  • Q:

    What stringer would you recomend for this type of bow?

      A:

      This bow is designed for the step through method any traditional stringer does not work on this type of bow

      A:

      First FYI, 3Rivers sells this bow as the "Magyar Sport Horse Bow" but to my knowledge Kassai no longer produces the Magyar Sport. What is sold here is the Kassai Raven.
      In any case, I don't use a stringer for this type of bow. I string mine in the traditional way that Kassai himself does as depicted in his book "Horseback Archery" (2002). Here's how to string this bow if you are right handed:
      Hold the unstrung bow upright in your right hand by the top siyah (that's the solid wood "ear" with the string nock). The string should be nocked in the lower siyah with the free end of the string in your left hand, grasping so that some of the top loop if free and open.
      Grasp the top siyah in your right hand below the nock but above the wrap, with the siyahs curving to the right. Hold the bow and the string so they make a V with the string on the left and the bow on the right, still curving rightward.
      Take a half step forward through the V with your right leg. Angle the bow behind the right leg and in front of your left leg so the bottom siyah hooks in front of the left leg's shin.
      So now you should be standing with the bow threaded between your legs. The grip of the bow should be pressing into the back of your upper right thigh and the top siyah is resting in the palm of your right hand. Push forward with your right hand, bending the bow.
      There should only be three points of contact between your body and the bow: your left shin on the lower siyah, the back of your right thigh with the grip, your right hand with the upper siyah. No part of your body should be touching the bow limbs.
      Push forward with your right hand. Bend the bow only as far as you need to bring your left hand with the top string loop to the right hand's siyah. Slide the loop over the tip of the siyah and into the nock point. Ease off with your right hand so the string holds the bent bow. Take your right leg out of the bow and check the knock points before you start shooting.
      Enjoy.

  • Q:

    What are the best type of arrows to use on a bow like this?
    Asked on 9/8/2013 by CLS

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I don't believe there is a best type of arrow for this bow or any other traditional bow. I've shot cedar, spruce, bamboo, and carbon from this bow (which is a Kassai Raven, by the way, not a Magyar Sport).
      As long as your arrows are cut and tuned to the your draw length and the bow's draw weight, you can shoot any shaft you like.
      That said, I now prefer carbon just because they are more durable. My Raven is 54# at 30'', so I was breaking a lot of wood shafts, even bamboo, if I hit anything hard.
      If you are going to shoot in Kassai's style, holding arrows in your bow hand, you will likely prefer narrower shafts, so for durability I think that points to bamboo or carbon.

      A:

      I am currently using easton legacy 2218 alunimum arrows. But I may switch
      to carbon. They are both great to use due to the fact that getting use to
      shooting off hand is not easy.

  • Q:

    I have been an archery hunter for 12 years now and currently am geared with a compound bow that is around an 80 lb draw. I have been wanting to go traditional for a couple years now and was wondering if this bow is suitable for hunting big game like elk and deer? And what size would you recommend based on my compounds draw weight?
    Asked on 8/27/2013 by Roby from Asotin, WA

    2 answers

    • A:

      It depends. what is the hold weight of your compound bow? because with this bow it maintains a constant weight throughout the draw. so then you might want 50 or 60 but if you do, don't expect to be able to shoot much at a time because no matter how strong you are it will wear you out fast. But 50 or 60 # would be enough to kill an elk or deer but for an elk you might want 60 or 65 just to be on the safe side.

      If your going to hunt big game then I would get the 55#

  • Q:

    I am new to archery so I apologize if this is silly but is this a bow that can be kept strung for extended periods of time- like a week or more at a time?

      A:

      I do not keep my bow strung while not in use. It is my personal preference.
      Also better for the bow to only be strung when in use . It is also easy
      enough to un-string and string quickly.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Hey there; I would be happy to help out. The bow can be strung for long periods of time- a week should be no problem. Temperature, on the other hand, can cause problems. I wouldn't recommend leaving it strung in a hot place (like your garage) for more than a couple of days at most. Keeping it indoors while it's strung shouldn't damage it at all.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Hello Back,
      I myself am not the most learned archer - I like to keep all my bows (traditional long bows or the horse bow) unstrung until I go shooting (The Magyar bow I will string prior to leaving for the range and when I make it back home). It is a little tricky to string/unstring but I use the bend the bow between the legs method - works good on a carpeted surface for additional friction on the floor.
      Hope this Helps

    would this be a good "small game" hunting bow? biggest would be coyote?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You can use any bow for small game. It has more to do with the appropriate weight. For small game you can use 40# to 50# and get good success.

      I would go with a light poundage. You don't want to get over bowed.

  • Q:

    Do you have to use the thumb draw technique with a horse bow, if not is preferable or simply a matter of preference?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You do not have to use a thumb ring to shoot the Magyar Sport. A personal preference. It is believed that you get an extremely clean release using the thumb ring method of shooting though.
