What kind of bow?

Post by ILC20 » Sun Jul 11, 2010 7:18 pm

Do you guys/gals own/use?

I have a PSE stinger that I bought in a package for 500$ for pretty much everything I needed including arrows.
It has a whisker biscuit and f16 3 prong sights.

Post pics of your rigs.

It is my first bow I bought about a year or two ago and I learned how to shoot it at bass pro when I bought it. The guy that set it up was the one who taught me how to shoot it and he lit let me practice in their little bow lane. Its interesting because it is the same bow I was looking to buy through the internet and I decided its best to goto a bow shop to get a compound bow set up. I told the guy I have 500$ and he worked with my price range which was cool. He was even going to ask a manager to give me a discount so I could get a pack of 12 arrows and still within my price range but I opted for just 6 arrows at first since we couldn't track the manager down.

Hoyt Katera XL with Sure Loc Lethal Weapon sight, Spot Hogg Whammy rest, and Easton AXIS ST arrows (I think). I like longer ATA length and brace height. It is a heavy bow and would like to get a lighter one, but it will probably be a while until that happens. I'll see if I have any pics.

I have no idea what mine is, but I've had it my whole life and it's 35#, but it feels like it's more.

I've got 2 recurves, one set up for bow fishing,
and my compound is some PSE split limb, 70 lb limbs. can't seem to remember the model though.

I guess I'm a loner. I shoot an Elite Archery Judge. I really like it. I need to get out and shoot the damn thing.

What are the downsides to single-cam Bows?

My Hoyt is a double-cam and the timing gets off after a while. I've considered moving to a single cam, but I've got to think that there may be some potential downsides to it.

Main bow Is a 2011 BowTech Invasion, and my back up bow is a 2008 BowTech General. Both are awesome bows. Very quite and the invasion is screamin fast.
