Is this bow a Shrew?
« on: January 01, 2007, 08:00:00 AM »
Hi all,

 Just found this pic and was wondering if this bow is a shrew? And if it is than why don't I have one yet! A real looker of a bow for sure.

I like the looks of the "Super Shrew" and I see it only comes in 56", 58" & 60" lengths. I have a long draw, 30" on my Black Widow PSAX, how would this go with such a short bow?

 Still looking for some pics of Shrews too?   :help:

Aussie,

I have a couple of Shrews - a 60" SS Gold that I ordered directly from Ron and received Mar06, and 58" SS Deluxe (grey actionwood) that I bought used Dec05.  Like you, I also have a 30" draw.  The 60" bow handles my long draw with no problems whatsoever, and I think I enjoy shooting the 58"er even more.  Both bows pull about 53# at my draw.
The more I learn, the less I know.

Thanks Mr Thompson (thats what I had to call my first boss...lol) I was kinda worried about that.

 And thanks for the tips bentpole. I'll head over and take a look see.

 But I must say by the looks of the pic I started this thread with I'm getting hooked!  :knothead:

Sure is....THAT'S MY BOW!  I took that photo while on an Arizona elk hunt. It's a 60" Super Shrew Deluxe.

That particular bow is 57@26" and I shot either 27" 2016's with a 145gr tip or 27" Heritage 150's with a 175 gr tip out of the bow.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a pair of Super Shrew bows in grey and brown and a brown Super Shrew deluxe, all 56" and around 65# at my 29.5" draw. The Super Shrews are two piece connexion hinge takedowns which makes them real handy to travel with. I have had good success shooting these bows with 600 gr carbons, front heavy with STOS 165 gr broadheads and 100 gr weight adaptors.
