Ross

8 posts in this topic

Anybody else shooting a Ross? I bought the cardiac 2 summers ago and love it. Kind of a bummer when they sold out.

Ross ran his own company into the ground, but they were at the ATA show - somebody bought them or is still offering them, I think maybe Bowtech

Don't quote me on this but I believe Quest Archery may have bought Ross...the only reason I say this is because a buddy of mine broke a limb on his Cardiac. The new limbs say Quest Archery on them. I believe it is G5 who is the parent company of Quest. They are selling the rest of the Ross stock under the Quest Label.

G5 was making parts for Ross. Part of the contract was that if Ross didn't pay their bills they were to get inventory back and could put out their own bow. Don't quote me either, but I am quite sure G5 didn't buy Ross...

Go to Bowtech Archery WEB sight and you'll see they now are the parent company for Ross just as they are for Diamond.

Yes sir. I just got my 09 Cardiac 31 last week and boy she is a shooter. And also Bowtech did pick up Ross and the 09 line-up is under the name Ross by Bowtech, just like Diamond is.

You can get a new in box non-Bowtech Ross Cardiac and some CR models for about 300 bucks right now. These bows were more than double that cost last year.

No warranty would be an issue for some but who cares for that price. I haven't had any problems with my CR 337 in the three years and many shots I have put through it.

Bowtech is now building ross bows. They do not own ross nor did they purchase any of ross's liabilities or previous patents. They have no obligation to honor the old ross warranties but they purchased back some old bows from dealers in exchange for the new ross models to stockpile parts to honor warranties the best they can. They will also work with the customer to get them into a new bow for a CHEAP price should a customer have issues with the old model ross bows. Andy ross is still a part of ross bows. he now works for bowtech and helps with the promotion of the new ross line. Also he did not run the company into the ground as some people think. there was a misunderstanding of a tax law that once he paid the bill for it he fell behind in his payments a small amount and G5 used the parts they made with his patents to launch their own bow line. im not blaming either company of any wrongdoing. if anyone else has any questions i'd be happy to fill you in on all the details.

P.S. yes I do shoot a Ross among several others. My CR334 has been my go to hunting bow for the past 4 seasons though. Smooth and quiet!

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
