similar to the Pronghorn, Rich makes a quality bow.

I think the OP is looking for exactly what he stated: feedback. Obviously the OP has to make the final decision on whether or not a bow will be for him or not. There are so many folks with a wealth of knowledge on this site it is sometimes mindbogling. Many make their own bows, others own or have owned their own bow shops and have lots of experience with many different bows that most of us do not have. Others have personally known the boyers who made the bows and may be able to give the OP a little insight. We don't all have the same likes and dislikes but if enough posters give the OP their "feedback" he may know more about the bow than he does now.

I'm gonna get a 1/2 breed from Rich in the near future. I have a "Yellowstone Hunter" and like it alot. Rich is a nice guy to talk to and will work with you on your wood choices. He dyed my wifes "Spike" bow blue with black limbs. Turned out nice! He makes some really good looking,smooth drawing,durable,quiet bows. I'm sure the 1/2 breed would be no different.

Good to see some members are giving some positive feedback to a member who is inquiring about a particular bow that he is interested in.
