The Safari Model has 2" Back Set with carbon backed or glass backed and is composed of heat tempered Moso Bamboo.
The Safari model was designed for hunting the largest game in the world such as Africa's big FIVE, Moose, Kodiak, Polar & Grizzley Bear. The Safari will cast very heavy arrows at high speeds. It is designed to do exactly what its name is ~ Safari Hunting. After reviewing many of Howard Hill's personal bows such as "Gram-ma" I saw that a lot of these hunting bows had 2" or more of backset. I personally have hunted quite a bit with 2" backset bows and have taken wild boar, moose, turkey and countless numbers of deer with this bow. I have been perfecting the accuracy of this bow for the past year. Not only is it fast, but it is a tack driver. This model is designed to handle high performance strings. (As long as the loops are padded)
The Safari comes with Fast Flight string.
Back Set is opposite of String Follow. Back Set is set away from the handle or toward the back of the bow. Back Set bows average approximately 10 - 15 feet per second faster than the String Follow model at the same given draw length. These are excellent hunting bows due to the extra energy they deliver. This model will shoot a flatter arrow. They are very smooth with no hand shock.
Back Set models work very well with hunting big game.
Moso Bamboo is a grass, therefore, its soft and flexible. At JET Archery, Moso Bamboo is tempered at high heat. Tempering increases the tensile strength. Strength is the maximum stress that a material can withstand while bending, stretching or being pulled before breaking. Its essential to know the proper methods in tempering Bamboo so it can reach its ultimate tensil strength. It works well with all bow weights especially the heavier draw weights. Once the bamboo is heat tempered, each piece is individually weighed and spine tested. Its then assembled in a specific order to insure the bow reaches its maximum performance.
Bamboo is highly temperature resistant material. In all weather conditions, a bamboo bow will perform to its maximum regardless of temperature.
