hanback i'm glad to see that you still have a blog the bigbuck zone just isn't the same without you alot of advetising not down to earth working mans blog

sorry i just found your sight today or i would have been with yah the whole time

ian, glad you found me, welcome aboard!! check out all the old posts when you get a chance, thanks!!

Saw the flick last night Mike-

Could not tell you a thing about the bow, but you`re right about how brutal the flick is. .50 cal guns tearing people in half, all the blood you could ever care to see, and graphic depictions of the brutality a standing army inflicts on an unarmed, and helpless people.

Must be my age, I`ll be 51 in April, but it was a bit too intense for me.

He gave two interviews on talk radio this week. One with Glenn Beck and one with Rush. Both times he said how hard it was to find a studio to make the movie because it was too real. Studios didn't like that he was exploring a real life genocide that is going on in Burma, and didn't make the American look bad in the process. Very Interesting.

I just might have to go and check this movie out now. Sounds pretty cool and I'm curious as to what brand of bow it is.

Well, seasons over. Time to get back on with my life. I just near killed myself trying to kill a big deer that somehow eluded me. I guess I can still shoot trap and fish. Just wish it was already turkey season. I like turkey hunting more anyway. I wonder what the people at church tommorow will think when I show up for the first time since December.

Well stated, ian in Wisconsin! That is the truth.

OMG, another Rambo film, i watched the last Die Hard dvd this week end, Bruce and Sly need to retire....whats next, Rocky 41???

Akk I know it's a takedown. I use a recurve so am not up on the others. But- How in the world could he get a smooth and clean release with a grip on the string like that?

Try this link and look at the gallery. It has a good pic of the recurve bow he uses briefly.

I am new to archery and not too good at recognising bows yet. I figure you might be able to identify this. I enjoyed the film so worth a watch, but it is very graphic so be warned! ;-)

I also found this posted on a website:
"Quote:
Have been reliable informed that Rambo had a special bow made just for him (don’t know by whom)
A 20 pound'er no less, seems like he can only pull nicker elastic.


Rubbish.

1. Mr. Stallone is left-handed and shoots bows weighing up to 70 pounds quite regularly. He does not have the best form but he enjoys it.

2. He is using a Hoyt Matrix and a Hoyt Gamemaster in the film he is making right now. He requested the Gamemaster at 70# and traded me for 50# limbs after a few weeks. This apparently has to do with the fact that he's expected to remain at full draw for unreasonable lengths of time during the filming process.


"reliably informed". Pah.

Ah, adding this to answer the original query- the bow used in the second Rambo film was a custom built Hoyt Spectra with glass limbs and Omega wheels, which transfer the cables laterally during the power stroke, obviating the need for a cable guard (if you see how the bow is carried in the film you understand why this was a good thing).

The commercially available bow package (which included the Streamlight flashlight stabilizer, a custom "survival knife" with compass and necessities kit, take down arrows made by Easton, and a few other odds and ends including a rather well-thought out backpack for the whole thing) used laminated limbs and normal wheels, with a cable guard.

A complete kit in good condition fetches a ridiculous amount of money these days.

The bow used in the third film was a Hoyt ProVantage." This was on:
