    I'm utterly smitten! The Predator Classic is, without a doubt, the best bow I've ever shot! It's accurate, extremely solid and beautifully made. I've spent as much time staring at it as I have shooting it.

    I have the extreme misfortune of being saddled with a thirty-and-one-half-inch draw length. This usually involves certain liabilities. Most notably, I experience stacking with ALL BOWS!

    When a manufacturer claims, "No Stacking!" I automatically think, "Meh. Maybe this bow will only stack a little bit!"

    The Predator DOES! NOT! STACK! Period-- Amen! I've never shot anything like it.

    At first, as I was sending the first coupla dozen arrow home, I thought the Predator was very nice but maybe not any better than my other bows. But as I began to commit to looking at the bow honestly, all the nuances began to emerge.

    The most important aspect of the way this bow shoots is its accuracy. With my other takedown, my groups at 15 yards were usually about six to eight inches across. With the Predator, I'm consistently rattling arrows with almost every shot! I'm in love!

    I could go on and on, but you should get the point by now.

    Thank you, Hunter's Niche! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    the bow felt light and cheap like an old Samick I used to own. Single pin locater in the limbs were not tight. The riser had a hair line crack running around the grip. Recieved it on a Friday, sent it back Monday.
    Next bow I buy I'll talk directly with the bowyer before it's made, after it's made and before it's sent. And it won't be a predator.

        Comments about Predator™ Takedown Recurve:

        What an outstanding bow. I have read many of the reviews and must still admit I had hesitations to purchase the hunter over a bob lee or a widow, Very simple to set up, and within the first few minutes of shooting it and dialing it in from out of the box...well, I'll let the photos tell the rest.
        I won't be putting this bow down any time soon, and It will be a long while before I find another bow that can match this one. I will however, have to replace some arrows.

          Where has this bow been all my life!? Well being that I've only been shooting for 5 months that's a silly question to ask yet I find myself asking it every time I use it. It is stunning to look at. I can't get through one session at my local range without people asking me about it. They are all drawn to this bow. It shoots like a dream. Super smooth and incredibly accurate. The grip is a thing of beauty in itself. Fits so well in my hand and the shelf is right there. My only regret is not being able to shoot it every day. Well worth the money.

          Service and delivery comments:

          3Rivers is THE best. There are no 2 ways about it. All contents promised were received in pristine condition. There is simply no other place I would shop for my recurve needs. Thank you 3Rivers. You have my business forever.

              Just had the bow a few days I've gotten better day by day. Impressed with it like no other bow I have owned or made. It shoots extremely fast and quiet. It fits ones hand naturally. 3 River did a great job packing it. And beleive me, the box looked like it was accordianed more than once.
              Good Job. Great Bow!

                      I have a #55 Classic Predator, and I have to say it's the smoothest drawing recurve I've ever shot. It feels more like I'm drawing a #50 bow! Very easy to tune, throws a heavy arrow with authority puts 'em exactly where you aim. I'm sold on these excellent bows.

                          Just got my Predator Hunter DX this past weekend. Only had time to shoot about 30 arrows, but I was very impressed with the few arrows I shot. I shoot instinctive (even my compound, which I don't really care for), and have been shooting for about a year and a half. I consider this to be my first serious trad bow since getting my Samick Sage as my first bow. So here's my first impressions, and I have only my Sage to compare it to.

                          The Predator is 51# at 28", so I'm pulling about 56-57#(est.) at 30", and it pulls about as easy as my Sage at about 50# full draw. Definitely more zip & consistency on the arrow flight. I'm not one of those guys knocking arrows out to 30 yd, but I'm happy if I can get 4-5 out of 6 on a 8" paper plate out to 20 yd. Didn't expect a whole lot with my new bow & first time use, but was getting some to knock, and was definitely impressed with the grouping for my first experience. I shot from 20 yd. on my last round, and aimed at a small orange spec as a focal point. Two of the six arrows knocked right on the spec, and the rest were in w/in about a 10" plate, so I'm very happy with my initial results.

                          I do like how the shelf basically sits on the hand and feel it adds to the accuracy, though my fletching did draw some blood, but I don't mind for the improved feel & accuracy. Guess I could build the rest up, or toughen up...haven't decided yet. It's heftier than the Sage, and feels rock solid in the hand with no hand shock at at all. I'm sure the heft and the bending point of the limbs being further back on the bow hand also help reduce torque.

                          I actually spoke to Ron (bowyer) earlier in the week. Told him I was looking for a solid performer, and that I wasn't into having the prettiest bow since it will be used for hunting & 3D. He suggested the DX, and also recommended the 62" limbs for my draw length. Said to just let him know if I have any concerns. Real cool guy. I'm entering a 3D fun shoot in 2 weeks. I just want to have fun, but it would be nice shoot well too, and I'm sure this bow will let me do both.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Ordered on 4/30 & arrived on 5/4. Process and delivery time was 4 days to Hawaii, and it arrived in great condition. Was a little scared when I saw the box a little dented, but everything was ok.

                          3Rivers never let's me down.
