Testimonials

  • I’ve had strangers at shoots come up and ask me where I got my Merlin…it’s just a fast sweet shooting bow.

    Todd Ruegner, PA
  • Not only is my bow a joy to shoot, it’s a work of art when its displayed.

    Cory Laux
  • Its fine lines instantly felt perfect in my hand and my shooting improved right away. It’s a quiet, smooth drawing, accurate and fast bow that sends a heavy wooden shaft downrange with authority!
