I got a chance to shoot this bow at the Boat & Sportman's show in Edmonton and I was very, very impressed. I like to have a short axle-to-axle bow in my arsenal and this one compared very well to the longer bows. Usually shorter bows have a harsher draw cycle and considerably more vibration, but not this one. In fact it was one of my favorite bows by APA. Had a nice draw cycle, and nice back wall and the vibration was nothing unusual. Had I not recently purchased a bow I would have bought this one on the spot.
I have to admit that my archery experience is relatively limited and perhaps it was too soon for me to upgrade to a Mamba Air, but I'm glad I did. As a short draw archer, I couldn't help but always feel a little handicapped, but I also grew to love lightweight, short axle-to-axle bows. This thing is a pocket rocket; it packs a lot of punch in such a compact and lightweight package that remains very shootable with a good draw cycle, solid back wall and forgiving brace height. I think it's a great option for those who want a smaller bow, but don't want to sacrifice performance.
I've been bowhunting for 10 Yeats and had the opportunity to shoot many different bows. I love this particular bow because it is everything you could want in a short light package. No short ATA stigma. Smooth draw ,solid back wall, east to tune, fast, and incredibly accurate for what it is. Perfect for long stalks on big prairie muleys and even better in the stand. A must shoot in my books...
I have the Mamba Air and my wife has the M6. Love the bows and they are crazy fast. Probably the best shooting bows we've ever shot.
Picked up a mamba air and I have nothing but good things to say about this amazing bow, craftsman ship along with quality is a 10/10. Staff was very informative and great to deal with, I recommend apa to everyone
After spending a season in the mountains of central B.C. It is everything I wanted in a hunting bow. From mule deer and whitetail to grouse it covered it all. Thanks APA.
Thanks APA INNOVATIONS for building the most accurate fastest bow out there! Shooting X's right out of the box! Wouldn't shoot any other bow by far the best there is.
I absolutely love my new 2015 King Cobra. Hardest bow ever to set up and sight in tho.. Working out a few kinks here and there but I'm a Saskatchewan boy and I couldn't be happier having a bow from a local company.. Thanks to everyone at APA for their patience with me!
Best bow ever.Have taken 15 elk with a bow.The last 5 with an APA Black mamba set at 80 lbs .Three of them were taken length wise .Two while hunting from tree stands,through the hip and exited through the brisket, and one from the left brisket through the heart and out the right hip while hunting from the ground .Not recommend shots unless you have A very good grasp on elk anatomy and a bow that delivers great velocity.I shoot graphite arrows topped with 100 grain griz trick 4 blade broad heads.I love this bow . Its11years old .I'd really like to try one of APS new bows , thier stats are really impressive.I already have complete confidence in ther product.
Excellent bow. Light weight, superb paint finish (Buckskin Stealth looks amazing!). I bought the Mamba M34 for Field/3D competitions and the carry handle is great for this. (No hunting allowed here in Northern Ireland). Most of my archery club mates have had a few shots out of the bow and it hasn't failed to impress yet! A friend got a King Cobra TF at the same time and he loves it too. Think there will be a few more orders for APA bows coming your way from N. Ireland in the coming months.
