It is not very often that you see a bow that could be called either a recurve or a sling shot. But, that is what the T15 Pro from Gearhead Archery is.
Having had a chance to try out the bow at the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Trade Show, I was impressed with what I saw. It took me a few shots to get the hang of sighting it in, but once I did, the arrows were hitting their mark.
Of course, this would not be a bow for hunting big game animals, but it is perfect for small game hunting, bowfishing, or just playing in the back yard.
The T15 Pro, or Slingblade, is reasonably priced compared to other bowfishing rigs, and the lightweight construction is an added bonus.
The T15 Pro is a hybrid of a recurve bow and a sling shot. It incorporates its power from the combination of composite limbs and rubber tubing. The T15 draws and shoots much like a traditional recurve bow. With the compact size, weight and handle, it’s like an extension of your arm. It is easy to shoot and very accurate with minimal practice. You can shoot normal arrows with a release or with fingers. The T15 Pro ships at a 29 pound draw weight at a 28″ draw. We have shot it as fast as 234 FPS! The T15 Pro comes with a Whisker Biscuit rest, a tied D-Loop and a bracket to mount your AMS or Cajun bowfishing reel. All the components are black anodized aluminum, stainless steel fasteners and built to last forever! The new T15 Pro has a built in roller system to reduce the wear on your power tubes and help with a consistent draw cycle. Whether you are into small game, bowfishing or just shooting for fun. The T15 Pro by Gearhead Archery will get the job done! See More.
