Mystery Bow - any suggestions???

#1 Post by blu-dog » Fri Nov 02, 2012 11:11 pm

Recently came across this bow... Just wondering what it is. Wondering if it is a mass produced model or bowyer created? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Its probably either English or Aussie with the spelling for centreshot, as yanks use centershot.Maybe not factorymade.

I'm pretty certain Centreshot was a mass produced bow. I'm not sure about this but I have a faint memory they were made in one of the Asian countries similar to Whagot and Samick bows. Hopefully someone will know for sure. In any case it looks a nice bow.

I did a bit more research last night - and found an obsure metion of "Centreshot" on another forum - it also mentioned that they may be Korean manufactured.

Thanks for the info fellas! I've decided not to buy it, but am able to pick it up and arrange freight if anyone here is interested in it!

Hey Paul, its made in Korea alright, The company started as Wahgok then changed its name to True Aim then to Center Shot and now I belive they are called Samick. Ive owned all of them and love them as very smooth bow, up until I got my Schafer I was shooting a Wahgok for the last 15 years. If its for sale let me know mate.

The way those number 5s is written looked very familiar to me from a Samick takedown I once owned.
