Its a High Country Excalibur XL, similar to this http://www.canyoncreekmercantile.com...0011-copy2.jpg
Its an older bow, but still one of the fastest (fps) ever made. Its notable cos the cams (wheels) are in the shape of a hatchet, which causes it to be louder and feel different to modern bows, which tend towards more circular designs. After listening to a show about the Mongols, I dug it out and dusted it off recently, and started shooting again. It currently has no accessories, I'm wondering if I should get some. A bow quiver and a sight would probably be a good start. Can anyone recommend any types of sight? I'm thinking I should probably try out a simple sheet of perspex with coordinates on it, to get used to the whole thing. I don't know what exactly stabilisers do, I dunno if I should bother to try them. The riser (thing which holds the arrow) always pissed me off, but I don't really know if there's anything I can do with that. I started shooting carbon arrows as well as aluminium, I like them. I don't have any broadheads (big tips, for hunting), I'd love to arrange some. Bowhunting is illegal in faggoty Ireland. I repaired an aluminium arrow that had has a cracked shaft, and wrapped some waxed and boric acided cotton string around the tip, I'm going to add some more vanes to it, and test it out - my incendiary arrow. I'm probably going to spraypaint it red. Does anyone use feathers as vanes anymore, or is it all just those cheap plastic things? I'm thinking of painting my bow as well, I don't know what sort of artwork would be nice. Would acrylics bond to the limbs well enough not to crack when they flex?
I know not the best picture but it's what I have handy. It's a Reflex Growler. I can't even remember what all hardware I have on it right now. I am always changing something.
I would say you will want a sight, peep sight for the string, rest, release, and stabilizer. I took that stabilizer and made a six or seven inch extension for it. That really helps to steady the bow.
