Name this bow...
Let's play name that bow...
looks like about a 2014 Hoyt?
I could slap a couple REDWRX stickers on it if you want to tell me how awesome it is! :)
^^^ now that's funny right there!!
Definitely on the fugly side, even makes a Mathews look ok...
Could also be a Jim Cox Black Ram or Martin Black Ram II....thinking the Martin Jaguar version came first though.
Overdraws were the "buzz" in the early 80's. I seriously considered the handle forward design before settling on a shoot through riser design. Can you name this one?
2011 Rytera Seeker
2011 Rytera Seeker
I'm thinking Martin. Apparently Martin thought the concept was worth reviving in 2011 in their Rytera line with the "Seeker"
The initial, top picture looks like a Browning or Cabelas bow.
Looks like an old McPherson from the 80's.
My guess, the bow is a 1984-85 Martin Jaguar.
Looks like a mouse ate the fetching off the arrows.
Yep, lots of history in the development of the perfect compound bow.
I am going to guess that pav's pic is of a York S-T-O (shoot-through-overdraw).
Pav’s pic , York STO, I had one! It was so ugly but different.
I was guessing the same as boothill.
Brotsky- only if you're wearing kuiu gear (and I know you are)!!! LOL your post made me chuckle...
Id drown it before I named it
I don’t have a clue but I’ll bet Ted Nugent had two of them. :-)
OK, ELKMAN, what do I win for "naming" the bow correctly.
Cobie33 and Errorhead got the York STO (shoot through overdraw) correct. Not sure exactly....but bought mine new between 1982-1984. Not a bad bow for it's time....once you got used to loading an arrow! LOL
I’m with pav and Paul on the jaguar.
Back in the 80s, I used to shoot with a guy who accidentally got shot by his sister with a shotgun in his left forearm when he was a kid. He didn’t have much lateral strength in that forearm, so he rigged up a strap to the riser of his jaguar that went around his wrist to stabilize things. He won a lot of tournaments, plus killed a pile of deer and several elk.
Are they wooden cams? Feel like that cant be possible, but Lookin on my phone, so pics are pretty fuzzy....
It's a Jim Cox black ram. Late 80's give away is the slotted yoke wheel, and the clip holding the buss cable to the yoke. That clip was an after thought of some mfg's after Mel Stanislawski sold the roller guard to Martin.
After comparing pictures of all three extended handle bows, I agree with Bob, it is a Jim Cox Black Ram. The Martin Jag, had a slimmer riser and a slightly different extended handle. my best, Paul
The Jag had round wheels. I agree that this is a Jim Cox Black Ram.
Jaguar didn’t have a wooden riser either, correct?
Perhaps a Martin Black Ram from around 1987 ???
Martin probably made it for Cox.
The Black Ram with Wristcutter Wriser Technology!
Would be fun to shoot it.
...maybe, sort of.
