    I saw them at a show last month. Very different looking. There was a line and I wasn't super interested so I kept walking and can't say much. I think they look weird.....

    What's up with sights on those short bows? Isn't your peep going to be like a mile away from your eye because of the string angle?

    Lol I couldn't get past the dual riser. It looked like a pain to put a second arrow in.

    Yes, if you can get it to line up at all... prepare for awkward to nonexistent anchor points

    That feels like that peep would look a mile away. I don't know that my eyes are that good.

    Looks like it feels like a sling shot .... So short I think accuracy will have to be sacrificed but I guess they would not get to market if it was terribly inaccurate. Seems to toyish for me to try. Its like a cross breed between a bow and crossbow.

    I've shot one before. It was either the 20" or the 24" model, set at a 29" draw. It definitely has a different feel to it. If I remember right it had a kisser button because the string angle doesn't allow for nose to string with nock under the eye really. It shot fine. One of the guys partnered up with them shoots it for tournament archery. It can be shot very accurately, just as any bow on the market can, but it's not going to be as forgiving, IMO, as a longer bow. The big advantage with the size is using it in hunting scenarios. You can shoot it sitting on the ground turkey hunting for instance. You have fewer clearance issues in a stand with lots of cover, etc. Not for everyone, but I think they have a niche.

    I have never shot one but I think they are pretty cool. It definitely looks different but i'm sure with a little practice it would be a killing machine and would fit well with the saddle hunting style.

    Yes, they would work very well out of a saddle.

    When shooting this bow, do you grip the handle or can you relax the hand on the grip?
    Every show and other videos of this bow being shot looks as if the shooter has a tight grip.

    Standard relaxed grip as with any other bow.
