A friend of mine asked my if I was looking for a left handed Recurve Bow. YES yes and yes I told him. A guy he knew had it and want to give it away. I'll take it. About a month goes by and he knocks on the door and hands me this nice Browning Explorer 1 with a new string. I but a nock point on it today and shot it in the back yard for the first time. It shoots well I just have have to shoot well. nice little bow set at 43 pounds. just the right wieght.
