The SR Swift Black Hawk recurve is one of the sharpest looking, best preforming bows in the Great Plains impressive lineup. The SR stands for "short riser" and Swift because it's well, SWIFT. It's not only beautiful in design and style, but exceptionally smooth, forgiving, and blazing fast. The contoured Swift-grip fits your hand perfectly for total control and the sight window is center-shot allowing greater accuracy from a wide range of arrows. This compact 58" recurve with 16" riser is perfectly suited for shooting heavier arrows with authority. If you are looking for a recurve with graceful classic lines, but demand performance, the SR Swift is a natural choice.

Choose from a left or right hand bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 48½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.

Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. Click here to see our Bow Stringers. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
