I remember that my Dad had a Herters long bow in the early 60s when we lived in Baton Rouge La.
He is 74 or 75 now.
He shoots an MQ1 also.

I have owned over 100 bows in the past so I will not begin to list; I have bought and sold just about every bow made but have owned one of the Mathews ever since they were introduced; currently shooting the Icon but probably will buy the switchback when the local shop gets one in; shooting fingers but will switch to release with new bow; :cool:

January 4th, 2005, 11:55 PM
Of the people who tried to break down the bows they've owned?..........we managed to total 595 different bows for 53 people ! :eek:

What does this mean? (Other than I have a little too much time on my hands :rolleyes: )

I would say as a whole.......we have some issues. :D

Carry on.

January 5th, 2005, 07:52 AM
It means nothing more than seeing just how much love people have for the sport and seeing just how far they have taken it. :D

Also seeing a few fellow members that maybe shoot the same bow I shoot, or the same bow you shoot, or the same bow he/she shoots and being able to swap tips and tricks in tuning.

January 5th, 2005, 08:14 AM
I'll throw my two cents worth in. My very first bow was a Ben Pearson fiberglass bow I got for Christmas when I was about 8. It had a whopping draw weight of 20 lbs. :) My adult archery career started with one of the original style Allen compounds in the early 70s. Then, in order:

Of the people who tried to break down the bows they've owned?..........we managed to total 595 different bows for 53 people ! :eek:

What does this mean? (Other than I have a little too much time on my hands :rolleyes: )

I would say as a whole.......we have some issues. :D

Carry on.

FS560 just blew those numbers out of the water.

Wow FS560, If you still have all of them you could open you own store or museum. :D

In 1981 I made a home made recurve in wood shop in Highschool. I shot targets for about two weeks and retired it.

In 1984ish I purchased a used Bear Whitetail Hunter from a budy of mine in the Army for 25 bucks. I plan to murder a mule deer with it this year.

Pretty long list, huh? LOL

Lets see if I can get the order and the dates right.

1. '84 Martin Lynx Magnum - exel cam 60lbs 50% letoff.
2. '80 Martin Couger Magnum - 55lbs wood limbs, round wheel, smoooooth.
3. '90? Bear Whitetail II - 60lbs average bow indestructable
4. '90? Bear Whitetail Legend - same as above with recurve style limbs.
5. '89 Martin Onza - Cast riser, 100lbs excel cam :eek: now 60lbs with ultrasonic wheels.:)
6. '95 Hoyt Prostar maredian - Target excellent bow
7. '95 PSE legend longbow - made in korea----don't shoot it
8. '01 Lone Wolf kayapo - 56lb recurve very smooth made in Michigan.
9. '84 Martin Lynx recurve - 47lbs same riser as #1 just added recurve limbs. I wish they would still made these. I would buy 2!
10. '90? Martin Onza - Machined riser trying to figure a way to put Nitrous cams on it. My favorite bow.
11. Martin Scepter III elite - 60lb fury-x now 49lb nitrous-x. Everyone should shoot a bow like this. It is more accurate than I am!

The two bears I sold to people starting out in the sport. the Hoyt was sold to my friend and shooting partner, who uses it every week. Still have all the others. If I would have bought every bow that I shot and liked I would have hundreds. Can't say I have ever shot a bow I didn't like (although them high poundage english style longbows tested me).
