Final decision

12 posts in this topic

I am not in the market for a new bow, but alot of discussion with my archer friends and we were all defending out stance on the following question.

If you were to purchase a new bow, how would you rate the following 4 choices if it came down to it.

Speed

Feel

Price

Noise

Myself I rate them as this

1. Feel

2. Price

3. Noise

4. Speed

Let us know how you feel

speed

price.

If the bow feels good and is quite, it doesn't matter what it cost. Especially if you like the bow.

yup I agree if you like the bow enough price shouldn't matter...to a point

if the bow is fast enough I don't think noise will be much of an issue(like a gun)

it has to feel comfortable in your hands

I think the middle two are dead even though. With more money you can make a fast bow quiet, but you can't make a quiet bow faster.

It depends on your type of shooting and how you plan on hunting. I hope to hunt more out west and make some longer shots and having a fast, flat shooting bow is important to me.

If the animal can't hear it coming then I'm not worried about speed.

----- Doesnt matter if youre a serious hunter. Quality may cost a bit more, but it will pay off in every aspect of shooting and hunting.

Nothing better than a smooth and quiet bow, speed is nice but overrated. However if two bow feel the same and are both quiet a little flat shooting speed is certainly nice.

Wow,

Think we all are in agreement feel is everything, I am surprised in these economic times that price was the lowest factor for many.

Thanks and keep the survey going.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
