Fred Eichler Signature Hoyt Satori Takedown Recurve, 17" RiserItem Number: 254517X
Fred Eichler is the first bowhunter to take all 29 North American big game animals with a recurve bow, completing the elusive Super Slam. Where does Fred go when he wants a takedown recurve that matches his high standards? To Hoyt, where they've worked with him to create the Fred Eichler Signature Hoyt Satori Takedown Recurve. The 17" riser makes this bow ideal as a compact hunting bow.
"I am proud to have worked with Hoyt on my new Signature Series Satori recurve. The features of this bow are the perfect blend of both traditional and modern technology, insuring the bow shoots pure and simple while also providing for advanced tuning and performance. With riser lengths of 17", 19", and 21", as well as three limb length options, the Satori can be configured in 58", 60", 62", 64", or 66". Tiller, centershot, and limb alignment are all adjustable for a perfectly tuned bow that can be customized to fit your individual shooting style. This bow truly has it all."
Riser: 17" machined aluminum. Available in black or buckskin, in right or left handed.

The removable wood grip is thicker than previous Hoyt grips for a more stable hold of the bow in your hand.

|Draw Weights 35#, 40#, 45#, 50#, 55#, 60#, 65#|
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 bow's rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 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.
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. 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).
