    Your opinions of the Barnett Safari compound bow please.

    Following on from http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=758345 I have been offered a Barnett Safari compound bow. It is most probably nowhere near as good a bow as the Martin Scepter II but I would be very grateful for your opinions.



    The box says Barnett Safari but there is no mention of 'Safari' on the limbs or anywhere else on the bow.

    The specifications as mentioned on the lower limb are as follows:

    Peak weight: 60lbs
    Draw length: 30"
    Draw length range: 29" to 31"
    String length: 36"
    Serial number: FY 116 92

    Attached are a few pictures for your reference.

    Thanks.

    Rustam

    Smile 1980's Era Bow

    Rustam Bama,
    This bow looks like a 1980's Martin Warthog bow that I own. The only difference I see is the finish and mine has a stainless steel cable guide
    on it. It's not a bad bow, but not as nice as the newer compond bows
    of today. The hold on my 60# bow is 50% of draw weight on most of the newer bows your holding only 20%. It would be a great starter bow as mine was. The value in the USA is probably around $100.00 for a bow of this era.
    Hope this is of some help to you and great shooting.

    Regards,
    CUSTOMNW

    If you get the bow realy cheap you can buy it to practice and for understanding how a bow works but for a longer time you wont have fun in archery with this bow!!!!

    goto an archery proshop.

    Purchase new pigtail cables (metal cable coated in plastic).

    Have a new Dacron bowstring built so your draw length is correct.
