new bow?

6 posts in this topic

That leaves it pretty open. I would figure out what you are willing to spend on one...then I would go to your nearest bowshop and test them. Just about all the bows made nowadays are pretty good. I would go with any one that shoots and feels good to you....and fits your budget. Good luck

Yeah I request that you buy two and send one to me.

Try shooting a bunch of bows spend time looking at them with an expirenced pro shop. You'll find something that fits you and your budget... More importantly you. Buy once and buy exactly what you want. Make minimal compromises.

Dont get caught up in sales hype about speeds. Any of the new bows are plenty fast to suprise a deer. Its more important to be able to put the shot were you want then how fast it gets there.

I'd suggest looking into Mathews, Bowtech, and Hoyt. There are many other good companies. Read alot on the subject and you will get a feel of what important in some peoples opinion.

If I were to buy a new bow two requirements I have are 7"+ brace height and a firm backwall. I like thin hand grips to reduce torque. I like the silencer system of Mathews but dislike their back wall. I didn't like the cam over of the PSE X-force. I want to be able to smoothly draw a bow. I really like the some of the Bowtechs I shot.

the best way to find which bow is for you is to draw back a few different models and find out which one is the most comfortable. if it isn't comfortable, you'll never really like shooting it, and have a more difficult time getting consistent. Try a diamond, they are excellent bows made by bow-tech. bow-tech bow, with a cheaper price tag. the only difference is bow-tech sells diamond an unfinished bow, and diamond puts a different camo pattern on them, making them cheaper. the camo pattern just isn't a big $$ name brand, but still look good.

There are more differences than that, they are completely different bows. Diamonds are single cam bows and BowTech use binary cam technology. I will agree though, that Diamonds are good bows, good spead, and are quite quiet.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
