A few years back I was at the Compton rendezvous and I was lucky enough to meet and visit with the late tom parsons of kim sha archery. I was shooting a kramer built big five and I had my schulz back quiver full of wood arrows so when I visited his booth we had plenty to talk about. He wanted me to try one of his bows out and without hesitation I was headed to the practice bails. I remember his longbow having a cedar limb core with caramel colored glass. It was a real looker. It was in the high 40s at 27 and at that time I was shooting fairly heavy and my arrows were spined 70/75. I didn’t think I was going to get good arrow flight at all Because of the arrows being too stiff. I was wrong on that account. Those arrows flew perfectly and boy that bow was fast. Right before I visited tom and was trying out a bowyers (no longer in business) latest carbon backed hill style creation and it was 62@28 and toms Kim sha shot circles around that bow with lower draw Weight. I’m talking hand shock and speed wise. I was amazed. I always wanted one of Tom’s bows but they were out of my price range. Tom was saying he used to shoot schulz bows and they were the influence behind his hill style bows. Sadly tom passed away recently. I heard the man was a heck of a shot and a true longbowman. I was lucky enough to pick up one his bows a few days back. This bow is just beautiful. It’s built very very well with a slight string follow. This bow is 66” and 48@29. It’s a little lighter than I like but i couldn’t pass the deal up. The bow is smoking fast and quiet and the grip is awesome. This one really rips, especially for 46-47 pounds at my 28” draw. Enjoy the pics. I have something special to share with you guys hopefully tomorrow! Stayed tuned!
