    This may sound foolish to some, but what the heck. I think overall I shoot better with the grips on my PSE, but I think I can pick up my Hoyt and my hand will locate a consistent grip every time (and...

    I think the best way to "un-fanboy" yourself is to test shoot bows from multiple manufacturers, and if you have an open mind, don't pick the bow, let the bow pick you. I bought a Hoyt Trykon in 2006,...

    I believe I said I was wasn't concerned, just interested in whether it played a factor or not. So overthinking it really isn't an issue.

    The expandable foam. It creates a pretty tough skin, but when exposed, it's a open-celled foam that is relatively fragile IMO.

    The dried outside skin is pretty tough. But if you cut it and expose the open-celled interior, it gets chewed up real quick.

    That bow was slow, but boy was it accurate. I shot better groups at 50 yards (ranged) with that Raider than any other. Took forever to get there, and you needed to check for birds and low-flying...

    The name of your bow says it all.....momentum. I know people say they get fantastic penetration with 360-400 grain arrows. I got 65%-75% pass-thrus at those weights. 450 grains and up and I've always...

    I like to stand and slowly pan around like I'm looking for deer, then stop when I get to the target. I then raise and draw the bow just as slowly as I would if I was preparing to arrow a real deer....

    Ok, I do not shoot arrows that heavy. But my XX78 2314's are 498 grains with a 125 grain Magnus Snuffer (old style-not the SS). They are accurate, quiet and penetrate like crazy. I can set my HHA at...

    First year bowhunting. I was shooting a Hoyt Raider (round-wheel compound) that was probably an inch longer in draw length than it should have been, but it was accurate an known distances. With a 28"...

    Are those holes in the slide? If so they are cavities from the molding process and may have weakened the slide internally. If you are the original owner it should be covered...

    I have used Bohning wax for years. I just had the original ABB strings and cables changed on my 2011 Evo, so they were four years old. Plenty of target shooting and four bow seasons. To be frank,...

    Trajectory at impact

    I never thought too much about how the arrow's trajectory may make a difference when it impacts game, as 99% of my hunting is from a treestand, so the arrow is basically on a downward trajectory for...

    An arrow is following a razor-sharp broadhead. It kills by hemorrhage, not by shock. Yes, a heavier arrow has more impact due to increased momentum, but all that translates into is increased...

    No offense, but arrows do not have "knock down" power. A heavy arrow at decent speed will increase penetration, but it does not induce shock like a rifle bullet.

    Maybe not "indexing" per se, but turning nocks can still produce results even with aluminum shafts. You can square inserts and Uni-Nocks, but turning nocks can still show an accuracy improvement.
