    On warranty issues...........Elite and BowTech were both good to me in terms of CS.

    Having to use a warranty....the worse was the old Martin company and Elite [from a few years ago].

    Good information Wenty. Unfortunately that's been going on with Elite for years now. Only difference is it's not as bad as it used to be. I was able to salvage a couple of my Elites by swapping...

    Nicko, that's pretty much how most of my VT strings servings looked after a while. It usually didn't take very long [or very many shots] for that to happen. Serving separating over the cams, draw...

    Shane, if you will not be restricted to local work then my next concern would be if you can purchase over the counter hunting licenses, esp for elk. IMO it sucks to worry about whether or not you...

    Idaho has work in the magic valley because the population is exploding. Cost of living not bad overall. Hunting is good if you don't mind traveling to get to the areas. The back country is a long way...

    Definitely high let off and a little longer valley for my broken down body. I really like binary cam systems for this. Elite, Athens, New Breed, etc. Even the let down that so many complain about is...

    Yeah, that was aimed at me. But I know differently.

    I find it very interesting that VT had to warranty several string sets of mine because of premature serving separation.

    All of my past Elite's were easy to tune for spot on DL with the exception of my last one, a E35. DL was 1/4" long.

    I do not consider a hunter an athlete for the most part. However, the closest a hunter gets to one is hunting the big mountains of out west and/or Alaska, at least here in the U.S.A.

    First off there's nothing wrong with VTX or 452X. Both are good materials but I think BCY X may be the better choice.

    There is, however, many constant complaints on some shops and the way they do...

    It simply is a matter of personal preference, mostly specific eyesight. For hunting I strongly recommend you take into consideration all the different low light conditions you may be confronted with,...

    I would not recommend a weak spine arrow. A stiff arrow will shoot pretty well if the bow is tuned well. I still am of the opinion that the ideal spine is better overall, though. If in doubt, always...

    A kisser button is a win-win item. Where I've found them to really pay off is when hunting from an elevated position.....ie treestand. There's no way anyone can maintain proper form from all the...

    I'll have to take your word on it, CD. I have no plans on going back to a WB, and Blazers work awesome for me, but if I do change back I may give Vanetec a try.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Skeet.

    No I haven't tried them but after two years trying to wear out Blazers, which I couldn't do, I don't see anything being better. I seldom am able to keep arrows for more than 2 years for whatever...

    Saw that on the news and they stated the deer was not injured. Yeah right! Just because they didn't see it fall does not mean it didn't die later on. Internal bleeding can do a lot of damage even...

    For two years I tried to wear out some Blazers shooting thru a WB. I wore out before I could accomplish that. The Blazers looked just as good as the day I fletched them up. I don't know how much...

    I agree with the others.......definitely not worth the chance. Replacing strings is the nature of the beast in archery. My rule is 2 years max.

    From my findings it's to my belief most folks will not notice the difference in arrow flight between a WB and a good drop away. Not putting anyone down by no means, just calling it as I see it.

    Absolutely! Not to mention they are very flat and thin when folded up in the packing mode. I installed a different seat on my LW climber and it turned it into a much more comfortable stand.

    Without doubt the term "Smooth" is very subjective from person to person. For most I would wager to say it means smooth all the way back with little hump in the draw cycle.

    Smooth can also mean...

    Whenever you drop the DW down towards the lower end your DL will increase. Some of that can be tweaked back, however.

    Some other specs may change as well but as you already may know the listed...

    Hi-Ya Clint. Whenever I used my hand held release for hunting and it was cold out, it stayed in my hand that was in my pocket. When the shot time came I would just hook it up.

    It's to my belief that, at least in part, the reason why bow prices are so high is due to everyone demanding some kind of new super revolutionary design every year.

    Interesting, I find just the opposite with my releases. I use kisser buttons and with my wrist releases my anchor points seem more consistent. The only issue is it can be easy to punch the trigger if...
