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've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
