At the bottom of their Web page.Trading post. Lots of bad cut arrows and some nice demo bows. I would say some good deals on some of the Diamond bows.

Got the bow very nice however it is 40 pounds at 31 inches This was not advertised I guess I assumed it was at 28. So now I have a 36 pound recurve instead of a 40 to 44 pound recurve which I was hoping. It is very nice however if they don’t accept a return I guess I will be selling it or maybe keep it for training purposes but can’t really afford to buy Another recurve or Longbow.

Check the weight at your draw!....or pull her back further!! ;)

I did ,at my draw length it is 36 pounds I guess I could pull it back to my ear LOL If they don’t take it back I’ll probably just keep it and shoot it and save up for a 40 to 45 pounds or later .

If you otherwise like the bow, I would look into trading limbs with someone who wants to drop some draw weight.

Call 3R and talk to them. I'm sure they will help you.

It may shoot faster than most 40lb bows, You should try it out first.

Laugh if you want, but I talked to Mike Palmer a couple of years ago and we had a conversation about how he built his limbs with carbon and not (hard rock maple) like Bear does. And you would have to shoot a 10 pound heavier (Bear) bow to get the same speed, energy, penetration, etc. as his bows. So look at it as you want, but shooting this 36 pound Palmer is like shooting a 46 pound Bear, Ben Pearson, Shakespeare or any other that used maple in their limbs.

I believe it ! Shot it for an hour and was thoroughly impressed! Just sold a 48@28 custom longbow and I’m not seeing much difference at 20 yds I’m keeping it !
