View Full Version : Looking for new toy for shoulder....

December 20th, 2012, 11:02 PM
I had shoulder surgery back in July.. I have been back shooting my axe 6 for about a month now. However I was wanting something a little easier on the ole shoulder, soooo I narrowed it down to the vendetta DC or the Supra Max.... Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated....

Vendettas are sweet. Haven't shot the supras but the vendettas are really smooth.

Depends on what you are wanting to use it for. If you are wanting more what I would call a target cam, which more of a feel of a target bow, go with the Supra. If you are looking for a hunting bow with a butter smooth draw, go with the Vendetta. As you can see in my sig I love both these bows. You will not go wrong with either one.

What kind of poundage are you going to want to shoot? Both bows you listed would be a good choice for sure but I would also check out the new phenom,
The specs are right where you are looking for. Good luck

I dont get to shoot 3 d anymore, but I still pratice as I did...( year around).. I am going to shoot about 58 lbs.. I hunt with bow only, but I LOVE praticing long distances and shooting dots....

I also have both the Supra Max and a Vendetta XL. I really like them both. I am shooting the Vendetta for hunting and the Supra Max for 3d and targets. My VXL may be a little smoother on the draw. You will have to try them yourself and find out which feels better for you. Both these bows are super efficient so you could shoot a lower draw weight and still get real good speeds.

Thanks for the reply.. I would love to try these bows, but there are no dealers willing to stock them unless I plan to buy them....

I have both , Vendetta DC and Supra max , both are smooth drawing , if I was going to shoot long distance ( which I will this summer ) I would shoot the Supra , hunting would be the Vendetta w/o a doubt , my Vendetta does draw slightly smoother than does my Supra , they feel the same to me when the Vendetta is set 5-7#s heavier , as far as pull goes
