Video Transcription

hey guys my name is Lily and today I want to try out a new ball this one here is the sentence I'm entering duck and yes mandarin duck has sponsored this video they wanted me to try out one of their both and then they asked me which model of their both I would like a chose this one because the Phantom is a pretty small ball as you can see and yes it's the shortest recurve bow that I've ever had to me it was important that it's short so that you can move around you know and flick brush and I wanted one which is a takedown bowl so that I can take people with me when I'm traveling abroad

besides the ball we also got some accessories I got this wristband here I got a strap for the arrow Kira if you want to wear it on your back but it also comes with this pant loop here so you convert on your belt and this is the quiver which is so beautiful look at it it's the most beautiful quiver I've ever had and this is genuine leather and it's completely hands-on so that's pretty awesome they also have sent me some finger tips and an armed guard which I'm going to use today okay let's try out a couple of shop bullseye



yeah sometimes the tap is sleeping off my finger so it's definitely too big for my hands okay my first impression is that the bowl shoots accurate chefs have to get used to the bowl because now I'm used to other both but yeah it's shooting a current which is a great thing what I don't like about it is the sound you know it's really really loud so actually this is not a big problem because there are some things that you can do against the sound and if a bow is too loud it's not good especially when you're hunting because the deer or the animals that you should will hear you before the arrow reaches the animals so it's better if therefore with silent first I have to data mine where the noise is coming from so let's try this out okay it comes from the Seenu it comes from up here as well and most of the noise comes from in here okay let's disassemble the bow and let's see where the problem is okay I think I know what the problem is the Riza here has a whole log part and I think it sings because of this because it's just like a dove and you have a whole lower body it makes more sound and then slapping a little bit of play just just a little bit okay I brought a few things with me I brought cotton and I'm taking some cotton and I put it into this hole of space of the Rosa it's pretty simple just takes out the sound and then I have prepared these cotton pieces which go inside as well and it will take hard vibrations and it also takes out the little amount of play that the Earthlings have the proven most much better these parts of the bowl are pretty silent now and next I want to silence the strings and for this I have brought some fever puffs these are just strips of the health of the beaver extremely fluffy and it takes away a lot of vibration from the scene you

okay these parks will take out the vibration of the senior the downside of using these is actually that you lose some speed of the scene you and therefore you have a little bit less power for your arrows the next thing that I want to take care of is this curve drop here this is the part where the seenu hits the bow and today I have brought some velcro with me and I want to cut it out and glue it onto this roof here so that the sinew is silenced even more

see it's pretty silent now course grouping was not bad either so I want to try again and shoot a little bit and test my self to the bow yeah I have to say that for $80.00 a bow like this is pretty awesome you know that's a very good deal and after all the silencing mods that I have put on the bow this is really a great bow it's very accurate very accurate and yes a little bit heavy because of the riser it's made of of some kind of heavier metal heavier than my other post but yeah you will get used to it you will build your muscles I want to thank the company mandarin duck for sending me this awesome ball and photo equipment and for sponsoring my video thank you so much if you are interested in buying one of their products make sure that you are visiting their website the link is in the description of this video thank you for watching and stay tuned to the next time
