New Bow

8 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone, looking for some advice on a new bow. I've been shooting a lot of different bows and am looking for feedback on the Reflex Growler. This one seems to shoot well and at a price that is affordable for me. any insight on this bow would be appreciated.

Nice line of bows. If it fits you well and you're happy with it, I'd say go for it. One thing to think about is that Hoyt is getting rid of it's Reflex line and it may become more difficult in getting replacement parts, modules, etc down the road.

I was close to posting the same topic, has anyone shot a diamond? I was looking at the diamond rock.

I shot the black ice last year thought it was a nice bow but decided to hold off another year and buy a new one this year. My budy ended up getting the black ice and he loves it. Thats the only diamond i've had any experience with though.

I looked at the the Rock, very nice bow, same price range. I didn't think it was quite as smooth as the Growler, that wasthe only thing I could tell a difference in. If you get a chance to shoot both let me know your thoughts as well. Both Bows sent arrows out fast.

Does bowtech make diamond?

Yes bowtech does make diamond

I had a diamond triumph and I LOVED it. This fall I will probably be getting a 07 or 08 black ice this fall when people are clearing them out to get the 09's. All that I've heard about the diamond line is very good. The black ice that I tried I could Draw a 70( there are only about 2 to 3 bows that I can draw at 70). I sold my triumph to a friend for two reasons, the first is that I just bought a Hoyt Pro-elite, second he cracked the fork on his bow where the cam attaches. If I hadn't needed the money and he hadn't broken his bow i probably would have kept my diamond.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
