Many designs have come and gone with the purpose of mounting limbs to risers. Bolts, clamps, pins, dovetails, you name it. In the end, nothing seems to out-perform the ILF system. ILF limb pockets allow for full adjustment of tiller as well as limb angle. The adjustability and simple take-down of ILF limb pockets means consistency and accuracy on the range as well as in the field.
The Ghost Takedown from PSE is a premium ILF (International Limb Fit) Takedown bow that will get you in the game without breaking the bank. This is probably the most affordable "Top-Shelf" recurve on the market. PSE's answer to the Hoyt Buffalo, this is probably the ultimate backpack bow. Whether you're heading to the range on lunch break or trekking through the Rocky Mountains, this bow fits.
The PSE Ghost recurve accepts all styles of ILF limbs, something that can't be said for competing takedown hunting bows. The Ghost's riser is crafted from an arched Ebony core with Senna Siamea laminations. This combination of materials provides exceptional strength and rigidity while maintaining a very light weight and the warmth only wood can provide. The riser of the Ghost also features fully adjustable limb pockets to provide unmatched tunability.
The Ghost's limbs are comprised of a maple core strengthened by clear fiberglass laminates. The clear glass laminates do an outstanding job of showing off the beautiful hardwood core. The maple core, renowned for decades as a material of choice for traditional limbs, provides a smooth draw and blistering arrow speeds. The limb design of the PSE Ghost allows for flex all the way to the tip. This reduces stacking at longer draws and produces a flatter draw curve. Penetration is not going to be an issue with this one.
You just can't beat the warmth of hardwood when it comes to a traditional bow riser. With its Ebony core and Senna Siamea laminations the Ghost's riser is rigid and stable while keeping weight down.
We take the guess-work out of your setup so that you can spend less time tinkering and more time shooting. Every bow is set-up, tested, and fired 50-60 times to ensure the best combination of brace height, tip weight, and arrow spine.

|GLOVE CHOICE #1 Most Popular
Neet FG-2 Glove
These gloves have been on the market for decades, and for good reason. They just work! High quality suede leather construction combined with a tough Elastic back insert makes for one of the most comfortable and effective gloves on the market. Smooth leather fingertips allow for a clean release every time with no string twist. Best of all, the Neet FG-2 glove seems to last nearly forever when properly cared for.
|GLOVE CHOICE #2
The Neet "Pinch-Free" Tab has got to be one of the smoothest releasing tabs around. The soft felt finger spacer prevents nock-pinch and makes for a much more consistent release than other designs. The Pinch-Free Tab's backing is made of super-soft suede leather to give good durability while preventing the tab from slipping off your fingers between shots and providing good purchase on the tab while shooting. All in all, the Pinch-Free tab is hard to beat!
|YOUR ARM GUARD
Custom Leather Armguard w/ Elastic
We provide you with a custom leather armguard to take the sting out of shooting. Constructed of tough, yet supple, dark brown leather, our custom armguard is easy on your string as well as your wrist. Our armguard also features three elastic closures with speed loops to aid in taking it on or off. You can also wear it over loose clothing to keep your sleeve out of the path of the string.
|YOUR BOW STRINGER
Premium Recurve Bow Stringer
Modern recurves are not easily strung. While you aren't buying the bow of Odysseus it is still nice to have an easy way to get it strung. This premium recurve bow stringer will reduce the possibility of limb warpage or bow damage while stringing. We don't recommend any other method for stringing your recurve as damage can easily occur. Featuring tough leather pockets and a high tensile string, our Premium bow stringer should last indefinitely.
|ARROW CHOICE #1 Most Popular
Easton Axis Traditional Arrows
Half-dozen custom fletched Easton Axis Traditional Arrows.. Durable, lightweight shafts fly 20% faster than comparable aluminum arrows. Provides excellent penetration and knock-down power. Fletched with feathers. All arrows come with practice tips installed (matched to the grain weight of your broadheads - of course).
|ARROW CHOICE #2
Easton XX75 Aluminum
Sometimes it's better to stick with what works. More deer have been killed with the XX75 than any carbon arrow can dream about. This is the true "old standard" against which all hunting arrows are judged. Sturdy 7075-T9 aluminum construction with Super UNI bushing and S-Nocks installed. Superior flight and reliable penetration. Tips included.
|BROADHEAD CHOICE #1
Muzzy Phantom Broadheads
The Muzzy Phantom Broadhead is well known for its legendary toughness and penetration. The Phantom offers total confidence for the serious big game hunter. The 4-blade design includes two .040" primary blades and two .028" secondary blades, for ultimate penetration performance. 1-1/8" cutting diameter. When you are looking for deep penetration, the Muzzy Phantom has many rivals and few equals.
|BROADHEAD CHOICE #2
Magnus Stinger Broadheads
All Magnus Stinger Stingers perform flawlessly from the fastest bows on the planet... with field-tip accuracy. The quality of our construction is unmatched, but if you break one, Magnus will replace it by the terms of their Lifetime Guarantee. You can sharpen the main blades yourself, or replace them... either way, the Stinger effectively fills every need for a solid hunting broadhead.
|QUIVER CHOICE #1

Best of all this baby is VERY adjustable. We're pretty sure it will fit anyone and everyone. The Neet Back Quiver also features a hard plastic endcap in the bottom to keep you safe from your arrows.
|YOUR ARROW REST
Shelf Plate & Rest (style may vary)
Sometimes simple is just the way to go. When you're shooting traditionally it is hard to beat shooting off the shelf. No other arrow rest gets your arrow closer to the "sweet spot" ergonomically. While off-the-shelf shooting requires extremely careful tuning of bow, arrows, and shooter, once you are shooting there is nothing to fail, nothing to adjust. It doesn't get any simpler.
|YOUR STRING SILENCERS
Mountain Man Beaver Balls
These things are great! Real ultra-soft Beaver-Fur strips for your string. It doesn't get anymore premium. Mountain Man Beaver Balls are easy to install too. Simply slip one end of the strip between the fibers of your string, wrap it closely around the string until you get the other end, then tuck the other end between the fibers. After a quick waxing up to the silencers you're done! Best of all, they're SUPER quiet.
|BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
Each bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The brace height is carefully set and tested, the nocking point is crimped on, arrows are tested based on your draw length, draw weight, and release style. Any hardware is carefully installed and carefully adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to match the ideal setup for your configuration. Finally, the string is waxed and the bow wiped down. Each bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws or damage. If the bow isn't up to standards, it doesn't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is carefully tuned by one of our staff shooters to ensure the earliest possible arrow stabilization . Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow flies clean and true, indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean minimum-contact launch. Be advised that additional tweaking may be required as traditional bows are extremely sensitive to individual shooting form.
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes an exact fit for your shooting form difficult to achieve, we are certain that you won't find anyone who performs a cleaner out-of-the-box tune on traditional equipment. Only minimal fine-tuning for your individual form should be required.s
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
|PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
