fedora bows and recommedations on custom bows
« on: June 02, 2006, 11:52:00 AM »
I just got an old Bear Kodiak Magnum to get back into recurves. After shooting a compound for a few years, it had become too easy. I just love shooting instinctively again. So now I am thinking about a custom bow, doing research and putting in an order sometime over the next year. I like what I have heard about Fedora online, but would like to hear more about their bows. Since they are not far away from me, I may travel up there soon. I have heard their bows are pretty fast and custom made to fit your hand. Whatever you can tell, I am glad for your input.

I have a similar bow to the Fedora's. The best thing about it, it cost about $300 less then one of his with the same wood. I am very much sure that it shoots just as good and is just as quiet.

I just got a Fedora extreme at Sawmill and love it.  Mike spent an hour or more coaching me one on one prior to me even thinking about buying a bow from him.  The bow is fast, no handshock and whisper quiet.  Once I committed to looking for a bow he then took the time to find one that I liked, could afford and fit me.  Just from the hour or so of coaching, my shooting has improved dramatically.  He's about 1 1/2 hrs. from me and I am planning on taking lessons from him. Just my 2 cents worth.

If you are that close to Mike Fedora you would be foolish to not take a look at his work and pick his brain. He will be happy to help you make a wise decision. You can bet that he will have bows in stock that you can shoot. It will be time well spent.
