  1. Awesome performance bow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2018

    I just got the Black Hunter bow. I saw the videos that Twig Archery has and liked the bow but was skeptical about how good it could be for that kinda money and if it really was just another piece of junk. This bow is not a piece of junk. In fact this is an excellent bow. For the money you are getting a bow that appears to be worth much more. The riser is solid with a little weight behind it for stability. The limbs are made extremely well. No defects on them at all and smooth edges with a nice finish. It’s high performance string capable and this bow shoots quiet and fast. I have several bows and this one is considerably less in cost but match in performance. My new favorite bow. Again this bow is awesome. It’s not junk. You won’t be disappointed with this bow. Give Twig Archery a call if you’re interested. They will hook you up.

  2. Outstanding value and performance! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2018

    I received my Big Rock Black Hunter longbow today from Twig Archery. I just want to share my initial review, and will add more feedback after more time shooting it. First off, customer service at Twig Archery is outstanding! They were very helpful in assisting me in selecting a bow for deer hunting. Shipping was prompt and the packaging was excellent too. I quickly assembled the bow and set the brace height. The free stringer that came with the bow is very good. I purchased a half dozen R2S wood arrows spined for my draw weight of 50#. The Black Hunter longbow shot very well. It is exceptionally quiet with the cat whiskers provided by Twig Archery. I see no need to add any other string silencer to use this bow for hunting. There is no stacking, no hand shock, and the arrows flew straight and true with a solid thud on impact. This bow has plenty of power. It draws smoothly and feels great in the hand, particularly for somebody like me who has a draw length of 27". The center-shot design of the riser and shelf greatly minimize errors in windage. This is a very forgiving bow to shoot! The Big Rock Black Hunter is a keeper. I am excited to practice with it and take it hunting next deer season. I will also continue to use Twig Archery for all of my archery needs. I could not be more pleased with this purchase. You will have a difficult time finding a better bow at two or three times the cost of the Black Hunter.

  3. I could not believe it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jan 2018

    I bought this bow for two reasons. First, as an inexpensive back-up for my regular bow and second, because I want to shoot "3 under" and no matter what I tried on my recurve (padded the string loops, raised brace height, added limb savers, custom bowstring, extra set of string silencers), it is still very, very loud. I talked with John and he recommended this bow. I could not believe it when I shot it! It is smooth, quiet (and it only has one set of cat whiskers on the sting!), fits my hand like a glove, looks great and is quick! (I'm using the same arrows my recurve shoots and it is 2 pounds heavier). I have shot recurves since 1973 (all different makes and models from custom to "standard") but THIS bow has everything I'm looking for in a hunting bow. You may spend more money but I doubt if you will get more bow! (I guess you can tell I'm impressed! Oh, by the way; the recurve is for sale!) Thank you Twig archery!

  4. Started out looking for a first bow for my wife and ended up buying 1 for her and 1 for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2018

    I am so pleased with this bow. I was looking for a starter bow for my wife as she has never shot before. We wanted a bow she could learn to shoot with and maybe upgrade at a later date. Once we found the Black Hunter and read the reviews and watched the Youtube video we ended up ordering her one and I got one for myself. One week in and I am shooting the Black Hunter better than the custom recurve that I have had for 3 years. My wife is getting better every time she shoots. Will be testing the bows at 3D shoots soon. I would highly recommend this bow and Twig Archery as well!!!!

  5. Great Longbow!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2017

    This is a great longbow, period. It shoots fantastic, I've shot carbon and wood through it. No problems. Mine likes a heavier arrow. I don't know what the fps is, but with the bamboo limbs it is very smoothe and fast. It's got a good sight window and the arrow rest (radiused) appears to be cut to center. The riser is between medium and high and a little thick in the middle but not too thick. My hand is fairly large so it feels fine. Took one range session to get used to it. Typical with any new bow. If your intimidated by the price, don't be. This is not a custom bow, and wasn't meant to be. This is a blue collar working mans bow that will shoot as good as almost any custom longbow. If you want a custom longbow, no problem, their are some great bowyers willing to create your dream bow. But if your not worried about the name on your limbs or the manfacturer when you show up at the next 3D shoot or walk in the woods. And your more interested in good performance no matter how much or little you paid. Then you should check this bow out. You won't be disappointed.......Mike

  6. The Black Hunter Longbow is accurate, fast, and a joy to shoot! Should cost much more! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    The Black Hunter reflex-deflex longbow from Twig Archery is an amazing quality bow for an incredibly low price! It is extremely smooth (my previous longbow was also smooth but cost almost $900-hand crafted). The Black Hunter is fast and accurate despite its relatively short length of 60 inches. The bottom line for me is that it is a lot of fun to shoot and performs far above the low price. I am 70 years old and have been enjoying archery since age 7 with many different bows including handcrafted, Bears, Herters, Howatts, etc.
    I found a different bow option that I like even better than my new Black Hunter. I asked Twig Archery to send me 'TWO' Black Hunter bows of the same draw weight so that I can share the fun experience with my sons and friends. 3D archery and field archery with the Black Hunter is super enjoyable, and I do not understand how this bow can be so inexpensive?? The manufacturer and Twig Archery have hit a 'home run' with this amazing longbow.

  7. Black Hunter Bamboo 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2017

    I picked up a Black Hunter after coming across the review done by Twig. It just sounded to good to not give it a try. I have had more than my share of custom and high end longbows and recurves.

    The appearance of fit and finish is what first got my attention. It does just not seem to be possible for a bow at this price....and yet it is. Nothing fancy mind you, just solid and functional.

    So, I ordered a pair of Bamboo limbs off of Twig ( and you won't talk to 2 nicer folks than these) and mounted them up. Really, really, nice. Went 5# heavier (45#) and am shooting 2114's with 145gr. right where I look.

    Guess what bow I will be carrying on our season opener this Saturday?

  8. Fantastic Bow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017

    I very happy with the way this bow shoots. I admit that I was somewhat skeptical at first, but the results can't be denied. My scoring has improved by at least 20% at 20 and 30 yard targets, and my groups have become noticeably tighter than with my 45# Samick Sage. An excellent step up, and great value for the money.

  9. price wise this is the best bow i have seen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    Excellent bow for the money
    The small riser is perfect, grip is a forward style grip small rounded shelf that is cut were its close to your hand

    Bow is well balanced easy to shoot
    Comes with a endless loop string , get ride of it an get a good fast flight Flemish string
    Bolts were a bit hard to get started on the original mounting of the limbs
    Blows the samick or regim type bow away
    The small riser has the feel an style of a high end bow
    Great bow

    Note from Twig Archery: Not everyone knows this, but the string that comes with the bow IS a Dyneema string, which is a "fast flight" string (solid black, not flemish twist) (It is NOT a B50 Dacron string.)

  10. As good as it gets 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    This is a little gem. 50 years of shooting wood bows, Ive owned the lot. Money no problem, Black Widow, Great Northern, A&H, Toelke, Hill, Centaur, Blacktail, Schultz, Silvertip, Tall Tines etc etc etc.
    This bow shoots as well as any of them. Its forgiving, has an easy draw curve, is easy to tune, consistent, quiet and yet costs a fraction of the others. It is well built and looks good to boot. Just a phenomenal bow for a very reasonable price. If you had to own just one bow, this would be it.
    Only criticism is the string, but that's an easy modification.

    Not everyone knows that the string that comes with the Black Hunter Longbow is actually a Dyneema fast flight string with served end loops. It is solid black and not flemish twist. This is NOT a B50 dacron string. We do sell these strings separately.
