Does anyone own a bowtech 82nd airborne?

5 posts in this topic

Been lookin to get a new bow and I have a short draw length was wondering if anyone has feedback on wether they like it or not. Looking for a little more speed but don't want to comprimize shootability. I am not new to archery just have never moved into a so called speed bow.

I shot it but wasn't impressed. Granted I have the shoulders of a 60 year old in a 25 year olds body. Peak was too much and didn't think it was that good of a bow for the money. I ended up with a carry over mathew's but I also have bad shoulders so that's why.

I did shoot the 82nd last year along with a few other bows just for the fun of it. Not a bad bow but wasnt in love with it, I thought it was a little on the loud side and not the smoothest bow Ive ever shot but other than that not too bad. It is crazy fast though even compared to my allegiance. The best bow I shot last year was the Bowtech guardian smoothest and quietest bow out there IMO. My cousin ended up buying it and at a 26.5 or 27 inch draw length I think he was shooting around 260 fps. Really any new high end bow is going to get you into the 250-280 fps but like you said it depends alot on draw length also. Speed isnt everything, dont get a bow that your not comfortable shooting just because it shoots 30 fps faster than one that feels alot better.

I do understand the importance of having a bow fit and be comfortable to the shooter. I'm just looking for some personal feed back on the bow. I'll just have to go shoot it and see how it feels. I'm going to shoot alot of different bows. I'm just not set on any one paticular manufacture or model.

Nothing takes the place of first hand experience. You need to go try it.

I bought a new bow last year and I tried them all. CHeap, high end, fast slow, etc. I tried the 82nd and didn't like it. I thought it was too aggressive and have vibration on the shot.

My two choices were the PSE Xforce 6 and the Hoyt Katera. I chose the PSE because it was faster, lighter and had less vibration.

All I have added to my bow is a string tamer and its quiet and shock free. You should try the PSE.

    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
