In 2005 I was at Compton shopping with my wife for a bow for her. She shot everything there and she loved the BW PSA. As she shot I decided to try one for myself. I had never even tried one. Like my wife I was immediately hooked. I waited 2 weeks to bring it up but I mentioned to my wife I really liked the BW. She said I should order one. I did the next day.
I ordered a PSA Autumn Oak with stained boo limbs. I’ve taken deer, bear, caribou and wild boar. I still hunt with it and it still looks great.
My first BW was in 1987, a GB one piece, I had a CJ that I sold due to an injury and couldn’t shoot it. I hated to see it go and it left on an eleven year trip around the country through various owners. Last year I saw it for sale and bought it back. I’m shooting it again now and it won’t be leaving again. PA’s are my favorite and I’ve owned a few that I should have kept, there might be another in the future.
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!
