      Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

      This bow is gorgeous. I had been hunting for a high quality traditional recurve that I could fire using the thumb release, and this bow is perfect. Prior to this bow I was using a cheap 40# Chinese-made horse bow for practice, and when I got this Kassai I could not believe the improvements. Even though my Magyar Sport is rated at 47#, the draw and release are much easier than on my old 40#. Besides that, after you've figured out the thumb release, the bow is dead accurate (I have never used western release, so can't speak to that). I love it, and consider myself fortunate to have found it.

        Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

        I purchased this bow as a new off hand shooter.I was amazed at how easy it was for me to pick up this new way of shooting . As my friends that shoot off hand told me it would take me some time to get use to. The smooth draw and release was amazing. The Leather work on the bow is seamless and precise. With in a few hours i was grouping on target. The bows design is exotic yet powerful. My father saw the bow for the first time two days after i bought it, and was amazed at the exotic look and power it had. Every one that looks at this Magyar bow asks me what kind of bow is that and were did i get it. I simply say its a blast from the past. And 3Rivers is one of the pleases to get one. I have been surching for a dealer in the states for over three monthes, trying to deside on where i would purches from. 3Rivers is the plase fore sure. It also being a Lajos Kassai bow make it well worth it. Lajos Kassai is a hungarian archer/horse archer and boyer. He is the guy that put 12 arrows on target in 18 seconds from horse back. The product has a reputable name to back the quality of the bow and craftsmanship. This bow is amazing.

          Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

          I have wanted one of these bows for a very long time and was happy to find it at 3Rivers, as getting them directly from Hungary is difficult and expensive. It is a strikingly beautiful bow, with the deep heritage of Hungarian horseman. Incredibly smooth, and accurate, though shooting "off hand" is a new challenge which I am enjoying very much.

          Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

          The Magyar sport is the prototype horse bow of Mr.Kassai Lajos according to Mr. Edwin Gilbert. It is, again according to Mr. Gilbert, the one that Mr. Kassai uses when putting on a demonstration of horse archery. I have had three bows by Mr. Kassai. Two of them Magyar Sports of different draw weights, and the third is, once more according to Mr. Gilbert, an improvement on the Magyar Sport named the Raven, which is essentially the same bow but a bit broader in the limbs. I have been using these bows exclusively since 2004 and love the way they handle (I no longer need a brace on my left forearm because I hardly ever get slapped by the string). One reviewer stated that these bows are inaccurate. I beg to differ with that statement. The fact that you shoot off of your knuckle [no arrow rest or cut out in the handle] does not help with archer's paradox at all, and makes them a bit more difficult to master. But once you learn the technique you'll be surprised at how accurate these bows really are! I can consistantly group a flight of six arrows in a four inch circle @ 20 yards using the gap shooting method and a five inch circle A 28 30 yards. Of course as I stated earlier, it takes time, patience and practice, practice, pratice, because, for me at least, when I started it was a whole new experience.

            Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

            I own several horse bows including the models sold at 3Rivers. I find them very accurate and have out shot bowmen with high end compounds at 40 yards, including balloons blowing along the ground. The key is practice, well matched arrows (the bows are spine sensitive) and smooth release.

              Comments about Magyar Sport Horse Bow:

              The bow itself is very nice with the fine leather and tight string wrapped above and below the handle of the bow itself. The bow itself usually differs in color from bow to bow as I have bought 2 of them. When drawing, the bow feels smooth and natural and when you shoot there is a nice snap to it. The only downside is that it’s inaccurate to some degree.
