Here are my first impressions of my new Super Kodiak. I just got the bow yesterday, so it has only benefited from the most cursory of tuning and fiddling yet. That said, I am really enjoying the bow, and it is performing well, when my own deficiencies as an archer do not raise their ugly heads.

As a traditional archer, it seemed almost mandatory that I own at least one Bear bow, as Fred Bear was such a titan in the industry, and his bows so prevalent and well-received. I chose to get the top of the line one-piece at this juncture, and my choice seems to have been a good one at this moment. The bow is a very handsome, comfortable, and easy to use recurve thus far.

It is a reasonably fast bow, but certainly not quite on par with the highest performance recurves out there. That said, if you want to use a lighter arrow weight, it doesn’t complain, develop shock, or suffer from additional loudness at the shot. I saw over 190 fps with 430 grain arrows. For many circumstances, that may be missing the point. It throws the big 556 grain aluminum arrows at respectable speeds in the mid 170s and is very pleasant to shoot. That is probably all that can be asked of a time-honored design.

Music on this one was, again, Keith Jarrett from his Rio concert. This time, Part 9.

Enjoy!
