    I think that after a solid 3 weeks of good shooting that I will start to really believe that the arrows are going to hit where aimed.

    Maybe take a 5/16" rod and drive it in behind the tip and insert and try to drive it all the way through the target. This might just push the tip to the side and not work. If there was some way to...

    Barnett Vortex Hunter $200

    It looks like with a few improvements these bows could be a quality bow. It does not look like a quality bow as is to me.

    Makes me wonder how much it really cost to make a bow.

    I think that most tree climbers use static rope for everything. I have never used any dynamic rope. I can see where dynamic rope would cushion the fall and reduce the loads.

    Canting really affects my arrows impact. My bow is shooting around 160 fps so there is a large arc to the target. A slow bow shows the affect of cant more than a fast bow.
