Anybody use a new Martin Jaguar Takedown?
« on: June 05, 2009, 10:10:00 PM »
I'm new to recurves, am thinking of picking one up for bowfishing to get me into traditional bows.

Martin has come out with a new takedown that is priced cheap.  (Martin Jaguar Takedown)

Has anyone handled or used one of these Jaguars?

I shot one last night, 55# @28". Very smooth drawing bow and shot well. You will have to shoot off a rest though, shooting off the shelf would require alot of creative work. Among other bows I have a Hoyt Gamemaster which is a machined riser bow like the Jaguar. The Jaguar does not compare to the Hoyt but for the money I think it is a good deal. After shooting it yesterday, I feel with a little effort you could make a nice shooter out of it.

Thanks for the help, I checked one out at Basspro and for the money they would do the job.
I am going to wait it out and shop around for something nicer.

Just picked one up at cabelas. I am new to trad, shooting myself and been shoping myself. Been shooting a 40# longbow and wanted a takedown recurve. Got sick of missing the ones I wanted in the classified ads so went and picked up a 50# jaguar. I am MORE than pleased with the bow already. It shoots great and smooth. i knew I was gonna buy it after I drilled a 3 inch group with six crappy aluminum arrows they gave me to shoot at the store.  :)
