Well I am way late to this party but I’m glad to finally be here! I’ve looked at Black Widow bows since the early 90’s when I first started shooting a recurve and picked up a copy of traditional bowhunter magazine. I finally pulled the trigger on a used 1996 SAIII. Perfect draw weight and length for what I was looking for. I received it, looked at it for 48 hours and boxed it up and sent it back to Black Widow for them to refinish it for me. I’m having that leather grip removed as well. Can’t wait to tune an arrow set up and hopefully hunt with it this fall!
