Hello, i am from the UK and currently shoot a Merlin XV at 30 inch DL and 60 lb with Viper Cams. I love Bow Hunting (not legal here so travel) and National Field Archery Society Shooter, 3D and general Field shooter. I have owned many bows from multiple manufactures but kept coming back to Merlin. I have had 5inch Brace Height monster bows but the XV with its 8 inch is still fast enough for me. Enjoy tuning bows almost as much as shooting but only if it is tunable. Shooting Light speeds 400 29 inch with 65g points and spin wing vanes(unusual choice for 3D but i love them).
