- Really great bow Review by tradbowmike
Value Quality Price
Have had this bow for several months now. It is a very stable, smooth shooting recurve. I shoot three under and the limbs adjust easily for that style. Compared to my Buffalo, the Tiburon has less vibration. I have tried shooting off the shelf and with an elevated rest and plunger. Both methods work well. Like the Buffalo, the Tiburon will shoot a wide variety of arrow spines accurately. I have had none of the issues noted above; everything was well finished and fit together nicely. I highly recommend this bow.

- Not what I expected Review by Tradbow78
Quality Price Value
I have been shooting for about 23 years. I have own many Hoyt compounds and usually stayed with Bear traditional gear. This was my first traditional style Hoyt. I love the look and that is about it. I, like the other reviewer, spent about 2.5 hours removing paint and some burs in order to be able to get the bottom limb to seat in the Formula pocket. The top limb popped in right away with no problem. The bottom limb would not go without a lot of work. I am so disappointed with Hoyt right now due to the amount of money I shelled out for this bow. And in messing with it I am realizing the paint/ powdercoat used on the riser comes off if you just look at it wrong. So where I thought this bow would be a real tough hunting bow.... I find myself babying it so as not to knock off all the paint. Oh... Did I mention how disappointed I am... Just making sure you heard that part. Actually- sick feeling is more like it. Hoyt may have me on the compounds but I am afraid this will be my last Hoyt recurve.

- Great bow... Review by AJ
Value Quality Price
The all new Tiburon is no fancy schmancy Olympic rig or a breath taking custom bow but its a high performance piece of kit which is built to last...it pines for the wilderness where its no-nonsense design and brick house construction will be put to good use.
Out of the box it will shoot just as good as any other traditional recurve set-up, but the beauty of the Tiburon is that its technological/modern side provides the archer with a myriad of options in the way of aftermarket parts. Based on the Hoyt 'Formula system', it allows for a a range of modifications, from high performance limb upgrades to rests, plungers, sights and quivers.
The Tiburon has reserved itself a seat somewhere in between two very conflicting extremes; 'simplicity' and 'tune-ability'. Thats a great balance to have in a bow.

- Tiburon with f7 limbs Review by metinemre
Quality Price Value
I ordered Tiburon as ``riser only`` from Lancaster and f7 carbon-wood limbs. I already knew f7`s would be a lot better to shoot with; rather than the stock limbs that come with the tiburon set. So far i shot at least 1000 arrows and i`m totally in love with my set up. I had no problems with f7 limbs seating into tiller pockets as the other review but then my limbs are different than his stock limbs. I would definitely suggest Tiburon riser; no hand shock, no vibration. Perfect feeling; dead in hand. As many people say this is what Buffalo and Game master would dream of...

- disapointed in quality Review by bitkar
Price Value Quality
I received the black bow 64" 40# limbs wouldn't seat into tiller pockets or in button pockets the paint was to thick on limps also the riser at the tiller pocket just as limbs start to seat had a sharp edge such as a rough casting would have upper and lower. the button pockets also had to much paint they wouldn't even start into the pockets upper and lower. I used a very small file to file off the paint on the limbs about 1/4" just removing the paint. same with button pockets. I filed off the sharp edges on the tiller pocket the limbs fit real tight and the button. I contacted Hoyt and told them of the problem they said that they do not assemble at factory "sad" they think they are so good.
Bow shoots real good after messing with it for about 3 hrs.
