I have had a few widows in my day both takedowns and longbows. Always really like one piece widows older ones best. If you like post pics love to see them.<><

I've had one. Didn't like it near as much as PSA. I guess the heavier weight of the psa is what I like so much.

This is NOT an older bow, (quite new actually). It is a PTV; I believe that is because the riser is ironwood, but it is the same design and the PTF. Still searching for it’s first whitetail. Have a Blessed Day All.

Mtquiver

how do you like it

I love mine really a great recurve

Seems to me that the one piece Widers are thought of very highly by their owners because they never come up for sale. PA’s, KB’s, and PTF’s are a rare sight in the classifieds.

and then there are those bows that everything that came after hoped to be. 'Holly Golightly', from an era where class and bowmaking peaked.

You guys are killing me. I've been debating with myself on ordering a Black Widow since I got my Dad's Wilson Bros bow. His is too heavy for me to shoot regularly so I need to try something else. Haven't found the one yet. PTF or KB is probably on the top of the list but I also love the PA shape and the PSR. Want to test drive a PSR before I rule it out. Really like the 50's style of the bow but not sure the grip will agree with me as much as one of the low styles on the other bows. I like the thought of a 56" KB, that would probably be next on the list to try.

Andy Man, I Love many aspects about this bow. The physical weight, the appearance, shape and sculpturing, the riser wood; just plain beautiful in my opinion. Shoots very well so, yeah, I Love it.

The PTF is one of those bows that look like a recurve is supposed to look.

Here's my one piece Wilson Brothers Black Widow I inherited when my Dad passed away. I reckon I probably knew about Black Widow in the context of archery first, before Bear even, since thats what Dad shot.

Not a Widow, but I always thought that there was some Wilson bros. influence. 1971 Herters Perfection Sitka.

I have a one piece Widow in Greybark that's an absolutely great shooter. Not to mention it's a beautiful bow. I had one many years ago but was forced to sell it. The one I have now I recently bought. It's 47#@28" and loves 65-70# cedars. I'll take this one to the grave. Frank
