Default New bow search

Started my search for a new bow today. Shot the mathews reezen 6.5. I liked it pretty smooth shooter. considering it wasn't really set up for me it grouped nice. Actually sliced the fletchings on 2 arrows. Gonna go to a shop next week and shoot the alphamax and pse xforce. Then go to another shop and shoot bowtech. I wish there was a shop that carried all lines. Would be easy to shoot one after another then go back and forth. By the time I get to the end of my shooting I'll forget what the 1st one shot like.

Give POSSE member Tony a call, he owns Arrowsmith's in Lake geneva he carries Hoyt, Mathews, and I think he also has PSE but I'm not positive on that. It's a bit of a drive from Chicago 1.5-2 hrs but it may save you some chasing around in the long run. 262-249-9933

The bows for 2010 will be coming out in a month. Me, I'd wait and buy the newer model and not last year's model.

Enjoy the quest! The last time I went looking for something I like to have driven myself crazy!(As if I ain't bad enough already?) Second and third guessing myself was the worst of all. There were just TOO MANY choices...WHEW! 'Bout had a relapse or sumpin...

It was maddening before now I look at this brochure for new bows and Im going crazy. So many good choices. Its like buying a video game system. I would like it in writing that there will be no more technological advancements after I purchase said bow. I have to admit that I'm kind of one of those speed guys. I know I'll catch some flak about shot placement and and 250fps is plenty to kill deer. What can I say I like big caliber firearms and fast bows. But I am gonna try to just soot them and pick the one that feels right for me.

Take a look at the newest from Hoyt. They're making a carbon tubed bow now! Looks pretty freaky.
