    Well....I just shot the Contender. At 55#, shooting a 324 gr arrow, for 5.9 gpp, it did 258 fps.

    I also tried the Vector Turbo out. At 56#, it shot a 364 g arrow (6.5 gpp) at 256 fps, a 324 gr...

    I have a Contender Common Man (.ie non-Elite) and it's faster than I expected. It's only 10 fbs or so behind my Alpha Elite. Really nice bow- I'd sell the AE before I sold the Contender.

    I'm the guy that waits a year or two and buys the used bow for $350. I don't need the latest/greatest. A good bow is always a good bow regardless of whether there is something better.

    I could go either way , but I use a wrist/trigger 'cause I'm going to use a strap with the thumb release anyway. Plus, it's fairly hard to find a quiet thumb trigger with an open hook (I used a...

    I have Pro Drops on all the bows in my sig except the Alpha Max 32 on which I have a TT Smackdown. I shoot NFAA and 3d. Haven't had a single problem, ever, with them in 3 years of using them.

    'cause most of the time they offer $500 for an $800 bow. I'd probably take $750 on an $800 bow, if I were selling an $800 bow. Most of mine are in the $300-550 range (Alpha Elite) and I get offered...

    I think you'll find that once you have bareshaft and fletched shooting together, and BS flying nicely thru paper, that BH's will fall right in there, too.

    Not for me. I can switch back to a trigger easily and in fact, I still use a trigger on both my 3D and hunting bows. Shooting the hinge _helps_ me shoot the trigger better.
