The "Solak", Paragon's short bow named for the archer bodyguard of the Ottoman sultans, has been upgraded.
As a craftsman Robert Pozderka is continually refining and renewing the materials and design of his bows but sometimes that process requires a leap rather than a step. Here we are then: time to leap.
Robert's goal is to create a better more authentic shooting experience for the archer. It was there in the very popular Solak from the start but what's improved? Well, new materials mean it's heavier in the hand, more stable and there is no denying it's subtly prettier lines.
Of course the Ottoman short bow design favours function over form so yes, it bends in all the right places like a horn bow, avoiding undue stress around the grip and shoots fast, thumping arrows into the boss. So, in a nutshell, like before only more so!
