So I have a half dozen Grizzly Stick Alaskan's I had built to mirror my POC's that I'm shooting. Long story short, shot 4 of them, 2 blew up on the first shots. One on a rock, ok, understandable, the second hitting high on the target and hit the plastic handle. Now I've hit the plastic handle a bunch with my POC's and never had an issue. Had these Grizzlies built for my bear hunt in May, thinking I'll take my POC's instead. I've put over a 1000 shots into this doz POC's I have and broke 3, but one jsut blew the knock off, so, broke 2. both the Griz Stick snapped clean in the same spot, 1/4" back from the end of the brass insert. I've only snapped one POC, that was a big rock stump thumpin, the other was a split shaft stump thumpin as well.
All out of a 55lb recurve
