Goin back to the basics. Wes Wallace is a custom bow maker that lives approx. 12 miles from me in Beavercreek. Eyecandy!!! But I cant seem to find a forum or anything or anybody who has shot and or hunted with them. Any body????

I shoot a Wes Wallace longbow and LOVE it! Get the takedown option if you buy one. I actually have two of his longbows but my brother has my other one in ND with him. I have the 66" model. Nice bows! Can't say enough good about them.

I also had a wes wallace Royal longbow, very nice bow, smooth and quick, sold it cause it was a little to low in draw weight for me....

You are comparing the Black Widow and the Wallace...so I am assuming you are looking at recurves? As a personal observation, I think the Black Widows are plain ugly! I know a lot of guys love them...just don't look like a bow to me. Wes builds a great bow for the money. If you go on Stickbow.com you will get lots of opinions. You should call Wes and drive over to his shop and shoot one. A lot of it is personal perference. One guy might like the grip on a riser and another guy can't live with it!

Snag may be a bit harsh when he calls Black Widows that awful name. He is however correct when he says to give Wes a call and go shoot a few if you have the Opportunity. My buddy has a Wes Wallace and says its the best bow he has ever owned. It is kinda easy on the eyes also. In MY opinion you could buy a better looking bow than a Black Widow, but then (All that glitters is not gold.) I happen to think that in the the right hands my Widow Walks the Walk!!!!!!!

The best advice is to buy what fits you right.

However...Wes builds a masterpiece of a bow and I HIGHLY recommend you give him a call and visit his shop. He has a range you can shoot some demo bows on and I'd almost guarantee you'll leave with less money in your pocket! :)

He's also one of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life and that makes it so much easier to make a down payment! :)

Wes bulids one heck of a bow. Black widows are faster IMO. Did not like their long bows at all. Wes's bows are definetly more purdy, and with him you can get one that is custom to you. Black widows are all the same not real custom Just my two cents.

I killed my first recurve elk and buck with a Wallace Mentor..

Go Wallace...

W.P.

Is Osama in that cave too (lol)?

Everybody knows you can't go wrong with a W.W. bow.

Follow the sage advice you have been given and get a widow later when you get your inheritance.

Sorry about calling them ugly...just my opinion.

I agree with BHUNTNELK. If you can go with some extra cash look up Norm. I have 2 of his and one on order. For me he makes the perfect bow! Craftsmanship is top notch and they shoot great.

wes is a great guy and builds a great bow. seeing as he's just down the road from you i think it would be a good way to start. he can help you with arrows, shooting and other stuff. oh yeah, did i mention that he builds a great bow?

The only bow that I ever experienced that drew and shot smoother than my Black Widow was a Habu. Then one day I found myself up above the Clackamas walking down the road with another recurve shooter who carried an identical size and weight recurve as I, and it looked good too. That may have been the smoothest drawing bow that I have ever held. It was a Wes Wallace. The one Blacktail bow that I held looked great but stacked bad. The two elk I killed didn't seem to mind the looks of my Black Widow.

Here's a recent purchase.... WW brown Stealth model with Bubinga accents, checkered grip and antler tips.

180 fps with 9.4 gpp, 28" draw and a B50 dacron string. Wes shipped the bow with a D97 and I haven't even tried it yet. In the past with other bows, a D97 has yielded 3-5 fps more. With the B50 though, my WW is whisper quiet, literally. It's the quietest bow I have owned/shot.

I sure dont have any problem shooting my liberty longbow.Allen did a great job with it.I shot a recurve for years and this longbow is hard to beat.I would suggest shooting a few different bows before dropping the cash,get the best you can afford from the get go and you will save money in the long run.
