New for the 09 season

13 posts in this topic

Well with the talk of the season right around the corner made me wonder who bought a new bow for this year or did some mods to their bow for the upcoming season?

No new bow but i finally broke down and bought some nice much needed new sights. I got the Tru-ball Armortech 7 pin sight, so far Im happy with them and I should be for the price they were. I cant believe how much they want for some of the higher quality sights but Im sick of buying cheap sights and breaking something on them every year. Other than that my setup will be the same as it was last year.

I loved my last bow, but got a kick-butt deal on a brand spankin' new Hoyt and couldn't pass it up. So far, I really like this rig- a Hoyt AM35. I've got an HHA 3 pin slider, Kazaway drop away rest, new quiver and stabilizer... I'm shiny and new again! It will be fun to put it to the test this Sep.

Joe15 - have you shot that Mission much yet? I'm hoping to get a new bow next year and the Mission line-up looks like a lot of bow for the money - I just am not gonna be able to drop a grand on a setup. Only problem is the local archery shop doesn't carry them.

I put a QAD total containment drop away ultra rest on my bow. It's awesome. First arrow at game zipped my Magnus Stinger right through a turkey a month ago.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
