  • Q:

      A:

      This bow is for shooting off horse back, not the best beginner bow

      A:

      I am both a basic and advance archery instructor and although I believe that tens of thousands have learned basic archery with a Korean bow, I would recommend transition to be with a more "western" type of recruve bow.  For one thing, the Korean bow does not have an arrow rest (no big deal), so I built one on the left side. I also shoot mine with a string loop so I can use a mechanical release. I like the small size of the Korean bow which is great for hunting off a tree stand.  I really like my Kaya bow and have truly enjoyed learning to master this amazing small bow. Good luck and if I can be of further help, my email is ****@***.***.

      As long as you have at least a little experience shooting a bow, then yes this is suitable for beginners

      A:

      I think this bow would be great for a beginner. If you are worried about
      the draw, get a lower poundage. But this is a sweet, responsive bow that I
      think you will really like!

      This bow is covered in an embossed leather, and all the materials used to
      make it seem to be natural. It is really a beautiful work of art, besides
      being a very fast and powerful weapon.

  • Q:

    Right now I'm shooting a 45#(AIM) recurve at 27", and an adirondak longbow at 45#... Would the kaya feel about the same ?? Also is there any handshock, when shooting ??

      A:

      Howdy! I shoot a 45 lbs long bow, and a 35 lbs long bow at times. I enjoy shooting various horse and Japanese bows as well. The Kaya doesn't have any shock that I know of. What I did notice is that unless you have some tough skin on your left hand (I am right handed) you can get feather burn. I wear the three finger left hand glove which they sell at 3 rivers. Or cut a piece of leather and put it on the Kaya. Doesn't look as nice though. Personally speaking for some reason it seems my long bow is more accurate than the Kaya. The Kaya is fun to shoot though. Hope this helps.
      Have a good one!

      A:

      45# is 45# regardless of the bow. Some bows will be smoother than others but the end result will be the same. These bows are pretty smooth and really quick. There is a little hand shock, but a good set of silencers and some heavier arrows will help.

    Can the kaya korean bow be shot both left & right handed?

      A:

      Yes. But be VERY aware that if you use a thumb ring you will need longer arrows. I was given not so good advice and I bought the arrows that they recommended - but the arrows were about 2" too short!

      A:

      Hello! Yes, you can shoot this bow right or left handed. You have to shoot it off knuckle though. SO...it might be helpful to wear a glove to protect the top of your hand. You can get these gloves from Three Rivers for a good price, they are not expensive. The bow is fun to shoot. But like anything else you have to practice, practice, practice! The glove allows you to have more Bow time and less burns!
      Cheers!

      Yes u can shoot the kaya Korean bow with either hand. It is a pleasure to shoot no matter which hand u use. Also make sure to get a y glove to protect your shooting knuckles, or u will cut them open with the fletchings. Hope this helps.

      A:

      If the bow did not come with an instruction to execute stringing, go to YouTube and search under Kaya Bow. I prefer unstrung.

      A:

      put the unstrung bow between your legs (if your a righty then place the curve of the bow towards your right). Hook the string to the back end and with your right hand bend the bowback from the right towards the left with the other end of the string in your left hand until it reaches the other end and hook it on. The bow should be unstrung when being stored.

      With this style bow you will need to do the step through method. It is very difficult to describe, I recommend looking at a few Youtube videos.

      A:

      I bought my kaya ktb bow about a month ago and it had the usual leather
      wrapping and paisley pattern pressed to it. This bow looks like some sort
      of customized bow. In fact, the only thing that appears to be left
      unfettered from the original kaya ktb is the string and the rubber
      silencers at the top and bottom limbs (maybe even the rubber silencers look
      replaced). Everything pretty much seems to be customized.

  • Q:

    Is it better to leave unstrung after every use, or is it okay to leave strung for display? How long is it safe to leave strung?

      A:

      I normally will not leave my modern longbows and recurves strung over a week, unless they are getting normal (almost daily) use. If going to be a period of non-shooting, I unstring my bows. This being a primitive bow, you might want to leave it unstrung when not shooting all the time. It is best to not put pressure on the bow tips when not being used.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You can leave the bow strung for the most part. You will just want to make sure that you do not lean it in a corner or something similar. It is possible for the limbs to twist.

      Answered on 6/25/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I'm not a bow expert but I have heard that keeping it strung in a climate-controlled place for a while (weeks) is no harm to the bow. A hot humid garage may not be a good place. Also for long term storage, unstring it.
      Hope this helps.

  • Q:

    Will putting camo tape on the limbs effect the preformance of this bow?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Any time you add weight to the limbs of the bow you will alter the performance. Depending on how much weight you add it may be a small enough difference that you would not notice.
