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.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
