    I've raised 3 shooters and this is my experience with all of them. Too young and they can't really follow directions- are not aware of their body- and develop habits that will be HARD to overcome. ...

    Cable slide instead of rollers- some like one, some like the other. I like slides as I just have an easier time tuning them, but rollers seem to me to have a distinct "click" feel to the let-off...

    I've owned a Maxxis 35, still own the AlphaMax 32, and owned a Bowtech Allegiance. There's a lot of apples and oranges here. But, I'd toss the 32" ATA due to your DL and focus on the Maxxis 35. ...

    I agree for the most part but there are times when you have to do that. Not just on an animal but also when shooting in the wind. In the wind, that pin might stop for just a second and that's when...

    Exactly. Plus when I'm hunting, I'm not trying to hit an X. Just trying to hit a 10 ring and a pretty big 10 ring at that.

    10-20 are pretty much the same pin for me. Now, 10 FEET, like on the NFAA Hunter and Field close shots... those are totally different. I'm using my 20 on top of the bull there. I _have_ tested...

    Agree here, but for all your words and challenges, you didn't say anything about HOW you fixed it and that would be useful information.

    Totally agree.



    Agree with this, too. I've been shooting for about 35 years and I spent a LOT of time this past summer working on my DL. Ended up shortening it 1/2" and that made a...

    Same boat. I shoot a Tru Ball HT 4 in all my target things- NFAA, Indoors, and 3D. But when it comes time to hunt, I strap on my Tru Ball Short 'n Sweet. I'm thinking of going back to it for 3D,...

    What's her poundage? My son shoots 30# and we've found that limb driven rests or those that stay up longer work better for him. He's shooting an AAE DOA rest now and really likes it. He won NM...

    It might be more a function of your "secondary" draw length changing. That is, the distance from the string to the back of your elbow. For me, it's much longer with a hand-held release than it is...

    I shoot 27" DL and with a GT 400 at 27 and Hoyt Vector Turbo set to 62#, I'm looking at 299 FPS. It's smooth, fast, and extremely accurate.

    Not with 6", no. As said above, it really takes 10-12" to get "stabilization".

    Try taking your stab OFF and see how you do. I often hunt w/out a stab, esp when stalking.

    How'd they pay for it? Check your PM Sent folder or Trash folder- I've dredged up old transactions that way. Paypal might have a record, too.

    Same.

    I use the EZ Fletch Mini and it puts a nice helical on them and yes, I do get better groups with those- my NFAA scores say so.

    This. It'll only hit 70 at the longer DL. At my 27" DL, though, I think it'll go into the 60's. My son is shooting 21" DL and I think he's good for 30-45# at that.
