Time for a new bow opinions needed
 
Once again I want to upgrade from my Selena..I have always owned a Hoyt but I have been considering going outside my comfort zone. I have such a hard time finding a good fit bow because I have such a short draw 25in so using a D-Loop I need a bow with a 24in draw...sometimes this limites me. So here are my choices

Hoyt Alphamax
Hoyt Katera
Bowtech Captin
APA Black Mamba X1

Have you actually test shot any of these bows and if so then let that be the process of buying one over an another.

One other thing I might add is why just these bows and not some others?


You might want to look for a bow that is made in half inch length draws too because a d-loop really is a 1/2" length added to your draw. Or you might look at changing your release so your draw is in tighter to your hand and use a small/shorter d-loop. Just trying to help.

We just got a couple of Diamond Iceman bows in the shop. I WILL BE SELLING MY BLACK ICE TO GET ONE! You need to find one near you and take it for a test drive! The Black Ice was the best I've shot until the Iceman cometh.

I would shoot the Hoyt Alphamax. If you do I am sure that will be the bow you will be leaving with. Its a sweet shooter!:)

Have you checked out Parker bows?

Get which ever fits you the best. Only way to do that is to try them all.

Yeah geez... what a bummer huh?


I can't help you move.

Yeah I'm really sorry too because I'm sure it would be loads of fun to see everyone again.

No.... I have to shoot bows all weekend. Yeah it sucks. Takes forever.

I have one small problem with trying these new bows out to see which one I like.I live in a small hick town...we are the only bowshop for miles around, closest would be 6hrs away...& most of them don't stock a 50lb bow with a 24 inch draw.I would have to order one in & pay up front.


So out of the few I' pick are bows that we carry, but I don't want to order one of each because I propably wouldn't be able to sell the the ones I didn't choose. The area where I live, there are not too many women hunters(I'm trying to change that :) ) So any & all input would be nice...right now I'm leaning on the bowtech side because they have a adjustable draw from 24-30 with no bow press required.So when it comes to resale this one would be much easier If i don't like it

I shoot the Black Ice, used to shoot Parker 31, liked it, then for a year had a Martin, that was what I could find to fit, then I picked up the Black Ice, and had to have it. Before they set it up to fit me, my husband shot it , he ended up with one, then my daughter shot mine and she has one. For me it is very forgiving, no recoil, and light weight. I had a good year with it, shot 2 bears and a P& Y buck with it.

Yeah, my problem exactly...kinda stinks doesn't it! I have yet to buy a bow that I have gotten to shoot first :( But I did just pick up an 09 PSE X-Force and it is without a doubt my favorite bow to date....
