Default Browning Barracuda

Does anyone have one of these??? If so Pro's & Con's please...
I bought one a couple of days ago, it is a tiny bow, extremely light, put a retriever on it..
I will let you all know if I have good luck with it, but it seem to be a real nice bow..

I'd think a big guy like you would have problems with finger pinch on such a short axle to axle bow and no let-off.

I've heard you should keep the bow closer to the mid to upper peak weight range. If the bolts are backed out too far the limbs will blow off. Otherwise, a lot of people love them.

I agree with Christine on this one....I bought one and didn't get too far into it before I got rid of it; primarially because of finger pinch. I ended up getting a PSE Kingfisher recurve.

I suppose it would be a good bow if you plan on shooting with a release.
