The hard handle, (the one that represents the bow riser), needs to be larger in diameter. Preferably 1.25"-1.75" Diameter. Recovering from surgery, I needed something to keep my muscles tuned. I might should have gotten the heavier (Safari) size. Even though I shoot 60# Compounds and 40#-55# Traditional gear, I think the heavier model would have served me better than the medium one, which seems too light to produce draw weights over 50 pounds. But I still think this is a fantastic tool to stay tuned up with and to help beginner archers in teaching and tuning their bodies to shoot archery. All instructors should utilize this tool in their curriculum.

The Bowfit is only a little better than my current homemade exerciser made from some 2" PVC and a couple of bungees. The tubing length is easy to adjust but leaves you with a piece of tubing that often gets in the way. Once you figure out a comfortable setup (almost no instruction is provided) it is a reasonable exerciser. However, I bought the "Safari" weight and there is no way with two tubes it is anything like 80 lbs, maybe fifty max. Going to a tripled tube gives an uneven feel to the draw. The bowhand grip does not look like the pictures. It is basically a foam covered piece of PVC and was very disappointing. The Bowfit was worth buying once but next time I sould use some of the design features for the tubing adjustment and strap it to a homemade, shaped wooden handle for a more realistic grip.

    Comments about Bowfit Archery Exercise Tool:

    No-nonsense tool for archery. The ability to practice draw and build or maintain archery specific muscles, regardless of conditions/situation (i.e. indoors, apartment, bad weather, off season, etc.) is important. As a returning advocate to traditional archery hunting, I needed a way to build my strength back up to be able to pull the weight I felt comfortable for taking gake - this was the tool for that job.

    Comments about Bowfit Archery Exercise Tool:

    Use while watching TV. It does the job, BUT adjustment is iffy the tube tends to slip while drawing and there is really no way of knowing what weight you are drawing. I tripled up and it still was less than the 60lbs of my bow.

      Comments about Bowfit Archery Exercise Tool:

      This seems to be well-made, but there are no instructions as to how to use it, other than a couple small photos on the packaging that do not help. No way to figure out how to make the resistance greater. Was hoping for a 3 Rivers video guide, but no luck there, either.

          Comments about Bowfit Archery Exercise Tool:

          This product does work and I use it regularly. Some creativity is required to "adjust it". My constructive criticism is that it is difficult to maximize its usefulness because it is inherently imbalanced between the three "legs" of the banding.

          well i got the safari model on my trek from 70-140# and i finally broke it trying to get it to where i couldnt hit draw anymore i maxed it out and doubled the tube and went to draw it back and it finally blew up on me i think i was 2x over what it said it was rated for so for normal humans this should last a long long time...boss said it sounded like a .45 when it blew

            This is a good product to use to strengthen muscles that are used for archery. It is handy to use as I can get my exercise while watching baseball on the TV. A lot more fun than pushups.

                Comments about Bowfit Archery Exercise Tool:

                This may not be practical, but it would be nice if marks were placed on the tubing to note approximate pull strength. The idea is for the mark to be lined up with the hole through which the tube passes.
