Hamskea Hybrid Hunter Pro
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
A recent purchase and have only shot a few times, so this is not a long term viewpoint. It was medium easy to set up. However, I did have a few issues. One is that the launcher arm did not have enough pressure to stay all the way up without an arrow on it, and with an arrow on it, it sagged further. This was before I even tied it off to my limb. After a fair amount of internet research, I found out how I could adjust the internal spring to provide more tension to raise the launcher arm. It was an easy fix, once I found out the right information. But it took a little time because there is an internal spring for the launcher arm, and an external spring that is used to tie the rope to the limb to, so when internet research said to adjust the spring tension it was confusing until I put two and two together. I guess the point I am trying to make, is that Hamskea should have had that information in their installation instructions instead of me having to go look for it on the internet and being confused. I actually called Hamskea to verify I adjusted things correctly and provided them with constructive criticism that they need to include that in their installation instructions. They told me they have mostly been catering to the pro shops, and they have trained the pro shops on all these matters, but as they plan to sell more directly to consumers, the guy agreed they need to work on their written instructions as well as online videos on their website. the instructions on how to do that in their installation guide. He said they have also been setting the tension higher at the factory as they were hearing from folks that the tension was on the light side, so I probably bought one that was before they started increasing the tension.
I can't really comment on whether I like it or not as I have not shot it more than ten times yet. I have a little bit of an elbow issue right now, so will be a few weeks to a month before I can shoot in earnest. So far, initial impressions are good. Solid constructed piece of equipment that contains arrow and as you draw there is no way the arrow will end up anywhere other than on the center of the launcher arm.
