I have decided to quit messing around with other bows nothing I mean nothing shoots as good for me as a Blackwidow three peace takedown bow. I sold all but one of my none Blackwidow bows and it to will be sold. Ordered this beauty it is a CHX takedown Black and White Ebony I ordered it all wood no phenolic and no red. She shoots great and we're I'm looking very quiet love this bow. It will be my 3D and backup hunting bow. Widow.

Is the draw weight 55# at 28"? Is the overall length 56"? I can't quite make out the writing on the lower limb.

I like Black Widow bows well enough to own 3. I haven't gotten around to selling my other bows yet.

Wish I lived closer to ya! I would love to shoot it, as I've never shot a BW bow of any kind. I've had some high dollar custom recurves, back when I could pull a 60-65 pounder. I've only got three now, a 50 lb Browning set up for bowfishing and a couple of older Bear recurves, one at 50lbs and one at 30lbs. That 30 is a fun stump shooter, when I can pull it back. My left shoulder hurts thinking about it on days like today.

That is a handsome Bow! Congratulations! Looking forward to your "harvest" photos.

I've been hunting lately with an early 60's Wilson Brothers Black Widow that belonged to my best friend most of his life. He passed away from cancer years ago and I eventually bought it from his wife. Not nearly as fast as the modern Widows but at 62" and 53 pounds at 28" it's incredibly smooth. I'm 62 and pull 31 inches though so it's about 60 pounds at my draw. I need to come back to the site with my phone so I can try to post a pic of it. It had white glass so Bob always kept it in camo tape, limb covers or paint. It is currently painted similar to ASAT camo and the danged thing just disappears in the woods.
