Great Plains SR Swift
« on: July 24, 2006, 10:35:00 PM »
I have been shooting my new SR Swift for about two weeks now, and I can say without hesitation that is one of the smoothest shooting recurves that I have had the pleasure of shooting.
A little tuning, and it shoots lights out, and is quiet, and fast. Though I haven't shot it through the chrono yet, I am sure I won't be disapointed.
My bow is 3 piece take down, bamboo limbs, 46# at 28"
I think Bill at Great Plains has outdone himself on this one.
I will be getting another set of libs made in 55# for an upcoming elk hunt.
Thanks for the fantastic bow.  :archer:

Hello to ALL: I just got my SR 56" 52@28". It is truly one of the smoothest bows I have had the pleasure to shoot, I draw about 27.5 and it feels like I could draw it on to my ear. I have tuned it up and it shoots great. MIne has The Tonkin Bamboo limbs and a beautful cocobola, osage phoenelic riser, truly the finest craftmanship. Dave

Thanks for this...even though it's a few years old. I'm looking at the one piece. Any further thoughts?

Thanks for the replies...looks like there's a new bow in my not-to-distant future. I just need to settle on the draw weight. I've been shooting an old Martin Hunter 50#@28". I may go to 55-57#, though, because I found a couple hundred cedar shafts in my shop I'd forgotten about, and they're spined ~70#.

I have a Swift Blackhawk 53# and63#  at 9.8 grains per pound both sets of limbs  run out at 202 fps.  63's delivering 58 ftlbs and the 53's 50# ftlbs.   Love that bow.
