I just purchased a 50# RH Hoyt Buffalo recurve from an AT member and I got to throw a dozen arrows through it before I have to go to work.
I didn't mess with it, as the tiller was set by previous owner, and he said it shot best at (near) the 8" BH setting, so string was left untouched.
While I have not shot traditional archery continuously like I did when I was a young lad, I shoot my Black Widow 50# quite a bit, so I can make a good comparison to that.
From just a "shooting" perspective, the Hoyt shoots sooo much nicer to me. I absolutely love the grip, it fits my hand and style perfectly. But the most impressive part was the lack of noise and vibration. No hand shock. I also like the weight. The balance nod goes to my Black Widow, as does the look. The Black Widow is a work of art.
I am really looking forward to more shooting sessions with this bow.
