    Anyone see anything like this before? Modern slingshot? I think he needs more draw length and needs to work on anchor and this the bend in his bow arm.

    I've seen it on AT and I think it's German, maybe? They were talking about it in the crossbow forum because some of the companies are starting to use reverse draw.

    I think the thing posses a safety risk as the limbs will be flinging back towards the shooter... I would hate to see what would happen if one of those limbs came apart with all that force at full draw.

    Looks like a spun version of the Liberty 1.

    http://www.libertyarchery.com/

    I would love to try one if there was a dealer who had one in stock, but not willing to drop between $700 and $850 to try it out even though they have a full refund policy for trial.

    It looks a lot like a cable guide bar...only straight...with a grip and an arrow rest on it.

    Is it possible that it's a custom jobbie, or is it a production bow? I looked on the web for over 2 hours last night. I came across 2 little bows, but none like that one. There's the one mentioned above, and another tiny bow at www.drawloc.com

    I couldn't find ANYTHING with the limbs on backwards, though. :frusty:

    Good job QSA!

    Imagine shooting a bow so techologically advanced and so smooth shooting. that after your first shot, 'you wonder' if you actually just shot the bow. Made in Montrose CO. USA by the Reverse Energy Bow Company. Machined from 6061-T aluminum and come with a limited lifetime warranty. Stop in today and see this bow for yourself!
