Default Hoyt Tiburon

Anyone own a Tiburon?
How does it compare with the other hoyts?

I want to add one to my collection..
Looking for feed back.

I don't have a dorado come to think of it.
Something about the Tiburon catches my eye.
Gamemasters look reflexed and don't beckon to me as much.

I've got one. I can't offer a comparison to other metal riser bows as it's the only one i've had. But, it's smooth to my 28.5" draw, and i'm way more accurate with it than any of the wooden bows i've owned, and that's quite a few! It's pretty quiet for a recurve, especially considering i shoot light arrows. I shoot it with a 12" stab but it balances okay even without that. The finish is bulletproof, it's still unmarked despite being dragged around the woods 2 or 3 times a week for a couple of years. It's my best bow, even my Super K hasn't been used since i got it.

The Tiburon was my first ever trad bow.
As way too many men, I started overbowed with 50lbs. And to make things worse the dealer didn't have a clue and sold me 340 sine arras with 125 points...

After a loong time of struggle, my form was consistent enough to tune, shot great with 400 spine, 75 HIT inserts and a 250 point.
Shot it 40-50 arrows a day for three years, and it still looked as new when I passed it on. Also had the original quiver, works great.
Highly recommended as a no fancy, reliable working bow!

Well they must be decent as I don't see many come up for sale.

I had one and it was a decent bow

I did sell it and I've only sold a few bows in my life so that says something

Yeah, it's says I took interest a little late to get that one. Lol
If I find one For a good price I will get it.
There's one on AT but only a 62".

I remember seeing my first one several years ago in factory camo and drooled.
