Final decision

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.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
