Default Cascade bows or Brackenbury

I have a possible trade for my Bob Lee.

One is a Brackenbury Shadow takedown

or a Cascade Night Hawk takedown/ The Riser is solid Micarta.

The Cascade looks prettier, limbs are on the heavy side for me( 60#)
The brack is not as pretty but has 58# limbs and 48# limbs.

Any experience with either bows?

Thanks dave

I own a Cascade TD with a couple sets of limbs...and the micarta riser. I've also shot the Bill Howland Brack. Here's my take... The Cascade, with that heavy solid micarta riser is really r e a l l y sweet in the hand shock department. It's the best bow I own in that area. The down side is that if you're looking for a smoking fast bow, the cascade while decent, doesn't compare with the fastest bows available.

The brackenbury is a nice bow. Pretty fast, reasonable in the hand shock and also well made. I hate to leave ya like this but for myself, I never buy a bow that I haven't first shot...So I'd recommend ya shoot them both and then make your decision. Good Luck.

Tom

The cascade is gone, the brack is an older model made and signed by Jim,

I usually like to shoot a bow first but can't always do that, even so they vary enough sometimes from model to model to still be quite different
